We have been super busy in PE. We spent the last month learning the all about frisbees. We learned how to throw and catch the frisbee, in 3 different ways (the traditional “L” throw, The forehand “double L”, and my favorite “The Fonzi.” We then moved into how to play games like frisbee golf, and bocce. Eventually we learned how to play Ultimate Frisbee, which is one of my favorite sports. If your student is interested in learning more about ultimate frisbee, I encourage you to find out more here: http://www.wfdf.org.
With the world series finally won, we can now focus our attention on the greatest sport of all time…Basketball. I know I am biased but basketball is by far the best sport. We will spend the next few weeks perfecting our Basketball game in P.E. Students will learn the primary triple threat skills, shooting, passing and dribbling. They will become fundamentally sound through fun games like the Lorax, Pirates of the Caribbean, Cone-Heads. They will also play traditional basketball games like HORSE, Around the World, and Dribble Tag. Of course 3 on 3 and 5 on 5 games will be played by the older kids too.
