The goals for Physical Education at St Ignatius are:
In grades K-2, the focus will be on play, body movement, spatial awareness and cooperation with classmates. In grades 3-8, the focus will become more sports/activity oriented. Through out the year, students will practice skills, techniques, and rules for many different sports and activities. These sports and activities will include but not be limited to the following:
Various versions of Dodge Ball
Stress relieving techniques
Badminton and other recreational games
Various versions of tag games
Effort and sportsmanship are the keys to success in my class. Students will not be graded on their athletic abilities. In order to encourage an appreciation for an active lifestyle and the benefits of physical activity for everyone, I base my grading on the following:
Each day, students have the opportunity to receive 1 point for each of those categories. Occasionally, we will have quizzes focusing on the rules and strategies of some of the activities and units we cover in class.
