Upcoming PE News!
Bikes are coming in April! Once again we have received a grant for the Kohl’s/Bikesmart trailer.
Let’s hope for good weather. The bikes will be with us from April 30th - May 4th.
Standardized testing is coming to Physical Education. While the Vermont AOE is still working on the details I have some information.
Here’s what I know:
I have been using the FitnessGram assessment tool for over a decade here at JES and while I do not grade on fitness levels the test gives me great information that is used to drive curriculum. An example would be, three years ago I added additional cardio and strength training elements into every second thru fourth grade class (see “superhero workouts” below), partly due to information gain from our fitness assessments. I was also able to report on improvements to upper body strength after the installation of our new playground.
Standardized testing in physical education, if used to benefit our students, is a positive step forward.
Lastly, with baseball and lacrosse season just around the corner, I found interesting article that I thought I would pass on.
