We are off to a great start with our teamwork and cooperation activities. In grades 3-5, we played tag games such as Superman tag, Minnesota Mosquitoes, and Capture the flag. Then, moved on to a turtle racing, a battleship game, and Mission Impossible. In grades K-2, we focused on locomotor skills such as running, walking, jumping, hopping, sliding sideways, skipping, and galloping. Personal space and general space are also important to teach students. This knowledge allows them to move safely in the gym. These skills are important to learn at a young age and build a foundation for physical skills needed in more complex games. We incorporate an essential question and learning target in each lesson and help students understand the P.E. standards they are working on. Check it out:-)

We are excited to tell you about our Walk Fit program for the students at Keheley Elementary School this year. Walk Fit is an optional walking program for students before the school day starts. We all know how good walking is for people of all ages. We want for the students to understand the importance of exercise on a regular basis and the only way for them to really understand it, is to do it! When we have the students in our Physical Education class, we are following a curriculum and need every minute to teach them a variety of activities and movement concepts. We want to teach the children that frequency is important in an exercise program. Students will arrive at school and check in with their teacher. Students must eat breakfast first!!! The students will then exit the building to the track through A Wing ONLY. This will keep students away from the bus area and safe. The students will sign in with Mrs. Lawson, and Mrs. Tramble at the picnic table and then start walking around the track. This is another great way to develop a healthy lifestyle. We will be walking one day a week for each grade level with the exception of Kindergarten. If there is inclement weather, we will walk in the gym. This walking program will be a positive, stress free way to start the day. We hope that the children will be able to go back to their classrooms and be more alert to focus on their classroom work. We start Walk Fit August 14th 2017.
Tuesday-3rd and 4th grades
Friday- 1st and 2nd grades
We would appreciate your support for the Walk Fit program. We think this could make a positive difference in the lives of our students here at the school.
