Mrs. Krehely's PE





 Team Sports, Teamwork, and Ball Control Skills

                           2015 - 2016

  School is in full swing!  I hope you have had an easy transition to school.  While you are working hard at your schoolwork and doing your homework, don’t forget to make time to play, have fun and be active!   In P.E., we start the year by reviewing our rules and safety issues. We discuss our P.E. Code of Honor.  These include discussions on honor, character, safety, working to the best of our ability, fairness and sportsmanship.   

   Our lessons will focus on activities that involve teams, teamwork and ball control skills.   In the primary grades we will be playing games like Soccer, Pin Soccer, line soccer and games of Tag.  In the intermediate grades and junior high grades we will be working on Soccer, Football, Speed Ball, Ultimate Frisbee, and a variation of Steal the Bacon. If we are inside, we will be playing games like Ga Ga Ball, Soccer Foose Ball, Bean Bag Tag, and Speed ball.  We will also run relay races.  This is a sampling of the games that we will play this year.

Stay Fit, Have Fun

        ·         Swim – many of the local communities offer pool memberships, a chance to join a swimming team and/or swimming lessons. If you do not have access to an outdoor pool, don’t forget to check out the indoor area pools. The Anne Arundel County Parks and Planning website offers information on indoor pools operated through Anne Arundel County. http://www.aacounty.org/RecParks/swimcenters/#.U5G4nXKwJls

         Rules and Expectations

  P.E. is a course that requires active participation on the role of the student in a setting that is supportive of their regular curriculum.  Students are given opportunities for enjoyment and challenge while showcasing their unique abilities. Students are expected to come to class prepared to demonstrate good sportsmanship, teamwork and class participation while respecting others in the class with different levels of abilities.

  Students will be asked to participate in team sports and in activities that promote individual fitness and health.  Examples of units that focus on team sports are football, speedball, soccer, baseball, basketball and volleyball.  Units that focus on the individual may include track and field events, physical fitness tests and health units.

  Students will be evaluated on how well they participate in the activity of the day; the effort and attitude they display in class, their behavior in class and how consistent they are in their attempts to perform the targeted skill.  In order for everyone to enjoy P.E., students are expected to behave accordingly.  This means that students need to treat each other with respect, take part in the activity, use appropriate language, use the equipment carefully, demonstrate safety and show good sportsmanship.

 Students will earn performance points in P.E. based on the following criteria:
