HAINES PHYSICAL EDUCATION
August/September Newsletter 2021
Welcome back to physical education at Haines! To start off the year in P.E. we will be doing introduction activities, team-building activities, and cooperatives during August. These activities will be great ways for the students to get to know their new classmates and encourage them to both help and feel comfortable with their peers while getting exercise. This will be the base of the entire school year as I focus on cooperation, sportsmanship, and teamwork throughout every unit we do as well as maintaining Illinois/National P.E. standards.
At the start of September, we will be going into our first sport unit of the school year which will be soccer! All grades will be learning and practicing soccer dribble skills, passing skills, and shooting skills. Small team and modified gameplay will be introduced at the end of the unit as well. As always, fitness games will be mixed into the soccer unit too.
Please remember that each student needs to either wear or bring gym shoes to school every day that they have P.E. scheduled, this is the same throughout the entire school year. If they do not have the correct footwear they cannot participate as it is a safety issue. They are allowed to bring gym shoes in their backpacks. Thanks!
