Lesson: Volleyball

Skill Description: The motor skill involves two teams hitting a volleyball back and forth over a net without letting the ball hit the floor. Which ever team lets the ball hit the floor loses the point. Games are to 25 points, and only three touches on the ball are allowed per side before it has to be sent over the net. This game is worthy of teaching fourth graders because it teaches them about teamwork, quick thinking, communication, cooperation, etc. Teamwork and cooperation correlate with volleyball because in order to play the game you must play as a team; one person cannot win the game, therefore cooperation is needed. Quick thinking and decision making is also very important in the game because a player only has a

16-24 mins: Fitness Activity: Students will be asked to split up into their partners from the day before and grab a ball. One student will be on one side of the net serving, while the other student is on the opposite side shagging their partners ball. The goal is to have each student practice hitting the ball over the net. After four minutes, the partners will switch sides and roles and continue serving for the last four minutes.
25-34 mins: Closing Activity: the closing activity will be playing a game of volleyball. Of course, this will be a modified version of volleyball to make it easier on the students. There will be an unlimited amount of hits allowed, and two chances at serving, (i.e. if a student misses their first serve they are given another chance to get the ball over the net), and we will not keep score. This game will allow the students to put their newly learned skills to practice and have a chance to showcase them in a “game” setting.

35-42 mins: Clean up/Line up

Concerns/Problems:
My first concern would be that the ball is too hard to hit and that the students don’t have the strength yet to get the ball over the net. To fix this issue, the “volleyballs” that the students will be using are beach balls. Beach balls are light weight and easier to hit
My second concern would be that the volleyball net would be too high for the students. In order to accompany their needs, I would use badminton nets instead because they are lower. So, when I refer to “volleyball nets” I am actually referring to the badminton nets. This should ease up the game for the students, and allow for several nets to be put up in the gym (three nets is my goal).
My last concern is that the ball may hit the floor too often still because these students are beginners. To fix this issue, I would allow ten players on each side instead of just six. Since this may cause confusion when rotating comes into play, I will instruct when everyone should rotate so I am able to direct students where to go, and whose turn it is to sit

    Sydney honestly didn’t think she could’ve got that much better, but she invited Brynn over to show her what she worked on and got better at. Sydney gave Brynn the ball right when Brynn got there and Brynn started at the 3 point line.”We never practiced 3 pointers I thought”, Sydney questioned Brynn. “ We didn’t, but I did”, Brynn replied. Brynn shot it and made it and Sydney thought it was probably luck, but Brynn made her next one too. Brynn was making almost everything so Sydney challenged Brynn to 1 on 1 game to 21 points.…

    Once I was playing volleyball with my juniors, one of them came to me and said “You are really good at Volleyball but I am not. “ I replied, “My brother you just do not need to be that smart, that tall to play volleyball but what matters is how seriously are you going to take the Volleyball game. “ Next time he came to me and said,” I want to master the skills as you did, how can I do that?” I trained him but I didnt train him physically I helped him develop a mentality that life is full of ups and downs and you always need to be prepared for it just like when opponent spikes the ball , you need to be prerpared to dig it up . Through lessons like that he learned not to take volleyball just as a sport but as an aspect of life…

    The participants will not know the number that will be called. The two kids that will be called will have to rush to the half court, take a ball then dribble it back going to their baseline. The first kid to shoot is the "winner". One more way to make this drill more competitive is to place only one ball at half court. The kid who will not able to get the ball will play defense against the one who dribbles and shoots.…

    One of the main reasons as to why my motivation transitioned to wanting the children to succeed is due to my coaching experience in volleyball. Teaching the children the manipulative motor skills reminded me of when I would have to teach manipulative motor skills used in volleyball to my athletes. I would find joy seeing my athletes release excitement when they would successfully perform the movement. As the semester progressed, I would find the same joy when the children would show excitement when succeeding at the movement. Such as, when we implemented our catching activity, one of the children Jovanny, showed excitement when he was able catch the ball repetitively.…

    High school sports are beneficial to a students’ education in that they teach time management, develop social skills, and improve a students’ grades. High school sports teach time management in many ways. For example, “If you know you’ll miss class/test or assignment because of sports, talk with your teacher earlier rather than later to ensure you cover all of your academic bases,” (Keeping). Sometimes students must leave early for a sport and may miss a class. Teachers will not chase those students around trying to figure out what work they have missed, it is up to the student to make up the work.…

    So what will I do to make this a possibility for countless students anticipating basketball in their middle school lives? To kick start things I will make a survey asking the opinions of the parents in my local school district, Adams 12 about their opinions on middle school basketball. When I receive this data I will discuss the numbers with the school board and make a pi chart of parents who want middle school basketball in America. I will discuss the uniforms and even discuss affordable rates for parents to send their students to the team. In a matter of time I hope to have most middle schools in the nation on board with my idea.…

    Alaura and Lexi were very creative and unique with the activities that were presented to us. For example my favorite was trying to hit the volleyball into the hula-hoop or on a poly-circle. This allowed me to practice form and control, but yet have a target to hit. In the activity we were able to challenge a partner on who can get the most points and it is a fun activity and I think third graders would benefit from this activity. One thing I would change in the activity are using softer volleyballs.…
