First Month of P.E. Class

 Hi everyone,
This is our "Star Chart" to keep track of positive behavior!

I am always glad when the first month of school is completed!  It means that I know all of my students (almost all 700 by name!) and the students know my expectations in P.E. class.  At this point I give the students a "test" on my procedures and if anyone does not pass the test, I re-teach them the procedure during the game time.  I am a stickler for using our time wisely in the gym and not wasting any of our minutes on behavior issues.  Almost ALL of the students past their "test" the first time.  They are very well behaved!  This allows us to have lots of fun, and use our time to exercise and play.

Below is a list of what the students "can do" so far.  I hope to take some videos soon so you can watch some of this in action! (Update - I just posted 2 videos at the bottom....)

  • Find my rainbow spot and do the Daily Dozen (How to enter the gym and start the warm-up)
  • Play "Hot Wheels" (Fitness Activity - walking or jogging around the gym safely in the correct "lanes")
  • Move safely in the gym / Spacial Awareness / Personal Space
  • Listen during instruction time
  • Freeze when I hear the whistle
  • Clean Up Nicely
  • Be a leader (I have started choosing a student leader each day for each class period)
SKILLS that students have practiced this month:
  • Playing safely with rhinoskin balls (Pre-K and Kindergarten)
  • Hula Hoops (PreK-1st)
  • Rolling a ball / Bowling
  • Defensive position 
  • Throwing and Catching (3rd-5th)
  • Moving safely while playing tag
  • Walking/Jogging/Stopping and weaving through bowling pins
  • 12 Basic exercises

This is a sample agenda.  We always have a warm-up, fitness activity, skills practice and game time.  All in a 27 minute session (twice per week)! 
I just took a video of our Daily Dozen Warm-Up and Center Activities.  See below!
