Elementary P.E. is important to develop activity patterns and skills that will be carried into adulthood. It also promotes regular physical activity that is beneficial for overall health and well-being. Positive experiences in physical activity are important in childhood to carry into adulthood. Our P.E. classes consist of basic information regarding exercise and the effects of exercise on the body. It will also cover the basic movement skills (skipping, hopping, jumping, throwing, kicking….) along with complex movement skills and how to apply them during games and sports performance. We accomplish this using a skills themed approach that emphasizes a developmentally appropriate sequence of skills. This style of teaching benefits the students by emphasizing skill acquisition through pacing that is consistent with the developmental age rather than the chronological age of the student. In addition, fitness and wellness concepts are imbedded into all lessons, as many activities involve aerobic capacity and other health-related components.
