Hi Cameron PE students, 
Mr. K and I are hoping that as each week wraps up, you will check-in by emailing us to let us know what activity(ies) you have done throughout the week. 
Simple - type in what you did for exercise.  
Your entry might look like any of these suggestions:

      I did sit-ups and push-ups on Monday and Wed.
     Today I went for a bike ride for 40 min.
     Yesterday I went for a walk with my brother.
     I did a tabata exercise video from the Cameron PE google classroom resources.

Exercise during this time at home is varied and different for each of us. 

Email us and tell us what you are doing. Thanks. This will help us for trimester 3.

Mr. K and I set up a google classroom https://classroom.google.com/u/0/c/NzQwNTY0NTQ3OTda
If you email me at my school email address, I will give you the class code to get in. 
The Cameron PE google classroom site is another option to stay in touch and use resources for staying active.

This is not our usual school year. We are spending a lot of time away from school and work. We are practicing social distancing versus practicing and improving our volleyball skills in the Cameron gym. I miss seeing you all at school - in the gym, hallways, breakfast, and especially in PE classes. 

While you are at home, try to stay strong and active by doing some exercises. Try to walk each day -when it's nice out. Remember to practice social distancing when you see a friend or classmate - stand 6' apart and talk from there. 
Try to exercise: do some sit-ups, push-ups, squats, planks, dance in your house, jump rope (watch out for the furniture or go outside), do exercises and stretching - even when watching a movie or TV.

As already mentioned, if you can do so safely, get outside for a walk or bike ride on the nice days.  I have been walking on most days to get exercise and relieve stress. I feel better after I walk. 
Have you with your family join you for a walk. It is good exercise and a stress relieving activity for them too. Remember social distancing when you come up to a friend.  I know it's hard, but you can be good examples in this situation. 

When you're inside, try to do some sort of exercises while you're watching TV. Maybe some sit ups, push-ups, and stretching. I'm sure that you remember exercises that we have done in PE class or on at your sports practices. Even a little bit of exercise each day will make you feel good. 

You might want to make a chart or write down on a calendar page what you do and the # of exercises that you do. 

1. First set: Start with your max number- do as many as you can do in one set without stopping- note the number for set 1. Rest for 30-60 seconds between each set. 
2. Second set: Divide the # from set#1 in half. Now you'll do 1/2 the# of set 1
3. Third set: now do 1/2  the number of set 2
4. Fourth set: now do 1/2 the number of set 3
And so on. If your first set was more than 12 you will end up doing 4-5 sets. Remember to rest between each set. 
Add up all your push-ups. Wow! Bravo! 

If your first set is three push-ups, be proud of yourself for those three!  Rest for 30-60 seconds, then do another set of three great push-ups. Rest.  Repeat more push-ups until your arms are too tired to go on. You will be tired and your arms will be sore, but know you are doing good things for your upper body. Bravo! 

You can do this format of exercises with sit-ups. 
Keep track of what you do in a notebook or on a calendar. You will be surprised at the way your body works. Some good days, some tired days. Keep track and let me know how you're doing. Email me if you have any questions. 

The Grade 8 Reward Volleyball Tourney date was to be Thursday, 3/19/20. With all that's going on with schools being closed for Covid-19, the VB tourney is not a #1 topic. Grade 8 students - it's a bummer - no school, no tourney. If you really love volleyball, try to go out for the team next year in high school. Or join a recreational program - check in with Mr. K about programs. Check out the high school after school intramurals to see if and when there are programs. 

The Volleyball Unit started on February 12th. We will have Volleyball for four cycles: days 1-6. 

We encourage students to try their best.

More info coming. 






We also introduce FIELD HOCKEY in this unit. The Field Hockey part of the unit introduces the sport with the different sticks and heavier ball. We continue to emphasize safety with the same above safety guidelines.  

Field Hockey is a sport that students can play as an extracurricular sport at FHS. The FHS Filed Hockey team is always in need of players with a no cut program. We encourage our PE students to learn it  now and try out for the team when in 9th grade. 


