P.E. (Physical Education)
I hope you all have a fun, safe, and active summer! :) Ms. B.
Week of 5/26-5/28
Here we are at our last week of school. I hope that you have enjoyed the activities that I have posted for you. I also hope that you've learned a lot of useful information that you can use throughout your life. I look forward to seeing all of you in August. : ) Ms. B.
Week of 5/17-5/21
Hello Foxes! How are you doing? I'm doing well. I've been doing outside chores and working out every day. Keeping busy is so important these days, so click on Activity Bingo and get busy! :) Ms. B.
Week of 5/11-5/15
Hi everybody! What's new? I hope you've found your favorite way to exercise by now. Your lessons are ready and waiting for you. Again this week, both lessons can be modified for any student. Primary students participating in the upper grade lesson should work at a slower pace, for less time, and with family members who are patient and encouraging as opposed to critical. Upper grade students can increase the difficulty and creativity of the primary lesson while always keeping safety in mind. Keep up the good attitudes and the hard work! :) Ms. B.
Week of 5/3-5/8
Hi Foxes, this week's lesson is for all grade levels. It's all about nutrition games this week! :) Ms. B.
Hi everybody! I hope you're having a good day! Wow, it's gotten hot lately. I feel like summer is coming fast this year. If you go outside, don't forget to wear sunscreen and drink water. Please remember that no matter what grade level you are in, you can participate in any lesson that I have posted. I strive to post lessons that your whole family can do. This week is no exception. So jump in, have fun, and get moving! Be well! :) Ms. B.
Week of 4/20-4/24
Hello my friends! Again this week, one lesson is for primary students (kindergarteners through 2nd graders), and one is for upper grade students (3rd-5th graders). Of course, households with multiple levels of students can do the activities together. Upper grade students would be expected to patiently and kindly guide their younger sibling "classmates" through their activities. Conversely, younger students should be given the opportunity to guide their older sibling "classmates" through their primary lesson. Follow the golden rule: treat each other the way you would like to be treated. Teach each other the way you would want to be taught. Now let's get to work! : ) Ms. B.
P.S. Primary students, start saving your empty paper towel rolls. You'll need them to create a "wand" for next week's lesson.
Week of 4/13-4/17
Hi Foxes! This week's lesson focuses on Skillastics. Skillastics is a whole class game that we play at school. It's a very active and fun game. This week we're gonna play the game at home. You will need to print out the game cards. If you don't have a printer, write the exercises down on different pieces of paper and keep your device open to the Skillastics page so you can see the pictures. Click on Skillastics to get started! E-mail me if you have any questions. Have fun! : ) Ms. B.
P.S. Don't forget to check out the updated nutrition, body, and health quiz questions.
Spring Break, Week of 4/6-4/10
Hello again! I hope everybody is feeling good, and keeping busy. I'm bike riding almost every day, and building my strength with kettlebells. Even though this week is Spring Break and you're not required to do any school work, I've put together some activities for you because you need to exercise every day (hopefully for 60 minutes)! So click on Spring Break to get moving today! : ) Ms. B.
Week of 3/30-4/3
Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I miss you, and I miss teaching you P.E.. That said, it's great to get back to P.E. business even if it's online. Change can be challenging, but it gives us new opportunities to succeed. So let's get on our new path to success!
Each week I will give you a lesson to complete sometime during the week. Students in grades K-2 should spend 60 minutes total (not all at once) during the week completing the lesson. Students in grades 4-5 only need to spend 30 minutes total during the week doing the lesson. HOWEVER, since we are all at home and need to get our energy out, please feel free to spend more time and/or days enjoying the lesson. Remember that you should be getting 60 minutes of exercise a day in order have a strong, healthy body and a positive attitude.
Your P.E. should proceed as follows: complete the warm-up, complete some or all of the P.E. lesson, then complete the cool down. The nutrition, body, and health sections are optional, and can be read and reread throughout the week. (What a great way to teach and quiz your parents!)
If you would like to explore more P.E. options, please visit the website section.
So find some space where you're living that is safe and uncluttered, make sure you have clothes on that you can move in, and drink some water when you need to. Remember, P.E. isn't perfect. Just do your best and have fun! : ) Ms. B.
P.S. A great, easy-to-follow book to create your own P.E. class at home is the Awesome Elementary School Physical Activities book by Cliff Carnes. It has neat illustrations that help to guide you through fun activities and games along with ideas for homemade P.E. equipment.
