NOVEMBER/DECEMBER PE NEWS 2015

I attended the Fall 2015 New Hampshire AHPERD Conference in Waterville Valley in 
November.  This year’s conference focus was “A Sharp Mind, An Active Body, A Healthy
Person”.  At this conference I am always happy to meet with colleagues in the Physical 
Education and Coaching profession.  Here we collaborate and share ideas in teaching, 
technology, assessments, standards and physical activities.  I am amazed at the new 
technology used today in PE and how we can make our teaching better.  It is my hope that I can 
incorporate more technology into my lessons as I move into the 2016 year.

Students finished a unit in Catching and Throwing.  Students worked on the skill concepts of 
underhand throw, overhand throw, and catching using a variety of practice opportunities using
different sizes and shapes of balls.  The Common Core Shape America Standards include:

  • Kindergarten (S1.E13.K)  Throws underhand with opposite foot forward
  • First Grade  (S1.E13.1)  Throws underhand, demonstrating 2 of the 5 critical elements of a mature pattern
  • Second Grade  (SS1.E13.2)  Throws underhand using a mature pattern; (S1.E14.2) Throws overhand, demonstrating 2 of the 5 elements of a mature pattern
  • Third Grade  (S1.E13.3)   Throws underhand to a partner or target with reasonable accuracy;(S1.E14.3)  Throws overhand, demonstrating 3 of the 5 critical elements of a mature pattern, in non-dynamic environments (closed skills), for distance and/or force
  • Fourth Grade  (S1.E14.4a)  Throws overhand using a mature pattern in non-dynamic environments (closed skills); (S1E14.4b) Throws overhand to a partner or at a target with accuracy at a reasonable distance; (S1.E15.4)  Throws to a moving partner with reasonable accuracy in non-dynamic environment (closed skills)
  • Fifth Grade  (S1.E13.5a)  Throws underhand using a mature pattern in non-dynamic environments (closed skills), with different sizes and types of objects; (S1.E13.5b) Throws underhand to a large target with accuracy; (S1E14.5a)  Throws overhand using a mature pattern in non-dynamic environments (closed skills), with different sizes and types of objects; (S1.E14.5b)  Throws overhand to a large target with accuracy; (S1.E15.5a) Throws with accuracy, both partners moving; (S1.E15.5b) Throws with reasonable accuracy in dynamic, small-sided practice tasks 

PE classes have now moved on to basketball skills and manipulative skills.  We are currently 
working on the basketball dribble.  Many of the students are very good at this!!!  Please remember your child’s PE day and make sure sneakers are with them for class.  This is important for many of the activities that we do.  Jump Rope For Heart will take place during PE classes February 15-17. Jump Rope for Heart letters and envelopes will come out in January.

Have a healthy and active winter season!
