“I witnessed your Noodle presentation” (recently). (After the conference), “I proceeded to perform some of the games/activities you had presented complete with rules (like 'put the noodle under your arm' when I was explaining or collecting them) and I wish to let you know my students were "ecstatic" about working with them.” “When working with my students and these noodles even on the basketball court, it was glaringly apparent each child was experiencing the many different P.E. skills I taught while having fun.”
“In addition, please be advised that my Kindergarten plus First Grade students were actively devising ways to use the noodles plus pucks for balance and coordination activities on their own when given the chance to work with them.”
“In conclusion, I feel what you have done here with this concept of using such a simple tool as pool noodles has "hit the mark" of what we all try to do as P.E. educators with attempting to create the best possible learning environments/outcomes for our students.”
Anonymous***Hope you enjoyed that email selection as much as I did. I am always pleased to hear that my presentations have had an impact on physical education classes. If anyone else has experiences to share, I would love to get them.
