Welcome to the wonderful world of Physical Education (PE). We get physical in our daily activities, which includes fitness and fun!! Your child will have PE every day for 30 minutes. All I ask is that your child participates fully, and givestheir best effort. Sometimes the things we do are difficult, but never impossible. My goal is to set forth challenges that will help your child to grow and learn more about becoming physically fit.
In the month of September we will continue to focus on class procedures and the Unit we will focus on first is FITNESS! As with all the unit’s cooperation is a big part of every lesson. The students will continue to work individually, with partners and with groups as we make time for pre-testing each individual. There are five components of fitness in which each student will receive a grade. Cardio-respiritory fitness (1/4 mile run/jog), speed and agility (shuttle run), muscular endurance (sit-ups), muscular strength (military style push-ups), and flexibility (sit and reach-stretching).
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. There is a PDF file on shoe lace tying in case you would like to use it as a resource to help teach your child to tie a bow.
Thanks so much for coming to my website. I look forward to seeing all of you very, very soon!
