    Grade/Subject: 2-4 Physical Education

    Welcome to the Killingly Memorial School Physical Education Page!

    Students will meet for Physical Education class on a weekly basis.  They will be participating in age and developmentally appropriate activities.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful students!
    Students will be expected to follow the school wide rules:
    1.  Be respectful
    2.  Be responsible
    3.  Be safe

    National Standards for Physical Education
    Physical activity is critical to the development and maintenance of good health.  The goal of physical education is to develop physically educated individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity. 

    A physically educated person: 

    Standard 1:  Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities

    Standard 2:  Demonstrates understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply to the learning and performance of physical activities

    Standard 3:  Participates regularly in physical activity

    Standard 4: Achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical fitness

    Standard 5:  Exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings

    Standard 6:  Values physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self expression, and/or social interaction

    Don't forget tennis shoes!  If a student is not wearing sneakers, he or she will be given an alternate assignment. (writing assignment) Tennis shoes should have a rubber sole with shoe laces or velcro.  All shoes that tie must be tied tight and on top of the shoe. 

    Jump Rope for Heart
    All students will have the opportunity to raise funds for the American Heart Association.  The students will get to spend the entire class period participating in a variety of jumping activities.  They will jump for a hero!
