Team Work Makes the Dream Work

Help me give my students fun opportunities for team building and cooperation through physical education!

My Students

I work with 400 students in grades K-6 as a physical education teacher. The students here are highly motivated in the physical realm and love trying new things.

We range in programs from cross country skiing and snowshoeing, to circus arts (stilts, juggling, pogo sticks) and gymnastics, Junior Native Youth Olympic Games, as well as your standard basketball, soccer, tag games, etc.

Our school's population varies in diversity both culturally and socioeconomically; however, we do not qualify for additional funding from Title I just yet. With limited funding for the entire school, the PE department receives no money for new equipment and we have many outdated and broken items that need replaced.

My Project

Through physical education, we are able to facilitate healthy relationships, cooperation, teamwork, and promote social emotional learning. My goal is to use more colorful visuals to these games by providing cones, parachutes, and spinning plates to our supply closet.

Students can quickly see and find areas in the gym they need to travel to when everything is marked and color coordinated.

All of our activities provide ways for students to interact with different peers and having team colors makes the process go much quicker. We currently are limited in the supplies we have and would love to add some new equipment to our closet!
