My Students

My first grade students attend an inner-city school in Southern California. The students live in a low socioeconomic community. Gangs, crime, and violence are commonplace. They receive free breakfast and lunch at school. They are excited to be in first grade and learn new things.

They have unlimited amounts of energy on a daily basis.

We enjoy putting that energy to good use in the form of P.E. I think Tennis Tuesday is their favorite activity. My class largely consists of English Language Learners. This is also true for our school. I would describe our school as a place for educating the whole child.

Our main priority is academics, of course, but in a fun and engaging way. We set high expectations and strive to meet the needs of all students. My school focuses on the 3R's: Relationship, Rigor, and Relevance. We love our students and only want the best for them.

My Project

These materials will bring health and wellness to our classroom. Yoga is an activity that all of my students can participate in.

Physical activity is an important part of life.

In order for students to achieve academically they should be fit physically. The two go hand in hand with one another. I am requesting sets of yoga cards, books and mats.

In our classroom library, there is a book with yoga poses in it and it is entertaining, to say the least, to see the students performing the poses. With these materials, more students can participate outside in a safe manner. The students in my class love P.E. and these new yoga activities will keep them engaged and excited about living a healthy lifestyle and having fun.
