  • Physical Education Grades 2-5

    Grades Two through Five have begun to work on the underhand throw. I will mainly focus on the technique and trying to get the students to be consistent and accurate throwers. I will play a couple different games to apply this skill. Later in January, I will be using the traveling bowling kit to help refine this skill. The main differenence between the bowling and throwing will be the release point.

    Grades Four and Five are completing FitnessGram pre-testing. FitnessGram testing is based on national norms and will give each student a personalized report as to how they have done on each testing discipline compared to other students their age and body make-up. The test disciplines are Pacer (aerobic conditioning), curl-up, push-up, sit and reach, and height and weight. The students wil be taking their final tests in FitnessGram in late April/May.
