Physical Education

January 18, 2023 | Rebekah Lowe

Physical Education is of vital importance for our 2nd and 3rd grade. Because of that, we aim to create an environment that fosters strong emotional and trusting bonds among the students within the Mustard Seed community. We also hope to create a place where they may express their emotions and physical ability in a myriad of ways. In physical education class we try to create a safe space where students can be active in the information they are receiving. We practice every class on different types of movements and athletic abilities. We allow time during and after to debrief and discuss what was challenging and where we need to improve.  It is my goal for them to be actively engaged in their understanding of how their bodies move. It is vital for them to begin to trust their movements to create the desired outcome during activities. This can be done in many ways and in the best way that fits the individual needs of the student. 

  • Making connections.
  • Recreating information.
  • Active – doing something with the information.
  • Reflecting at a conscious level.

The goal is to create content that expresses their physical prowess and creates students who are curious about developing lifelong active lifestyles. It is crucial to their development within the classroom and outside to find ways to stay active. 

As we begin the new year, we will begin to play more challenging games that require combining some of the skills they have learned as well as problem solving new tasks.

Teacher, Grades 2&3

Rebekah Lowe knew that she wanted to be a teacher ever since middle school when she was inspired by an English teacher who developed interactive games and creative acronyms for many of the topics that were discussed. Because of her teachers, Ms. Lowe attended the education program at the College of New Jersey, where she experienced a variety of classroom environments, and earned a teaching degree. She was also a part of the Education Honor Society. After graduating, Ms. Lowe taught English in South Korea, and during this time, she was able to travel around Asia and experience new cuisines and cultures. Her love of travelling increased, and she hopes to travel more in the future! She began her teaching career in the United States at Mustard Seed School in 2018 as a second and third grade teacher in the Meadows class. She’s excited to be a part of the school community and share her many experiences with her students.
