Mrs. DAVIS from Stamford CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Speakers and Music for Physical Education

My students need speakers, a cord, and microphone in order to be able to hear the fitness test cadence loud enough so they have the best chance to be successful and they perform better on all activities when motivating music is playing.

My Students

Our students are a very diverse group of kids that come from all types of backgrounds, nationalities and countries.

60% are English as a second language learners who find a common ground with music.

They enjoy opportunities to socialize, play and have fun. We have almost 600 students that we see 2-3 times a week that would love the opportunity to move more with music! Each year the students must take the fitness test and being able to hear the counts is extremely important.

My Project

Currently we only have one speaker which is not very loud and does not make it easy for our students to hear counts, so I believe this would increase the students' test scores. The students also participate more and increase activity when music is played. Each day we do some type of cardiovascular warm up and the students perform better and get their heart rate up and keep it up more with music.

Having a quality speaker on each side of our gym would allow our students to clearly hear the fitness test cadence and allow music to be a daily part of our class.

The students perform better on the tests when they can clearly and loudly hear the counts of the cadence. This has made practicing for the test hard as we can not do small groups with large classes.
