• Welcome to Lowell PE 2021-2022 where our homework is always

    Go Outside and Play!

    WELCOME BACK

    How nice to see everyone in school all day long!

    K-2

    We will begin year practicing basic movement skills especially safety skills like "personal space" and "finding open space". 

    Trimester one assessments will include: knowledge of rules and safety, locomotor movements, cooperative skills and participation and some eye-hand, eye-foot coordination skills (soccer and/or field hockey drills). 

    3-5

    We will begin the year reviewing safety rules and completing a practice Fitnessgram test so we can set some reasonable goals for the end of the year. 

    Trimester one assessments will include: applying knowledge of rules and safety during activities, sportsmanship during tennis, field hockey and soccer, skill improvement including game responsibility during tennis, field hockey and soccer units and participation in sustained moderate physical activity.

    Trimester #2 guide (Spring is just around the corner!):

    Grade report explanations:

    I= Student performs this skill independently

    S= Student needs some support performing this skill

    N=Student does not yet perform this skill

    K-2

    Rules and Safety: There is an expectation that the student will demonstrate knowledge of rules and safety skills taught and practiced as they relate to: personal space, following directions, use of equipment, and making good choices. Ability to make good choices is based on the four main PE rules which we review regularly: Is it safe for me? Is it safe for others? Is it kind? Am I setting a good example? We ask that students reflect on these questions as they try their best every day.

    Moderate to vigorous activity:  There is an expectation that each student will try his or her very best each day, knowing that some days will be more difficult than others for a variety of reasons whether emotional or physical.

    Individual responsibility and cooperative skills: There is an expectation that students will follow daily skill directions, listen to others, cooperate with partners and groups, help others when asked, assist in daily clean up, stay on task during PE class and respect classmates and the teacher. It is also expected that when issues arise, students will communicate with the teacher only after first trying to resolve the issue with classmates.

    K-2

    Locomotor skills: The focus was on skipping since there is a correlation to reading skills. We also looked at hopping on both right and left legs to assess any noticeable weakness on either side.

    1st and 2nd grade eye-foot coordination

    Dribbling skills. Students were assessed on dribbling a playground ball: hand position, use of fingers and finger pads without use of palm, pressing the ball hard to the ground, ability to move the ball from hand to hand (crossovers) and smooth, continuous and confident motion.

    *To perfect dribbling skills, practice is essential. One of the best ways to have a nice conversation with your child is to go outside and play one on one “knock out”.

    Rhythm skills. Students were assessed on jump rope skills: jumping in a long rope and running out of a moving long rope without being touched by the rope.

    *Do you have a jump rope at home? This is one of the all-time great exercises for endurance as well as coordination!  

    3-5

    Rules and Safety: There is an expectation that the student will demonstrate knowledge of rules and safety skills taught and practiced as they relate to: following daily directions, safe use of equipment, staying on task, good decision making, and respect for classmates, and teacher. Ability to make good choices is based on the four main PE rules which we review regularly: Is it safe for me? Is it safe for others? Is it kind? Am I setting a good example?

    Moderate to vigorous activity:  There is an expectation that each student will try his or her very best each day, knowing that some days will be more difficult than others for a variety of reasons whether emotional or physical.

    Teambuilding and Sportsmanship: There is an expectation that students will exhibit fair and appropriate behavior (win or lose) during competitive games and skills. Students will also listen to others, cooperate with partners and groups (especially by contributing to the success of the group), help others when asked, and assisting in daily clean up. It is also expected that when issues arise, students will communicate with the teacher only after trying to resolve the issue with classmates.

    3rd Grade:

    Demonstrates Basic Object Control: Basketball dribbling: correct hand position (use of fingers, finger pads, no palm), press ball hard to floor, crossovers especially as it applies to defense, ball control with smooth, confident, continuous motion.

    Demonstrates Team-building skills: ability to cooperate with teammates and responsibly play assigned position during floor hockey games.

    Set realistic fitness goals: assessed on ability to set reasonable goals for fitness skills from their fall fitness pre- tests and PE warm ups.

    Independently creates rhythmic routine: Students created and performed a jump rope routine

    4th Grade:

    Competency in Individual and Team Sports: Students were assessed on knowledge of floor hockey positions and responsibilities.

    Independently creates rhythmic routine: Students created and performed a jump rope routine with a partner.

    Identifies fitness components in various activities: Fitness quiz based on components of Fitnessgram. Quiz was taken with a partner.

    5th Grade:

    Competency in Individual and Team Sports/Offensive and Defensive Strategies: Students were assessed on knowledge of floor hockey positions, responsibilities and line changes.

    Independently creates rhythmic routine: Students created and performed a jump rope routine with a group.

    Evaluates personal fitness strengths and weaknesses: Based on student’s assessment of their own Fitnessgram pretests, PE warm ups, and setting realistic goals for the spring.

    GOODBYE TRIMESTER ONE!

    Trimester one has flown by!

    Good bye trimester one!

    K-2 Students have worked very hard on safety, basic movement skills (locomotor movements, levels, pathways, body directions, speed (fast, slow, chit chat), throwing skills and kicking skills.

    3-5 Students have recorded baseline fitness scores, worked on tennis skills, had our Lowell Open Tennis Tournament, practiced our football throwing grip, form and accuracy, applied our football punting and field goal kicking skills to soccer, and held our Lowell World Cup soccer tournament.

    1st and 2nd grade eye-foot coordination

    Throwing skills. Students were assessed on arm-leg opposition, weight transfer (rocking backward then forward), stepping toward the target and following through.
