Rules, Warm-up Routines, Fitness Testing Oh My!

We've had a great first 2 weeks in P.E. class going over rules, teaching our warm-up routines and getting ready for fitness testing! We are really enjoying getting to know your wonderful children and watching their excitement in our class.


The 1st graders are still learning the "P.E. ropes" and building up their cardiovascular endurance, but eventually this is what our typical weekly warm-up schedule will look like for them:


  • Mileage Mondays: 8 minute jog, followed by hamstring stretch
  • Test Prep Tuesdays: Students rotate through fitness test components for 45 seconds each: shuttle run, flexed arm hang, push-ups and curl-ups
  • Cardio Choice Wednesdays: Students can choose jump ropes, dribbling a basketball, or jogging for their warm-up activity
  • Test Prep Thursdays: Students rotate through fitness test components for 45 seconds each: shuttle run, flexed arm hang, push-ups and curl-ups
  • Flex Fridays: Teacher's choice and game days

1st Graders in Action!

We have played a variety of tagging, line-up and parachute games after warm-ups the last 2 weeks, here are some fun pictures of them in action!
