WHOLE BODY HEALTH AND FITNESS Physical Education Clipart Free Clip Art Images

Our Lady of Guadalupe P.E. classes are held in the gym. We also take advantage of the field, tennis courts and our blacktop during good weather. P.E. classes are modified according to where we are located as there are some games that really require four walls!

P.E. classes are another outlet to commit ourselves to celebrate differences, promote communication and self expression, and to foster gospel values. All classes contain a cooperative game or activity to encourage inclusion and community.

 

P.E. Distance Learning will be taking place over weekly LIVE Zoom classes, activities & movements students can follow and health related projects. 

 

Grades K-2

 P.E. LIVE classes will be on Fridays. Teachers will also receive a link to a different weekly activity, to use during class time, another day during the week. Be ready to move, shake out some wiggles, be silly and have FUN.  Please make sure your child wears comfortable clothing they can easily move in and appropriate shoes for support (please, no boots, flats, backless or heeled shoes). Students will need a little open space to move freely and have a water bottle handy. We will be focusing on basic body movements by using games and short circuit workouts. Our main goals are to learn to move our bodies safely and have FUN!!

Grades 3-5

P.E. LIVE classes will be on Fridays. Teachers will also receive a link to a different weekly activity, to use during class time, another day during the week. Get ready to move, shake out some wiggles, be silly and have FUN.  Please make sure your child wears comfortable clothing they can easily move in and appropriate shoes for support (please, no boots, flats, backless or heeled shoes). Students will need a little open space to move freely and have a water bottle handy. We will be focusing on body movements (squats, lunges, jumping jacks, balancing on one leg, freeze moves, etc.), by using games, circuit workouts, and stretching. Our main goals are to learn to move our bodies safely, burn some energy and have FUN!!

 

Middle School P.E. (Grades 6-8)

P.E. will be focusing on taking care of our “Whole Bodies” while having fun and moving. We will be combining HIIT (high intensity interval training), stretching, nutrition, and meditation. Students will be filling out weekly Gratitude Journals and keeping daily Sleep/Activity/Water Consumption Journals. During Live classes students are expected to participate fully, be dressed to move (comfortable/appropriate clothing) and wear supportive shoes (no boots, flats, backless, heels or flip flops). Students need to have a water bottle on hand, a little open space and be ready to participate. Focus is to move, not worry about what others are doing or how silly we all may look! One project we will work on this trimester is Cultural Fitness. We will research World Cultures and how they incorporate fitness.
