My Students

My students are incredible. I have twenty-four motivated English Language Learners who are eager to learn. My students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds with limited resources available to them. We are a Title I, Performance Improvement School with one hundred percent of our students on the free lunch program. Many parents work two jobs and are struggling to support their families.

Though their environment may not be conducive to learning, my students have an insatiable love of learning.

I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can experience success.

My Project

My students have so much energy that I need them to release some of it outside.

We all have different likes so I thought it would be great to have a pot pourri of equipment.

The boys love throwing a football so I thought a few could be used to play catch. The girls on the other hand would rather toss a frisbee. It is soft so even if it hits their arms or body, it is so soft that it won’t hurt. The inflatable balls are easy on the hands and light enough for anyone to throw. They can just throw the ball to each other by tossing it in the air. Last, the scoop ball set comes with a plastic handle and a small plastic ball. One partner tosses the ball and their partner has to catch it by scooping the ball.

To keep everything in place a mesh ball bag is requested.
