Mrs. Mathieu - FGS P.E. - Classroom Spotlight

Elementary Physical Education is off and running!!! Here is a quick run-down...

 

First grade has been introduced to a variety of warm-up songs and activities that help focus on developing spatial awareness, listening skills, and the basic locomotor movements of walking, jogging, marching, and running.

 

Second graders have been reviewing spatial skills and using more advanced locomotor movements through a variety of different pathways: straight, curved and zig-zag.

 

Third grade students have been introduced to a 30 second team fitness activity that incorporates agility, locomotor, and strength exercises.  More advanced exercises will be added to the activity to help them be faster, quicker, and stronger.  This activity, along with others, will help students prepare for their first physical fitness tests in the spring.

 

Fourth and fifth graders will soon complete their fall fitness tests.  Illinois has required the four following FitnessGram fitness assessments:

            for aerobic capacity - the PACER test (for students in grades 4-12);

            for flexibility - the Back-Saver Sit and Reach test;

            for muscular endurance - the Curl-Up test;

            for muscular strength - the Push-Up test.

It will be helpful to see the growth and development of our students as they progress throughout the year.  Best wishes for a happy and healthy school year!!!
