PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS!
January and February in P.E. Class!
Students will be participating in a Volleyball Unit where the skills of the Overhead Pass and Underhand Pass will be evaluated. The upper grades will also be working on the Underhand Serve. At first students work with a balloon and transfer over to trainer volleyballs. The volleyball net will be up and students will be working on these passes
over the net. 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders will be working in a volleyball game near the end of the unit,
with much variation in the game rules, specifically for success.
During the Volleyball Unit, we will begin Jump Rope Skills and then continue into a full blown Jump Rope Unit to take us to our wonderful day, Jump Rope for Heart. Many students will be chosen to actually perform in our very own Jump Rope Show on February 16th, at Jump Rope For Heart! This is a BIG deal for us, and the kids work so hard to learn new jump skills and perfect old ones. I teach the basic skills that involve individual, partner, and groups of people, and it is up to the students to use our resources (Mrs. P., posters, videos, and live performances from others) to excel their skill level in this outstanding activity that can stay with them into adulthood.
The HEART OF BECK Jump Rope Team will be coming to our school again this year on Tuesday, Janurary 24th. This team is an elementary school aged team, performing for elementary aged students. They are not professionals, and anything they perform, our Violet Kids feel that they can, and THEY CAN!
It is an outstanding, motivating assembly for all our Violet kids to see.
Our Roller Skating Unit was AMAZING!
All students improved so much and we had so much fun learning this lifelong skill of skating. I already cannot wait for next year! "Thank You" to all of the parents that donated their very precious time to help these young skaters become even better. A special shout out to Mrs. Merten for being there for every class throughout the unit!
Students also learn social skills in Physical Education through the LIFESKILLS, Lifelong Guidelines and the 7 Habits of Happy Kids in P.E. Class.
It's awesome to be a good athlete and know the skills,
but it is even BETTER to be a GREAT PERSON!
