Home PE Suggestions:

Our first assignment is an activity log.  For this activity log we are having students engage in activities of their choice for a total of 60 minutes per day.  We have provided resources (Family Fitness Calendar, Drop Everything and Move Calendar for March and April, YouTube: Dancepl3y) that students and families can reference.

 

Second assignment - juggling with tracking progress and goal setting.  

Juggling - continuously toss into the air and catch (objects like socks, trash bags, tennis balls, etc) so as to keep at least one in the air while handling the others.  

4 steps to juggle:

  1. Know the object.  Determine which object you would like to use to juggle. A pair of socks? Kleenex? Garbage bag?  Tennis ball? Toss the object and let it drop to the floor. See how quickly it gets to the floor. Does the object fit nicely into your hand? Will it be easy to catch?

  2. The toss. Toss object from one hand to the other hand. Catch and toss back to the other hand. Make the object arc like a rainbow when tossing. Repeat until you feel successful with little to no dropping of the object.

3. Two objects. Toss object from one hand, just like step 2.  Start with the hand that has two objects. However, before catching the object, toss object in other hand.

4. Three objects - same as step 3 but start with the hand that is holding two objects. Catch the second object while throwing object 3. Repeat juggling patterns with all three objects.                  

At the end of each day of student practice, students will be completing a reflection journal.  Students may complete online reflection form, hard copy of the reflection form, or a recorded audio response, to the following questions here on this document or via links.
