I am Mr. Profit, the new Health/PE teacher at Linwood Elementary School. We are off to a great start in our Health/Physical Education class. I am planning to bring a lot of fun and excitement to this class while the students learn about Health Education and Physical Education. In health, students will start the year off by learning about personal hygiene that includes: hand washing procedure, germs, cover your cough and sneeze, brushing teeth, washing clothes, & bathing. This is a broad topic that will be covered over the next month.

This Year’s Activities!

 

At the K-2 level, students will be receiving instruction in basic locomotor movements (run, walk, skip, gallorp, sliding, hop, jump), beginning jump rope, rhythms, ball skills (throwing, catching, kicking), and fitness. A variety of equipment is used to aid in instruction, including parachutes, balls, bean bags, and ropes. At the 3—5 level, there is great emphasis placed on sportsmanship, rules and procedures, and learning how to properly play different team sports. Students will also engage in lessons on catching, kicking, manipulating objects, rhythms, fitness, cooperative activities, and playing low organized games and developing strategies to be successful.
