Superheros in PE

This year I converted the gymnasium into Superhero Headquarters.  The students are loving the change.  Throughout the lesson I link the our superhero theme.  We started the year discussing our fitness levels and abilities.  I was able to obtain anchor charts from Teachers Pay Teachers which outlined the health components of fitness using PE Superhero Friends.  I have to say it was a great investment.  I plan on expanding the theme a little bit each year.  Do you want other great gym themes?  Check out Kevin Tillers site (especially if your into Star Wars).

Physical Literacy Packs

With the help of a long distance PE friend (Kevin Tiller) and a generous community grant I was able to create these wonderful physical literacy bags.  I very excited to offer a home and school physical activity back pack.  The P.A.L. Pack is stuffed with equipment, a users manual and picture books.  Families have the opportunity to try fun physical activity challenges, read exciting books related to health, fitness and wellness and make a commitment to better family health.  The P.A.L. Packs will be made available through a rotation of each class . Students will receive notice before the P.A.L. Pack is do to come home.
