January - February 2014

My apologies to those of you who have visited this site recently and found November’s letter in this space.  There have been some technical problems with Connect that caused December and January to disappear.  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again. 

My plan is to continue volleyball through the end of January and beginning of February.  Then we’ll begin another fitness unit.  This time around students will really analyze their past performance in the areas of cardio-respiratory endurance, muscle strength and flexibility and plan new routines to help them improve.  They will also use the F.I.T.T. principle: frequency, intensity, time & type.  That is, frequency of particular type of workout, relative intensity of the workout, duration, and type of workout.  All of the fitness components and FITT principles are mounted on the wall in the gym for our reference when we need them.

We will also reprise tumbling and then start jumping rope as we move through February and into March.  If you have any comments or questions, feel free to email me or post a comment on the PE Blog.

See you in PE!
