I work in Glendale Elementary School District. I teach Health and Physical Education to K-8 students. Total population of the school is about 800 students with almost 100% being on reduced/free lunch program. My students work hard and enjoy their health/physical education class. Middle school school students only have PE 1-2 times per week, whereas my K-3 classes are on a three week rotation. This means I will have four specific classes for three weeks straight, and then they will rotate and I will get another set of four different classes for the next three weeks.
I have been told I am their favorite special and love coming to PE class.
These students are special in their own ways and have their own personalities and abilities. I try and make PE special for them and engage them in activities they have never played or participated in before, and it works to my benefit because they have loved everything we have done in class so far.
I concentrate on fitness games and activities and would love to expand on the fitness part of my classes.
Weights, balance balls, medicine balls and aerobic steps are just what the students need to experience fitness circuits in PE class! Each piece of equipment can be used in a station to help improve their overall level of fitness.
No matter age, grade level, or fitness ability, my students will be able to feel successful and confident not just in PE class but in the classroom, on the athletic field, and outside of school.
Students will engage in fitness stations and circuits to improve their overall physical health along with mental health in the classroom. Physical and mental go hand in hand!
