My Students

I am a physical education teacher in a Title I, K to 5th grade school. Many students are from low income households and are English as a new language learners. Many work very hard to assimilate to their new culture and make progress academically by attending several after school programs which limits their time for physical activities. This often results in them only receiving physical activity during scheduled physical education class. Situations such as these provide little to no time for physical activities.

My Project

Our school is a Move to Improve All Star School. As a lead physical education teacher, I assist teachers in developing and implementing Move to Improvement activities to use with the children within their classrooms. These materials will help to create innovative and enthusiastic ways to continue to engage our students and keep them moving to stay fit.

The premise of this program is to incorporate activity into their regular routines throughout the day.

The K-2 grades can use juggling scarfs while practicing dance and performing various aerobic activities. Juggling is a workout for your brain and body while helping to improve concentration. Many of these activities are aligned with content areas in the core curriculum while helping to promote a healthy lifestyle as well as both physical and mental fitness. The Jump Bands will be used for aerobic activity helping to develop balance, agility and coordination.
