Welcome to the wonderful world of Physical Education (PE). We get physical in our daily activities, which includes fitness and fun!! Your child will have PE every day for 30 minutes. All I ask is that your child participates fully, and gives their best effort. Sometimes the things we do are difficult, but never impossible. My goal is to set forth challenges that will help your child to grow and learn more about becoming physically fit.
In the month of September we will start the month with our fitness testing.This will be a Pre-Test. We will be testing five components ¼ mile run, shuttle run, sit-ups, push-ups and sit and reach.We will Post-test our students at the end of the year. The comparison of the two tests will show your child’s growth in the five components tested.In the middle of the month we will start our manipulative Unit.In this unit your student will be working with scarves, beanbags, ribbon wands, and hoops.Your student will be working independently and with partners.
I look forward to meeting and spending time with your child each and every day. If you have any questions, or concerns please don't hesitate to call me at 352-259-7700352-259-7700. or email Torrey.Howard@tvcs.org
