Our school is one out of fifteen schools in an urban school district that has over 11,000 students. The students come from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds but they all have the same focus when they enter the gym, to have FUN!
I try to make sure FUN and exercise is always happening for my students when they come to the gym.
This year I have introduced the students to new games and activities, along with some of their favorites that they always enjoy playing. The students are so excited to be playing that they don't even realize that exercising could be so FUN!
I love seeing my students' faces when they come into gym class and see what today's activities will be. They squeal with excitement and some even thank me and give me hugs because they had so much fun.
I believe scooters and beach balls will be so exciting for them.
Some of my most fondest memories of my gym class when I was younger was with scooters. You get to scoot around with the wind in your hair and forget about the stresses of school work for a little while. I hope my students can experience playing scooter soccer, relay races and an obstacle course this Spring with the new scooters.
