Hope that your student's school year has been fabulous!
We are excited about the activities that we will be introducing your child to, that come from the PE curriculum called SPARK. Within this curriculum, there are many units that build one upon the other. The main thing that we expect of all of our students is that they give us their BEST EFFORT every day and show us their BEST SPORTSMANSHIP!!!
During the month of September we are in our Fitness Challenge Unit as well as the Manipulative Unit. Students will continue to follow our rules and procedures and will practice and use the main locomotor movements such as walking, running, hopping, jumping, skipping, leaping, galloping, and side-sliding. Our students had a Pre-Test on all 5 of the Fitness Components and we expect each student to be inspired to practice those fitness components both at school and at home so that they will see improvement in their scores when we complete the post test in March or April. We followed the Fitness Challenge will be our Manipulatives Unit which includes the use of scarves, bean bags, ribbon wands, fluff balls and hoops.
When looking at the assignment calendar below, note that I usually place the weeks lessons/activities under MONDAY. Thanks for looking!
Please consider "Go Noodle" as part of your family activity time. It is an internet based program with numerous guided physical activities for you and your family to do together! Try it, your child eill be experiencing it in their Physical Education classes. Here is the link that will take you to the sign up page.
Just a little reminder that students are required to wear proper fitting sneakers (athletic shoes) every day to school since they have PE every day so remember that what is tied in a bow, may come out of a bow, so shoe tying is something they will need to practice often in order for them to become successful. Should you choos to use it, there is a PDF file on shoe lace tying in case you would like to use it as a resource to help your child in learning to tie a bow.
Thanks so much for coming to my website. I look forward to the time that I will be able to spend with your child!
LET'S GET PHYSICAL!!!
