The Physical Education Program at the elementary level provides 5 required themes which include Basic Movement, Dance & Rhythms, Manipulatives, Ball Handling and Fitness using the Fitnessgram assessments for Grades 4 & 5. Supplemental themes include Track & Field, Climbing Wall, Orienteering, and Hoops to name a few.
Fitnessgram is a comprehensive fitness assessment battery for youth. It includes a variety of health-related physical fitness tests designed to assess cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition.
Fitnessgram is also a report card that summarizes the child’s performance on each component of health-related fitness. Fitnessgram can be used by students, teachers, and parents. Students can use Fitnessgram in planning their personal fitness program; teachers can use it to determine students needs and help guide students in program planning; and parents can use it to help them understand their child’s needs and help the child plan a program of physical activity.
Differentiating instruction means changing the pace, level, or kind of instruction you provide in response to individual learners’ needs, styles, or interests.
Rigor – challenging instruction to motivate students to push themselves.
Relevant – focusing on essential learning
Flexible and Varied – where appropriate, students make choices about how they will learn and how they will show what they’ve learned.
Complex – challenge students’ thinking and actively engage them in content that conveys depth and breadth.
Students may be switched between groups for different activities, lessons, or units. Students may be asked to form their own groups during class as well.
