LMS Physical Education Program
Spring is here! This means that students will finally be able to enjoy the warmer weather and participate in many outdoor PE activities. First, second, and third graders will continue to participate in a wide variety of activities working on skills such as spatial awareness, body control, locomotor and non-locomotor movements, fleeing and dodging -- all in collaboration with peers during small and large group games. They will receive a basic introduction to paddle and racquet sports which emphasize hand-eye coordination. All Upper Elementary and Middle School students will spend approximately six weeks learning the skills needed for the Olympic sport of Badminton. They will participate in small group games, and also learn the rules for singles and doubles play. Grades 5-8 will also take part in our 4th annual Badminton Tournament. Students will finish out the school year playing cooperative group games and Ultimate Frisbee.
Emphasis is always placed on teamwork, cooperation, and learning to keep our bodies healthy and safe.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
