  • Welcome to FMES Physical Education & YOGA 

    Physical Education encompasses the acquisitions of knowledge, physical fitness, motor skills, social skills and positive attitudes that foster and empower students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fullfilling life.  My effort on the elementary level is to form a foundation for the development of a physically educated person.  The National Association for Sport and Physical Education defines a physically educated individual as one who:  

    • Has learned skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities.
    • Is physically Fit
    • Participates regulary in physical activity.
    • Knows the implications and benefits of involvement in physical activities.
    • Values physical activity and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle.                   

    In elementary physical education, students take part in developmentally appropriate and sequentially based activities and experiences as an essential part of the total education process, and which contributes to the growth and development of the individual child.  In kindergarten to second grade, the emphasis is on learning basic movement and motor skills, developing the basics and understanding healthy fitness levels, and providing oppurtunities to develop effective personal and social skills.  

    Students will perform locomotor movements such as: Walking, Hopping, Skipping, Jumping, Galloping, Leaping, Jogging, Marching, Sliding, and Running

    Non-locomotor movements will include but not limited to:  Bending, stretching, and balancing will be taught in conjunction with body and spatial awareness.

    Manupilative skills include:  Rolling, throwing, tossing, catching, kicking, striking, and volleying

     

    Please make sure your child has sneakers in their cubby for P.E. class!  We don't want them missing all the fun!
