WEEK #13

K4 thru 2nd grade this week started class with a great muscular endurance and cardiovascular song called The Jumping Jack Song. We then discussed all the awesome physical activity sports that people play, some that require us to strike an object with our body (basketball, soccer, etc.) and some where you use an object to strike the object (baseball, hockey, etc.). We got out the plastic candy canes I purchased at the dollar store and we practiced striking an object with another object and learned basic hockey striking skills. We then finished class playing a game called Hockey Tag!
3rd thru 8th grade this week started class with their 5 levels of fitness warm-up. This week we played Knockout, a fitness warm-up that incorporates all 5 levels of fitness. We then played a great lower body muscular strength and endurance game called Battle Ball where a cage ball was used.

Hi Michael,

I am a K-8 P.E. Teacher in my third year of teaching. We seem to have very similar ideas of what PE should involve! Love all of your posts. Do you have another website where you share more details about the games/activities your students participate in? I would love to use your ideas if you're willing to share! :)

Michael Beringer said...

Sure!!!! What activities are you interested in??

This is such a great idea. I will probably take some of these ideas and use them when I become a teacher. The song is a great way to build muscular endurance and connecting the discussion to sports and other physical activities is a really good idea because it makes the students interested.

Awesome! Well, I've read a lot of your posts, and I guess I'm just wondering where you get your game ideas from? My main source is pecentral- and whatever I can think of- but are there other websites or books you use as resources for lead-up or fitness games to any/all sports? Especially grades 3-4? I know that doesn't really narrow it down... but just looking for more options!! Thanks :)
