Parents, (For Your Information)
Warm up and Cool downs last around 5 min each. All of the activities follow the Gold Medal Standards. See… http://health.utah.gov/obesity/gms/criteria.html
Incentives: The children will work to be respectful, be responsible and be safe during P.E. class (Big 3), by doing this five consecutive weeks in a row, the children will earn a free choice in P.E. Class and chose any activity they would like to do during P.E. time.
Taking a break: The children may choose to take a break for themselves, or the teacher may chose for them. If you “Take a Break” you will walk around the outside of the play area and cool down and calm down. Children will be asked to come back to the game when ready.
No Sitting out: No child will be “Out” of a game, and asked to sit down. For example if a child gets tagged they will have to do five jumping jacks and they are back in the game. Every child will get maximum physical activity during P.E. class!
Example of a P.E. Class: Every class begins with a warm-up, which may be stretching, yoga, muscle work, running, or a game. Then a skill or lesson will be learned, followed by practice. Following the skill or lesson, we will go into a group game or motivation collaboration, this is to get everyone back and united. Ending with a cool down, witch includes stretching, breathing, calming down, and chatting.
Tracking Miles or Walk Across America: Because we are a Gold Medal School, the entire school will track the activities done during P.E. and be converted into miles. The students will pick a place to walk, run, jump, or skip to during the year, while tracking it on a map and hopefully we will reach our destination by the end of the year.
5K Event: The entire year the students will be preparing for the 5K event that falls in May. The older students will learn how to run longer distances and learn when to rest or walk. It is an amazing event that supports our school, in order to get things such as new math programs, leveled reading books, computer equipment, and so on. We would love to make this a school wide event. There will be more information provided closer to the event day.
Things Needed: If you have some sports equipment in your garage and are looking to clean out… I would love to teach badminton and ping pong this year, but do not have the supplies. Also needed are some swim noodles, beach balls, stretchy muscle bands, and any size foam or soft ball that do not hurt if you get hit.
