Welcome back to school everyone! I had a GREAT first week with my students. I love coming back to school. I feel so blessed that I chose PHYSICAL EDUCATION as my major in college. I always knew I wanted to become a teacher, and being in the gymnasium and/or ball field is where I love to spend my time! This is my 11th year teaching P.E. My goal is to provide a safe, positive, and nurturing learning environment for every student. I want them to feel as happy as I do when they are in P.E. class with me.
This year I work on Mondays and Wednesdays. So parents, if your child has P.E on Tues/Thurs/Fri they have Mrs. H this year. To all of my fellow P.E. teachers and parents who check my blog - thank you and please continue to check my blog, however I want to give you a heads up that I may not be posting as much as usual this semester as I am finishing up my Masters Degree. Please enter your email into the "subscribe" box on my blog and you will receive an automatic email when I update. I hope to update at least 1-2 times per month.
The first week of school I always begin by teaching the following:
1) Our Code of Cooperation (we have a school-wide code called "Central SHINES". It is wonderful to teach in a school that has a shared vision and code of cooperation. Every child knows what is expected of their behavior when they are here!
S - Shows Respect
H - Has Self-Control
I - Is Trustworthy
N - Never Gives Up
E - Engages in Learning
S - Stays Safe
2) SOPs - Standard Operating Procedures - every teacher in our building has established SOPs in their classroom. We have procedures in P.E. as well and I always teach these the first day and reinforce them throughout the year. When students follow procedures no time is wasted!
3) SPACIAL AWARENESS - All of my K-5th grade classes have a lesson on Spacial Awareness and how to move SAFELY in our space.
4) Games and Warm-Up Activity - I teach the same warm-up for the month of September (Move and Stretch / The "Train Game" for K-2), and we also make time for a few fun games. These fun games help us practice spacial awareness - Soap Bubbles Game, Tag, Builders and Bulldozers.
To all of the parents of my students - thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us. I am excited to be your child's P.E. teacher and I will do my very BEST to create a safe, positive, and nurturing learning environment for them!
