K Physical Education
P.E. in grades K-1 focuses on developing good habits around physical activity. They begin class every day with a short run, followed by basic stretches. Games like line tag, banana tag, and sink the ship involve use and development of hand-eye coordination, balance, and gross motor skills. Students work both individually and in teams with a variety of equipment to practice their skills and good sportsmanship. Activities are varied to allow students with different skills to shine. They also discuss how moving our bodies helps us concentrate better in school and the more you practice, the easier an activity will be. At the end of every class, students have the opportunity to give “shout–outs” to their peers for good sportsmanship, skill building, and collaboration.
