Ms. Sasha from Brooklyn NY is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students kettlebells, weighted sandbags, a bench, and a Legend Fitness Wood Plyo Box to add to our weight equipment.
New York City is known as the "melting pot of the world". Why? Because human beings of all different ages, races and cultures call NYC their home. Our school is no different. Located in the heart of the Weeksville District, we are a Title I school with the majority of our school population being underserved youth. Within all schools, there is one subject that mixes all of the ingredients together, a spoon that stirs the pot, and that subject is physical education.
"Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states." - Carol Welch
Through the use of team building, cooperative games, and team sports I seek to develop physically literate student-athletes. In addition to being physically active, health education is also important. I am a firm believer that we are all lifelong learners and love having the opportunity to share this belief with the students at our school.
While it has been ingrained in students that math, science, and ELA are the cornerstones of their education, I believe strength training class is the most important class. This is not to devalue any course students are taking because all of the courses are extremely important. However, the things that they learn in strength training class are skills that will propel them to conquer challenges in any area of life now and for the next 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years.
In this class, students will learn how to overcome obstacles, conquer fear and failure, set lofty goals, work together, encourage those around them, and, last but not least, embrace the process of becoming the best at getting better.
On top of that, this class will help in reducing obesity rates in our youth and improve their cognitive abilities and mental health. Help me give my students kettlebells, weighted sandbags, a bench, and a Legend Fitness Wood Plyo- box to add to our weight equipment.
