My students come from a rural community that takes pride in our kids' education as a whole. Many of my students receive free and reduced-price lunch and breakfast. Due to the high poverty in our district, many of my students do not get the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of ways to stay physically active.
Our building is an early elementary and is home to over 300 rambunctious, loving kids under seven years old.
Students love to come to Physical Education, so we make the most out of every minute by finding new ways to get active daily.
My students have not had experience with any form of net games and I would love to change that. I have requested two nets, four portable posts that would allow me to introduce a variety of games and skills.
Volleying over the net is only the tip of the skills that can be introduced with this project.
My students will be able to use the nets for defensive strategies, invasion games, hand eye coordination and gross motor skills. I am always trying to find ways to expose my students to as many different ways of living healthy active lifestyles. This project would all me to add to our current curriculum.
