I teach 20 first graders in Compton, California. My students live in a low-income community with limited places for active play. I would like to bring active children into action by providing my class with physical education equipment and musical instruments. I teach all subjects - my students do not have a physical education teacher or a music teacher. I serve as their physical education and music teacher. I am talented in teaching both subjects especially in music. I play the piano for my students daily while they sing and I would like to provide opportunities for my students to be creative. I would like them to learn beat and rhythm using small instruments. Also, I would like to play the drum for my students so they could express themselves creatively and build self confidence. In addition, I would like to incorporate physical fitness with music. I would like to provide simple games during physical education and recess time. I believe that my students do not get enough play time at home and the only opportunity for play time is when they are at school. These resources would provide active play time for a first grade class. It will help my students physically while boosting confidence. Thank you for your consideration!
