Physical Education for 4th and 5th grade, which meets twice every week, is a time when students work both individually and collectively to build their motor skills in movement, strategy, rules, safety (regarding others and equipment) and sportsmanship. Students receive grades in these areas: Participation & Skills as well as Teamwork & Sportsmanship. They have been doing a wonderful job with the basketball and running units. They participated in weekly timed runs where the focus was building cardiovascular endurance and core strength.
The students have been doing a great job of cooperating and developing their skills. As we move forward the focus will be on continuing to foster and build relationships. In addition, they will focus on more team centric activities. As always, there are options and variations to the class based on need and varying levels of comfort and skill.
