My Students

It doesn't take much to get my students excited about new games and things to learn. From the Kindergarten level all the way to fifth grade I can always count on them to be ready for a new adventure.

I love that my students are passionate about their time in our PE classes.

But often their surroundings and environment tell a different story. Extra resources are tough to come by in our school; this is especially true for resource classes.

My Project

A Monster ball is a great resource for a physical education class. It is an exciting tool that takes the pressure off individual students and creates a fun activity that never gets old.

Monster balls are a classic PE item that almost every kid remembers playing with at some point.

They can also be used for fitness activities that involve coordination and focus. Using the monster ball as a target enables students to hone their throwing skills, without using elimination games like dodge ball.

They are also a great investment because the protective cover enables the ball to be used for years to come.
