My Students

Our students need to be physically active, it helps them learn and process information better, as well as make them healthier. My classroom aims to promote learning and lifelong fitness, to improve a child's life.

We, as a nation, are becoming increasingly unhealthy; diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are becoming major epidemics with our kids and they are all preventable and controllable.

Our kids need to get active. We need to help them change their lifestyles! My students are Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. They attend an inner city elementary school. They are great students and love physical education. My students love to move and always enjoy the activities I do with them.

My Project

My students need yoga mats to properly perform yoga activities in physical education class. Yoga has been shown to have many health enhancing and stress reducing effects. Additionally, yoga can be an opportunity for my students to practice mindfulness and breathing techniques and apply those skills throughout their day.

My students need healthy techniques to help manage stress and enhance their health, and yoga provides that.

These yoga mats will be used for students to perform yoga poses comfortably and safely during physical education class as both independent and group activities. Introducing them to yoga provides my students another way that they can enhance their lifetime fitness.