THE PACER TEST was here. Students ran it. It's done until the spring. 
The Pacer Test, cardiovascular running test
We will continue with all classes until we are finished. 
A mini unit of basketball will take place after in classes the Pacer Test.
Have your sneakers, shorts, t-shirt for every PE class. Be ready! 
Try to run your best and get into the healthy zone for your age and gender.

 Boys  age Girls
 23-72 11 15-41
 32-72 12 15-41
 41-72 13 23-51
 41-83 14 23-51
 51-94 15 32-51

You will be running the Pacer Test in the fall and then the spring. 
Try to be ready. 
Some people will have chances to run it 2x in the fall = yahoo! 

After Thanksgiving Break, we will start our hockey (floor hockey and field hockey) unit. 

The school year ahead - 2019-20 - is already filled with lots of activity in Physical Education classes. Please be ready by having:
  • sneakers that are good for playing soccer, flag football, running, etc. and socks or peds to wear to prevent blisters. Basketball sneakers will be later in the year. We will expect you to be ready to move and run, etc. when in PE class. Sneakers should stay on your feet. laced sneakers = generally the best.  
  • *If you have old sneakers that are still good and fit, save them to have in your academic locker for the year -just in case you forget one day. OR donate them to the PE sneaker closet for others to use. 
            If you come to PE with inappropriate footwear (sandals, flip flops, boots, boat shoes), you have the option to borrow sneakers from the sneaker closet (we also have socks) and continue to participate in PE class with a small reduction of preparation credit.
            If you come to PE with inappropriate footwear (sandals, flip flops, boots, boat shoes) and you choose NOT to borrow loaner sneakers, you lose preparation credit and participation credit because you will NOT be able to participate in PE class with inappropriate footwear. SO BE PREPARED WITH YOUR SNEAKERS.
  • shorts (a few pair) that are suitable for movement in sports - they move with you, stay up on your waist (don't slip down when you're running), are long enough so you are covered acceptably for school OR other pants - leggings, sweat pants, wind pants - that allow you to move freely as you play. 
  • t-shirt(s) for PE and school - you might as well have a few T-shirts b/c you will need them for PE and can wear them for regular school days. You can wear other shirts as long as you are covered appropriately meeting school expectations. (Please no showing of cleavage, belly, butts, bra straps.)
If you come to PE with inappropriate clothing (long jeans, cargo pants, skirt, romper, low cut shirt, camisole, or other inappropriate for PE clothing) you lose preparation  credit because you are not prepared with PE appropriate clothing. Some clothing - skirt or other items - is NOT GOOD for PE activity. SO BE PREPARED WITH YOUR GYM CLOTHES.
  • sweatshirt or jacket as the days get cooler b/c we will go outside for most days of the fall season. Our outside fields are great areas to play. 
When there are two classes in the gym, the PE book shelves get very busy and full of books -so label your items to help keep your stuff from getting mixed up with other people's stuff. 

Our first unit was Four Square and Intro to Cameron PE. We reviewed expectations and being P-R-O in PE. 

 P = PERSEVERANCE, R = RESPECT, O = OWNERSHIP  All of our units involve activities using good sportsmanship; we talk about this all the time. I meant it! All the time!


We are fininshing up our third unit of the year: a combo: Ultimate Frisbee (UF) and Flag Football (FFB). We held one cycle of UF - learning the rules and getting into games. Then we held one cycle of FFB to again get the rules out and start game play. The rain affected some PE days when we opted to play Capture the Football because we were inside. 
In FFB, all players wear flag belts that show the team (red or yellow) and are quick release flag tags to pull instead of tackling the ball carrier. THERE IS NO TACKLING!  WHEN THE BALL DROPS OR IS DROPPED - THE PLAY ENDS.  SAFETY IS OUR #1 CONCERN. 
PERSEVERE - Show RESPECT - Take OWNERSHIP when you play games in PE. 

  • carry the ball back to the huddle
  • no stiff arm or swiping at the ball carrier
  • try to dodge others vs. running into or through others

In some classes we are working on push-ups and sit-ups/curl-ups as warm up exercises. 

