TK/K: We are working on moving our bodies in different ways (gallop, side step, skip) while playing various tag games. We are also exploring the use of many different types of equipment (hula-hoops, bouncy balls, beanbags).
1st-3rd Grades: We are beginning our underhand rolling and tossing unit. We'll work with partners and small groups to learn and perform activities and games that reinforce these essential movements.
4th Grade: Ms. Sargent is incorporating games that emphasize teamwork and throwing skills.
5th Grade: We will continue to refine our jumping skills through jump rope games and plyometric practice.
Remember to dress in warm, comfortable clothes and shoes that you can move in. Students can bring a water bottle, hat, and sunglasses to P.E..
On hot, smokey, or rainy days, we will be inside. We usually go to the stage, but we may also use a classroom. While inside I may implement nutrition, science (the human body), and team building activities. These aid our students in increasing their health education knowledge and social skills. We may also exercise to DVD's and CD's. These help our students in utilizing their visual and auditory learning skills.
