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 "Building a Foundation" unit and are moving on to our "Manipulatives" unit. Throughout this unit students will be introduced to many different types of equipment including: scarves, bean bags, fluff balls, hoops, and ribbon wands. Students will learn how to work with the manipulatives in a safe manner and will learn to keep themselves as well as their manipulatives under control. 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.
