Goal

To incorporate 36 inch oversized fun balls into our school activities before school, during school in physical education or during a school-wide event to build positive school culture.  

 

What will be done with my students

Omnikin Ultraballs are built for school use and contain a tough nylon fabric shell that is waterproof and abrasion resistant for long lasting use indoors or out. This is important as quality equipment that can withstand conditions in our outdoor P.E. classrooms in Collier County is hard to come by. This is a 36 inch 1 pound ball of fun. Think giant volleyball that can be safely thrown, bounced or kicked and used to create oversized variations of traditional games.
How utilized:
1. Before school fun- Two other teachers and myself supervise workout warriors every morning before school. Over 100 students join us for active fun. This oversized ball is fun to play group volleyball.
2. During Physical Education- Monster ball is a game to improve primary students' throwing skills and a load of fun. Group volleyball. During free skills explorations. Group soccer. Reward choice game time.
3. Staff verse 5th graders is a school wide event we will hold 4 times a year. This ball will be used for volleyball on one of those days.
4. PBS student option: positive behavior school wide reward days can utilize this fun ball as a student choice. 

 

Benefits to my students

This fun ball will help develop coordination and cooperation skills within a team environment and it will also promote group participation, critical thinking and strategy skills. Throwing, kicking and bouncing skills are also naturally improved.

The best benefit is it promotes smiles and fun. We had a similar ball in the past but it did not last due to poor quality. However, whenever it was in use, smiles were abundant and students want to participate.
This ball is expensive but it is durable and also has a replaceable bladder in it that is cheaper to replace in case it pops.  

 

Budget Narrative

The ball is $229.00 and shipping is 38.93
