My class is made up of diligent, inspiring, and creative fourth graders with big hearts and analytical minds. They attend school every day with purpose and a desire to learn something new, to discuss what they think, and take pride in their efforts. My students learn in a bilingual community with a high level of family support. They attend our school with growing technology opportunities that enhance their approach, application, and articulation of their knowledge and their new learning. We balance this with creativity and physical opportunities with that support the development of persistence, teamwork, and determination.
My project involves developing healthy lifestyles through physical activity through the game of soccer while providing high motivation with music. The bluetooth portable speaker will be used to develop and use playlists for dynamic warm-ups, speed and agility drills, and during friendly short-sided games. Warm ups will allow students to get their blood pumping and their muscles ready for drills and skills. The music from the speaker will serve as a motivating component of speed and agility drills. Students will be able to enjoy their fitness time because they will be able to move and play to the music.
The soccer balls will be used both indoors and outdoors to teach and develop soccer skills.
Some of the skills to be practiced include technical ball control (such as foundational footwork, passing, receiving, and shielding), tactical plays (such as give and go, switching play), and friendly soccer scrimmages.
