My students come from a diverse home setting. Most of my students are raised by single parent families or grandparents and live in government housing.
This equipment would allow my students to be more competitive in PE class.
This equipment will show them that they are important and physical education is an important part of their education. Sometimes, my students are taken out of PE for different reasons and this begins to upset them. Hopefully having more equipment that the students enjoy will also show other teachers that PE is important in our students lives.
Just this year alone, I have begin to teach my students new games and activities that they can do for a lifelong activity. It so important for my students to learn these activities so they can carry them on, into their adult life. Showing them that health and activity is an important part of your life.
We play so many different games in PE class and my students always want to know what their score is and who is winning. So much of their day is surrounded by numbers and test scores they are programmed to knowing what the score for the game is. This equipment will allow them to keep score of games and activities we do in PE class. And they love being in charge of the score board. One of their favorite games is 4-square volleyball and it's impossible to keep score of all 4 teams at one time, however this equipment will allow me to do that.
