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 are in our Parachute and Omnikin Unit. During this unit students will work with parachutes and Omnikin balls of various sizes. Games and activities will include: Chute Shapes, Move and Groove, Space Mountain, Shark Attatck and more! Goals for this unit will include cooperation, muscular endurance, enjoyment of movement, and response to cueing. 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 Flag Games Unit, students will learn offensive and defensive strategies in a variety of flag games including: Sharks and Minnows, Capture the Frisbee, Rubies and Diamonds, and Countries. 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.
