If you think PE class is just a time to run around and play on the playground - think again. Just like the rest of our school, PE teachers are working hard to implement standards based learning and that means that every lesson has a clear learning target around which the lesson is based.
Right now our K-5 PE teachers - Jude Olson, Mary Nelson and Alan Mihan have our Kindergarten, First and Second Graders working on SHAPE Standard #2. We are finishing up our basketball unit using our dribbling skills to "travel" around the gym spelling our names and classroom sight words.
The sight words were posted on the wall so as to keep their heads up dribbling. To differentiate for memory there were also words on the floor to have better memory of the spelling while looking for letters.
Thanks to Jude Olson for sharing these pictures and the story! Keep moving everyone.