Please try to figure out when your student has PE and encourage sneakers and activewear. Contact me if you need help with this detail. Reach out if you have any questions on the Physical Education program. 

Questions? Email me: kdauer@framingham.k12.ma.us


    O = OWNERSHIP                     
***** GO PRO IN PE *****

We work on exercises - push-ups, curl-ups, some stretching, and information on class procedures.

Previous website info:

Welcome to all Cameron students and families for an exciting and active year ahead. 

Physical Education class meets 1 or 2 times per 6 day cycle. The schedule is different than elementary school because of the rotation of days. Please try to look at your schedule (your student's schedule) to figure out the PE days so that you have sneakers and gym wear. 

A common suggestion that students find agreeable - keep sneakers, socks, shorts, t-shirt in your academic locker in a small tote/gym bag so you're always ready. Do this and you will always be prepared. And do not loan these out to others because then you will not be ready. During the school day, bring your gym bag/sneakers/ etc. with you to your classes that you have just before PE so you come prepared. Going back to get your stuff wastes valuable PE time. Come prepared and on time. 

Experience in sports and fitness is not needed to succeed in PE. Come prepared, be willing to participate to the best of your abilities, listen to directions, follow directions, demonstrate sportsmanship, persevere, be respectful, and when you mess up - which we all do - own it. 

Looking forward to a great year in Physical Education! 

Email me if you have questions or need some direction about fitness plans or suggestions. kdauer@framingham.k12.ma.us Explore my website for other details. 


The FITNESSGRAM Reports were emailed to you during the end of the 2016-17 school year. Hopefully you received your copy and can open it.  

For the first time- this year Mr. Kelberman and I have worked with a new on-line FITNESSGRAM program. Thus we were able to enter the data - that you worked on in Physical Education class - in a new method and send you a electronic copy through email.  If you would help out, look it over and reply to us by sending me an email that you received your FITNESSGRAM and that you were able to read it. Let us know what you think about it. Primarily, let us know that you could open it and read it. Thanks.  And keep working on your push-ups and sit-ups during the summer. As I said above, if you want help with a fitness plan, email me with questions and I will reply.  kdauer@framingham.k12.ma.us

Grade 6 Boys and Grade 6 Girls Tourneys took place on Wednesday, June 7th 8:22-12:12 - yes during the school day. 

Grade 8 Boys and Grade 8 Girls Tourneys took place on Thursday, June 8th 8:22-12:12 - yes during the school day.

Grade 7 Boys and Grade 7 Girls Tourneys took place on Friday, June 9th 8:22-12:12 - yes during the school day.  

Information on the tourneys:
The tourneys are free, Cameron students make up their own teams of students in their grade (teams of 4 are suggested play 3 with a sub rotating in every 2 points - or 2 minutes of play.  
Students do have to meet an eligibility standard with their teachers re: grades, homework, and behavior in school. Also Cameron library books have to be returned or paid for in order to play. 
Games are winner at the end of 10 minutes or first team to 7 points. 
Tourney is double elimination. So teams keep playing until they lose 2x. Then they are knocked out.  

FYI: Students can wear gym clothes to and from PE class - you do not have to change into gym wear- yet some students like to bring another shirt to wear so that they do not have to go through the rest of the day in a sweaty shirt. You may carry a small backpack or tote with your gym clothes/sneakers. We have locker rooms for changing. We allow 3 minutes for changing clothes. 

When you come to the gym, please place your books/binder on the bookshelves in the gym entrance. At home, label your books, binders, notebooks, agendas (on the front and back) so that they do not get mixed up with others' items. Binders, books, and folders look similar -so labeling really helps. Label your sweatshirt on the inside label - this helps when sweatshirts get left in the gym or anywhere in the school. 

Questions?  Please feel free to ask me in class, email kdauer@framingham.k12.us , call the Cameron main office (508-879-2290) or leave me a message on my Cameron voice mail (508-782-7875).
