Mr. Spiker from Chattanooga TN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the gift of play by providing Spikeball sets, so they can stay active, healthy, and work on many skills that can transfer to other sports and activities.
Do you remember back when you were younger and enjoyed playing small-sided games with your friends, with a big grin on your face? You looked forward to the next time you saw those same friends so you could get a rematch in. My students share this passion and excitement for physical activity and look forward to the hour time they get to play and just be children. A time where they forget about the struggles outside of school and enjoy their time socializing and playing with friends.
My students love to be physically active and crave exciting new games to play.
Students at my school are creative, playful, and each comes with their own unique, awesome personality. It is wonderful to see my students learning how to problem solve, work on cooperation, and socialize with one another in gameplay.
Physical literacy can help students to become active adults. For my situation, I have classes of 25 middle school students in an elementary sized gym. Due to the limited space, I need to find creative ways to engage students in small-sided games, while increasing the time spent being active and reducing the risk of injury. Since volleyball requires a big space and only so many students can participate at one time, Spikeball helps students develop those hand striking skills that can transfer to many other sports and activities.
My students will use the Spikeball sets to work on teamwork, hand-eye coordination, strategy, and to create a lifelong love for physical activity.
Spikeball is a very engaging game that incorporates many different skills to achieve physical literacy. It can be modified and leveled to the needs of beginner students, and can also be modified to meet the needs of even your most advanced students. This will not only benefit the athletic students but each and every child that steps foot in my class
