Update on 4th&5th Physical Education

November 3, 2020 | Zachary Licato

For the 4th and 5th grade physical education in this hybrid form, the goal will be to continue to create content that expresses their physical prowess and creates students who are curious about developing lifelong active lifestyles. They have been sending feedback on workouts they enjoy and ways to improve their form. The workouts are beginning to focus on specific muscle groups and stretching routines.  

It is crucial to their development within the classroom and outside to find ways to stay active. I will continue to create videos ranging from HIT (High Intensity Interval Training), to stretching and strength building exercises. I am encouraged by the connections and suggestions the 4th and 5th graders are making with the videos. Students will continue to be able to pick what they want from the videos and “choose their own adventure.” I will be the guide on this adventure. This will allow them to actively participate and engage in the content in a meaningful way.
