My students need soft and durable volleyballs for an extracurricular volleyball sports class.
The five and six year old students attend an urban school with over eighteen hundred students. The kindergarten students are eager to learn, curious, and creative. They are hard workers and love to play. They are from different backgrounds and speak a variety of languages at home and in the community. Some live in single parent households while others live with multiple extended family members. These students need more imaginative play time to balance out the rigor expected from the district. School is full of important academics; however, playing while learning keeps everyone motivated. Their pure love for learning mixed in with the diverse cultural environment makes me love being a teacher.
Our school serves students in grades kindergarten through eight and provides challenging academics, excellent teachers and a safe learning environment.
As a result, we are usually a high academic performing school within our district. Our goal is to prepare our students for further success in high school, college and ready for a career.
For many students at my school, this is their first time playing this organized sport. It is difficult to teach them when they have very little to practice with. The students have a thirst for learning new sports and come to volleyball class with an eagerness to participate in any activity set before them.
Currently, students practice outside on the blacktop area with equipment brought by teachers from home.
We do not have volleyballs, nets or poles to use for this sport. I am hoping to provide adequate equipment to help them practice and learn how to become competitive players by teaching such skills as serving, bumping, setting and spiking. We will need this equipment so each player can practice during the after school extracurricular volleyball class. This project will allow them the opportunity to play volleyball and the soft volleyballs will be most helpful for the students that are new to the game.
