P.E.  

Dear students and family members, 

The physical education team at our school is working with resources from OPENPhysEd.org to help you stay physically active and healthy at home. In order to meet physical education goals during this time students must be physically active for 60 minutes each day. However, I realize that Elementary students are only scheduled P.E. twice a week right now, but I would recommend students still try and do some sort of physical activity daily. Use the link below to record your activity time. (Activity logs are optional) 

Remember, activity time doesn’t have to happen all at once. You can add up your total activity throughout the day to equal 60 minutes. Students, at the end of each day should ask a family member to initial next to their activity. Then, return the finished log to your physical education teacher when you go back to school. (Students will get prize for activity logs returned) 

Your physical education teachers would also like you to visit the file links below for your grade level. From there you’ll be able to download and print physical education resources that are fun and can be done at home. (These activities are just suggestions, not mandatory.) You’re welcome to choose your own activities, such as, Jump-roping, Jogging, Playing at the park, etc. 

Stay active and stay well. Don’t hesitate to e-mail me with any questions. Jgerace@rivercityscience.org 

Sincerely, 

Coach Gerace 

Skills 

Respect is also an act of giving attention or showing care. Choose one (or both) of the activities below to do for skills this week.  

  

  • Look through magazines for pictures that show people respecting others' differences or pictures of different kinds of people working or playing together. “I Respect Differences" collage.  

  • Make a song to the poem below:  
     
    We say, “Thank you.”  
     
    We say, “Please.”  
     
    We don’t interrupt or tease.  
     
    We don’t argue. We don’t fuss.  
     
    We listen when folks talk to us.  
     
    We share our toys and take our turn.  
     
    Good manners aren’t too hard to learn.  
     
    It’s really easy, when you find  
     
    Good manners means…  
     
    Just being kind
