Physical Education Grades 3-5

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION with MR. TOPSIDAKIS

 

What We Did: VOLLEYBALL! Our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders revisited various foundational skills such as setting (overhead), bumping (underhand), and serving, and even got to apply these skills in a live game setting where they worked on timing, teamwork, and strategies. The unit theme was RULES & ETIQUETTE of WORKING WITH OTHERS. Students learned about the importance of rules and etiquette so that every student feels safe, respected, and happy when interacting with one another.

 

What is Next: We will revisit our THROWING & CATCHING unit to reinforce their tactical and manipulative skills.

 

PLEASE JOIN ME FOR A 

FITNESS WORKSHOP

Date: April  15

Time: 2:30-3:30

What we will be learning: How to exercise effectively at home using little to no equipment (calisthenics).

What you should bring: This is a physically active workshop so please dress accordingly (i.e. sweatpants, sneakers, etc.) and have sufficient water with you.

THE BENEFITS OF CALISTHENICS:

Calisthenics are bodyweight exercises that help us achieve physical fitness and graceful movement. They enhance our aerobic endurance, muscular strength & endurance, and can also have relaxing benefits due to increased blood flow to injured and/or unbalanced areas of our body. They provide a whole body workout for all large muscle groups, elevate our heart rate to burn fat, tone muscles, and even improve our posture and increase endorphins. The best part is that virtually no gym equipment is required so calisthenics can be performed at home.  Mr. Topsidakis will be able to introduce you to and guide you through an easy, yet effective, routine.
