Physical Education Guidelines
We will be focusing on multiple different movements and activities through out the school year. The units that we will cover this year for middle school students consist of Badminton, Pickleball, Floor Hockey, Basketball, Flag Football, Ultimate Frisbee, 3 Fitness Test, Wiffleball. I might add or subtract a couple of these units through out the school year. The younger students are going to be participating in Catching and Throwing Unit, Cooperative Learning Unit, Kicking and Punting Unit, Locomotor skill Unit, Space Awareness Unit, Floor Hockey, Indoor soccer, and 3 fitness test. Again, some of these units will be added or subtracted by the end of the school year. At the end of each unit for grades 3 through 8, students will be taking a quiz about the previous unit learned. Most of the 5 question quizzes will consist of performance cues that we learn along with game play strategies. Students will be well aware to when each unit will end.
The 3 fitness test are connected with each other. Students must improve from the previous fitness test to get a high grade. Students will be tested on the 4 different fitness components: Muscular Endurance (Sit-ups), Muscular Strength (Push- Ups), Flexibility (Sit and Reach), and Cardio Respiratory Endurance (PACER test).
