Welcome to physical education at The Villages Charter School. This year I will be working at both the Primary Center and the Intermediate Center where your child will reach new heights in the world of physical education.
Primary Center: We are finishing the month of September and beginning October with the final days of our Manipulatives unit. Students have worked with many different items including beanbags, scarves, yarn balls, ribbon wands, and hula hoops. During the second week in October we will be beginning out Balance, Stunts, and Tumbling unit during which students will learn about spatial awareness, enjoyment of movement, body part balances, stunts, and flexibility!
Intermediate Center: We are entering October in a brand new unit of net games. During this unit students will learn both overhand and underhand volleying, serving, and the general rules of net games. They will participate in games such as Newcomb Volleyball, Beach Volleyball, and Bounce Ball. We will also be applying more of a focus on fitness and adding "Fitness Days" into our week, these days will focus on increasing a students strength and endurance as well as teach them how to live a healthy lifestyle!
