Weekly Update Dec. 7

PreK1. With winter performances this past week, PE had to make some adjustments but we were able to still have a lot of fun. Some classes were able to play with scooters and have fun with balls and hula hoops inside, while other classes had to move class outside and try different activities.

 

PreK2. With winter performances this past week, PE had to make some adjustments but we were able to still have a lot of fun. Some classes were able to play with scooters and have fun with balls and hula hoops inside, while other classes had to move class outside where we did other fun activities. In all classes we had some good talks about sharing and how we can share and play together with different equipment.

Kindergarten. This week, I introduced a new concept and style for teaching PE. It is called the Sports Education Model. In this model, students will be placed and participate with set teams for a long duration. The teams will be responsible for creating a team name and appointing some positions like coach and equipment manager. I will award points for actions I see being done well such as sportsmanship or being good listeners. This week, the students were tasked to come up with a team name as well take a team photo. In next weekly update, I will share what the students came up with.  I hope the students are as excited about this as I am.

 

Grade 1. We continued working on our ball skills in stations but not before we had a great scooter race! We broke the class into 5 teams, had 1 practice round and then it was off to the races. It was a close race that featured many smiles. The stations the students then participated in were dribbling, throwing and catching off the wall, gaga, and cone catch. These skills will help them in many sports and activities that we will play later in the year.
