My Students

My students need a release from the every day problems they have to face at a young age. Movement and physical activity helps them focus on fun and health, physically and mentally.

I teach second grade in a Title I school.

The majority of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Many come from a diverse population with a wide range of ESE with special needs, ESOL and speaking a language other than English at home. Despite the challenges that they face on a daily basis, they still have an eagerness for learning and are always enthusiastic to have new ways of learning.

They struggle with focus and I am constantly having to come up with differentiated activities to keep them engaged and ready to learn. They are very creative and get excited when they know they have mastered new concepts. I use that excitement to get them to give effort in their independent and group work. Because all my students are below level, I instruct them to always give effort and to always try to do better than before, in all their work.

My Project

My students are very hyper and inattentive when it comes to learning and I know much of their lack of abilities comes from lack of nutrition. I what them to understand that they need to make good decisions in what they put in their bodies and how they take care of it with activity. These materials will help them see and understand that their nutrition and wellness comes from within and they need to eat better and get outside more.

"Small changes makes a big difference" - Unknown.

My students will use the filtered pitcher to clean the water from the faucet, the water fountain and from Spring Water. Then we will test the filtered water and the regular faucet, water fountain, and spring water. Then they will test purified water to find out which one is the best to drink that is cost effective for our low-socioeconomic families. We will then learn about germs, fitness, and health by watching videos from kidshealth.org and reading our health books, from the Food and Nutrition library. Then we will learn how to read Nutrition labels and compare the nutrition we get from Organic snacks and candies to regular popular snacks and candies. To finish up, they will get the Kids My Plate handouts to test their health knowledge. We will then clean the room, as well as our hands and look at the dirt that we accumulate daily and how cleanliness affects health. We will incorporate the activity mats in our indoor recess for more physical activity.
