PreK1. This week in PE we introduced two new things to the classes. First, we introduced music to the classroom. If the music is playing, we can play. If the music stops, we must stop and sit down. Music brings a fun and exciting element to PE. The second thing we did was begin using stations. Stations are different areas in the gym where you can do different things. Students must stay in that area for a certain amount time and then we can all switch. At the end of the class, all students will have been to each station. We used three stations this week which included: hurdles, mat play, and hula hoops. I look forward to using stations in more classes.
PreK2. We continued using stations this week. I like using stations because its a nice way for students to try and experiment in multiple areas in a single class. This weeks focus was balls. The four stations were: basketball, hitting a target, dribbling, and rolling toward a target.
Kindergarten. We started each class with some flexibility and core strengthening movements. We were doing movements such as bear crawls, wheelbarrows, and walking like giants. We then continued to progress with out underhand throwing skills. We played a game in which two teams were trying to knock down cones. The classes were fun and had competitive matches.
Grade 1. We started each class with some flexibility and core strengthening movements. We were doing movements such as bear crawls, wheelbarrows, and walking like giants. We then continued to progress with out overhand throwing skills. We played a game in which two teams were trying to knock down cones. The classes were fun and had competitive matches.
PreK1. We had a week of play. During half of the PE class, the students were able to free play. I set out a variety of equipment and let the students have fun doing whatever they chose to do. The equipment included hula hoops, balls, poly spots, hurdles, and mats. It was fun to see the students interact with each other as well as using their creative thinking skills to play.

Prek2. We continued with stations this week with an emphasis on moving over, through, and under objects. The students were asked to move their bodies in different ways that would allow them to be successful.

Kindergarten. We started all classes with a flexibility and core strengthening session. The students showed off their abilities in this area by holding planks, walking like soldiers, and even trying to put their legs behind their heads. We then worked on our underhand throwing where we had a class competition where the class worked together to achieve a score. To finish up class, the students reflected on the class.

Grade 1A. We started all classes with a flexibility and core strengthening session. The students showed off their abilities in this area by holding planks, walking like soldiers, and even trying to put their legs behind their heads. We also started playing a new game called Fireball. This is a throwing and catching game. Players will try and throw a soft ball at a selected player.
Here is a look into this past week.
PreK1. We were moving like animals! We moved across the gym like different animals such as frogs, chickens, alligators, and monkeys. Not only were they supposed to move like the animals but sound like them as well. It was a fun lesson that had me laughing.
PreK2. This was our second week playing with stations. We divided the gym into 4 stations with different equipment to play with. After a certain amount of time we all switch to the next station. The stations for this week were basketball, hula hoops, balls, and mat play.
Kindergarten. We are well into our Ball Skills- Hands Unit and we are progressing nicely. I introduced a new game call Clean the Garden. This is a game in which the students want to keep their side of the gym clean by throwing balls to the other teams side. We then played a game called Pin Guard. This is a game students will roll and throw balls to knock the other teams cones down.
Grade 1A. We continued with our ball skills unit and played games Pinguard and Prairie Dog. During these two games the students not only showed their progressions with throwing and catching but displayed great teamwork.
Hello! My name is Eric Repking and I am the PE teacher for Early Primary. I have had a wonderful time getting to know all of the students and having fun with them during my lessons. We have had a great start to the year filled with laughs and smiles. The students are showing great progress and I look forward to seeing their development each class. I will use this blog to show you what we are doing each week.I will try and update every Friday afternoon with a brief summary and a few pictures. I hope you enjoy the photos that will be coming.
