Remote Learning in P.E.
Remote Learning/Movement for P.E.
A regular P.E. class is forty minutes every other day. Please move your body everyday, perhaps as a break from academic work or simply because IT’S FUN! Below you will find ideas/plans of activities and exercises you and/or your family can do and enjoy.
ALL grade levels should participate in Just Dance on YouTube, if internet access allows. Search your favorites, this is something that my family greatly enjoys doing together.
K-1 Utilize GoNoodle they have great brain breaks/dances. Check out Blazer Fresh (one of my favorites). If you do not have a GoNoodle account, search it on YouTube.
2-5 Search any of your favorite dances from the dance unit as they are all on YouTube when you search “Just Dance” and they are adding more modern (Top 40) dances frequently.
If you do not have internet access or a device there are many things you can do to be active and use your brain.
1. Perform one of our regular warm-up routines in your house, garage or outside (weather permitting). The warmup should include 4 locomotor movements which you do for 2 minutes (run, jump, skip, hop, shuffle, walk, jog). Also, choose 6 of our body weight compound movement exercises, just like in class (push-ups, star jumps, jumping jacks, rocket jumps, squats, burpees, skater leaps, etc...) and do each for 30 seconds. If you don’t have a timer, do 20 of each exercise or just DO YOUR BEST! Teach or perform the exercises with your family!
2. Play a fun tag game. We have done many but some examples are: freeze tag, red rover, star wars tag, rock, paper, scissors tag, turtle tag, etc... If you are playing inside your house, modify the tag game by making up rules such as everyone must walk, or everyone must crawl or crab walk. Have fun with it. Other great options for inside or outside is to play hide and seek or Capture the Flag/Chicken.
3. Spend some time participating or practicing sport skills. Kick a soccer ball, play basketball, throw a football or baseball, all of these can be done with a partner of individually. If you aren’t interested in sports find an object to toss into the air and practice catching it. Or blowup a balloon and see how many times you can hit it in the air without letting it hit the ground. Or find a few lighter objects to juggle and practice juggling, start with 2 objects then work your way up to 3. All of these will help your hand-eye coordination.
4. BE CREATIVE-some examples are: Create a game of your own, with your own rules and equipment. This is one of my favorite things to do. Give yourself a set amount of time (1-2 minutes) to collect equipment around your house or yard and begin creating the game. Create an obstacle course within nature or using nature, tree branches, etc.. You can also create a simple obstacle course in your house as well. Ask your parent’s permission first. When the obstacle course is complete have somebody time you to see how fast you can go! Or compete against other people in your house.
Please choose 2 or 3 options every other day and have fun with them. Keep in mind what you did and if you created any awesome games! I would love to hear about it and I can’t wait to hear about all the fun you had.
Be safe and please let me know if you have any questions!
