APRIL, MAY, AND JUNE in P.E. Class!
Units: TUMBLING, THE MILE JOG, FITNESS TESTING/Movin' and Groovin' Results
Students will learn three basic components of tumbling/gymnastics: Balance, Roll, Transfer of Weight.
After practicing each skill, students in grades 1-5 will be required to work with a group of friends of choice (or independently), and complete a routine, or presentation to the entire class.
The following must be included in the routine for the following evaluations:
1 = Does not have at least 2 of each type of tumbling tricks in presentation; not creative; has to talk to group members throughout
2 = Has 2 of each type of tumbling tricks in presentation; somewhat creative; some talking to group members
3 = Has 3 or more of each type of tumbling tricks in presentation; very creative; does not talk with group members
4 = Has 4 or more of each type of tumbling tricks in presentation; above and beyond with creativity; no talking with group
Students will be allowed to select a school appropriate song that Mrs. P. has in her music collection to perform the presentation to. Again, it will be in front of the entire class, so be PREPARED!
THE MILE JOG
Students will have two or more practices of running on the track as a lead up to The Mile Jog Evaluation.
The students have been encouraged all year, and will be reminded to beat their time from the fall.
The following is the rubric in which students earn their grade in this Mile Jog Evaluation.
1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade:
4 = 10 minutes or less (10 Points)
3 = 10:01 – 14:00 minutes (10:01-12:00 is 9 Points) (12:01-14:00 is 8 Points)
2 = 14:01 – 18:00 minutes (7 Points)
1=18:01 +(6 Points)
4th and 5th Grade:
4 = 9 minutes or less (10 Points)
3 = 9:01 – 13:00 minutes (9:01-11:00 is 9 Points) (11:01-13:00 is 8 Points)
2 = 13:01 – 17:00 minutes (7 Points)
1=17:00 +(6 Points)
Kindergarten will jog/walk a half mile during this time to prepare for the mile next year as a 1st grader.
Students will complete their P.E. Portfolios for the 2018/2019 school year. They will complete the following:
The Mile Jog (walk)
Sit and Reach
This year's theme in P.E. is: MOVIN' and GROOVIN'!
Our focus will be on the 3 Types of Exercise: Muscular Strength, Aerobic Endurance, and Flexibility. With that, students in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will be tracking their performance in these areas in their P.E. Portfolios, using the standards from FITNESSGRAM. We will be practicing jogging (running endurance) every month, to improve our Mile Jog score from Fall to Spring. We will be working on our techniques in the Push Up and Curl Up every month, trying to increase our performance. Finally, we will be doing the Sit and Reach each month to further our stretch and flexibility. Our goal will be to improve each time, but especially from Pre to Post Test, or Fall to Spring results. I know we will get better each time!
Grading in P.E. Class
Kindergarten NOT graded in Specials Classes
Students can earn the following scores:
4 = Exemplary
3 = Proficient
2 = Partially Proficient
1 = Not Proficient
Students are graded on each skill that we complete in class, and for the report card,
are also graded on Effort and Violet's Lifeskills.
Students have two Target Goals in every P.E. class to accomplish, along with learning the importance of our LIFESKILLS, Lifelong Guidelines, and The 7 Habits of Happy Kids. These social aspects are just as important as the motor and sports skills learned in Physical Education class, as our students learn to be a responsible, caring All Stars!
I am SO EXCITED to be your child's/children's Physical Education Teacher!
