Physical Education September 18- September 22, 2017

 

EIGHTH GRADE: During this week, the students will work on developing the following fundamental skills of BASKETBALL: passing, dribbling, free throw, layups and shooting. Students will put this knowledge to test in games. One day a week we will have fitness testing

 

4 Purposes of Fitness Testing:

  1. Recognize current fitness-level
  2. Set realistic goals based on current level
  3. Learn how to become more fit and have fun doing it
  4. Reflect on goals and lifelong fitness intentions

There are many reasons to assess fitness testing, but not grade it.  We want students to value their fitness and their own personal results, but never to be graded by their scores. Instead of grading, we should focus on assessing students on demonstrating the value of it.

 

 

Required Materials for Class:  Tennis shoes, water bottle and appropriate clothing.

 

Optional Materials for Class:  Bug spray, hat and sunscreen.        

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: To participate in class activities and receive full credit for the class, students need to wear appropriate clothing for P.E. class.

 

GOALS: We will use the word RESPECT to set the main goals for the year.

 

Right to Learn – Every child has this right to be educated!

Effort – Win or lose, trying is the most important trait.

Safety – The number one priority each day!

Purpose – Understanding how the activity can benefit you.

Enthusiasm – Positive energy creates a positive environment!

Challenge – Challenge yourself to improve each day.

Trust/Teamwork – Work with and trust others, the result can be amazing!

 

REMINDER: I would like to remind you that all students need to be dressed appropriately for the days that they have P.E. class. Students should refrain from using the following:

–  Dresses for the girls

–  Jeans (shorts or pants)

–  Crocks

–  Sandals

–  Boots

 

RULES:

Have fun!

Candy, food, and/or gum – out of sight, out of mind!

Positive attitude!

Remain in supervised areas all the time!
