WELCOME! I am so excited about getting to know your child and sharing all the fun things we are going to experience during their daily Physical Education! Thanks so much to all those parents, grandparents and guardians that came down to meet and greet all of the Special Area Teachers on "Orientation Day".
I want to welcome you to the wonderful world of Physical Education (PE). We do get physical in our daily activities, which include both fitness and fun!! Your child will be active with us every day for 30 minutes, with the exception of the first couple of days in which we will be introducing our daily rules and procedures. Sometimes the things we do are difficult, but never impossible. My goal is to set forth challenges that will help your child to grow in their knowledge and experience of both health and fitness.
In the month of August, we will focus on learning rules and class procedures in the “Building a Foundation Unit”. In this unit we will teach personal space, general space, loco-motor skills, pathways, tempos and creative movement. Cooperation is a big part of almost every lesson, but is introduced in this first Unit. The students will learn by working individually, with partners and within groups.
The SPARK curriculum is used here at the Primary Center and you can see an overview of what lessons we will be covering for the week on Monday of the calendar below.
Students are required to wear sneakers (athletic shoes) every day to school, so parents please check the PDF file on shoe lace tying. It might be helpful.
Thanks so much for coming to my website and for allowing me to teach your child. I enjoy the time we spend together because they are just AWESOME KIDS!!!
