"Play Hard, Play Fair, and Be Safe"

Welcome to Raven Stream Physical Education!

Welcome to Raven Stream Physical Education! We are very excited about the 2017-2018 school year. Each and every student will have the opportunity to gain a solid background in a variety of activities, in both areas of skill development and content knowledge. As always, we will be stressing the importance of sportsmanship, respect and participation. Raven Stream is committed to improving the health of all Raven Stream students, while increasing their opportunities for physical activity.

 

Jump Rope For Heart is underway and will finish on February 27th! Look for the Scare Squad!

 

THIS WEEK:

Kindergarten-2nd Grade - The students will be introduced to Jump Rope For Heart. They will also learn about jump rope safety and how to keep the jump rope rack organized. They will start the unit by doing some exploring around and over their jump rope. They will then learn about the mechanics of jumping rope. They will spend a lot of their time practicing the rhythm and consistency of jumping rope at different speeds.

3rd - 5th Grade - The students will be introduced to Jump Rope For Heart. They will also learn all of the important details of jumping rope. After that the students will be independently working on jump rope check-off sheets. The sheets have a wide variety of jumps and challenges. They will also be introduced to partner jumping and long roping later in the unit.
