Soccer was also introduced where we learned and practiced the skills of dribbling and kicking with movement activities called the Fox and The Hound and Pirates.

K-2nd grade students were exposed to activities that encourage helping and getting into groups. These students also started to manipulate poly spots into fun exercises. They also played a game call "Freeze" where students are encouraged to help and say please and thank you!!

This week the 3rd-8th grade students were exposed to some team building and classroom community activities. Here students are learning each others names in an activity that is both fun and educational.


During the first week of school, Fairview students were introduced to the classroom expectations and procedures. As always, I incorporated some movement activities while we learned the classroom protocols. Also, this year I'm looking to upgrade all my music from tapes and cd's to an ipod. I would like to upgrade all my music and go completely digital. I'm also looking to upgrade the music play selections. If you have any music that you would like to hear during your physical education class, please bring a CD with your music and I will download it onto my ipod. Exercising to music is a great way to keep motivated. And it's just plain more fun. KEEP MOVING!!!!!!!!
