Physical Education

In K-2nd grades, we work on personal and general space; safety; locomotion skills through games and activities; and hand-eye coordination using beanbags, yarn balls, balloons, beach balls, bouncy balls, and may other manipulatives such as parachutes, jump rope, juggling with scarves, and scooter activities. We also do rhythms and creative movement, fitness, tumbling, and many partner & tag games.

In 4th and 5th grades, we start out with cooperative games and activities. Usually my curriculum involves learning the basic fundamental skills of many sports including flag football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, tennis or badminton, softball and sometimes, handball or lacrosse. I do many lead-up games and try to do the real games as much as possible. Rhythms and gymnastics, track and field, and other small lesson units give the less sport- minded an opportunity to enjoy or excel in something else.

For 6th-8th graders, I follow the same curriculum but stress a little more strategy and game play in their sports.

I test the students' fitness skills in the spring and conduct a field day for the school at the end of the year.

- Mrs. Hug, Physical Education Teacher
