Physical Education

PREKINDERGARTEN PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Prekindergarten Physical Education is centered on spacial awareness, basic motor skills, working together, personal involvement in the activities and fun. We stress the importance of teamwork, locomotor skills, and practice healthy exercise. The difficulty level of the class increases as the children feel more comfortable in the environment and as the year progresses.

KINDERGARTEN - 2ND GRADE PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Physical Education classes meet twice a cycle throughout the school year. Children in kindergarten through 2nd grades participate in activities that develop the child’s basic locomotor skills. These skills are built into the many activities in which they participate everyday. Social skills, such as the ability to get along with others, working together to achieve a goal, cooperation and sportsmanship are all part of physical education for these grades.

3RD - 5TH GRADE PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Physical Education classes meet twice a cycle throughout the school year. Children in grades 3 through 5 participate in many lead-up games geared towards team sports. These children learn the value of sportsmanship, being a teammate, and working together as a team. This is when the children begin to develop strategic thinking when participating. Cooperative activities involving problem-solving skills are also introduced.
