Welcome to physical education at The Villages Charter School. This year I will be working at both the Primary Center and the 4th and 5th Grade Center where your child will experience fitness and fun. Your child and I will work together to set goals and learn more about becoming physically fit. Students come to PE each day for 30 minutes.
Primary Center: At the primary center we have completed our "Manipulatives" unit and are moving on to our "Balance, Stunts, and Tumbling" unit. Throughout this unit students will be introduced to many different types of movement including: animal movements, balances, stunts, and rolls. Students will learn how to control their bodies in different ways by practicing different movements, poses, and balances. We will also continue to hold a focus on fitness and improving students muscular strenght, cardivascular endurance, speed, and agility.
4th and 5th Grade Center: At the 4th and 5th Grade center we are moving into our “Dance” unit. Students will learn line dances and creative dances to song such as: Cotton Eye Joe, Electric Slide, Mississippi Mud Slide, Cupid Shuffle, What Does the Fox Say, Cha Cha Slide, and MORE! Each week will consist of 2-3 days of skill related activities that are cohesive with our current unit, as well as 2 days of fitness.
