Remote Learning - Trimester 3 - Alt. Sports & Games/PE
June 20 (emailed to Students and Parents)
Dear Students and Parents,
 
That’s a wrap!
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you. Just like learning from home was new for you, teaching from my home was a new experience for me. I truly appreciate the hard work each of you put in this Trimester and hope that we can be together in person again soon. Have a great summer and enjoy the much deserved time off. 
 
A special shout out to my 8th grade class. Thank you for making Trimester 1 so much fun and sticking with it during Trimester 3 when it would have been very easy for you to check out early. Good luck next year in High School and please stop by anytime for a visit.
 
Sincerely,
Mr. Gray
Week8 EXTRA CREDIT (emailed to Students and Parents)
Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to your final week of distance learning! As I mentioned in the beginning of Trimester 3 that although it may not be ideal, together, we would make the best of the situation. Learning how to motivate yourselves to be active now is an important skill so that you can be healthy for a lifetime. Additionally, understanding physical health is a key ingredient to the Health Triangle and is directly connected to your social and mental/emotional health.
This week is extra credit week and you will be learning about 12 different alternative sports and games. Although I hope that you will take the time to do this activity, it is extra credit and optional.
Extra Credit is due no later than Saturday, June 20th, 12:00pm (Noon).
LATE EXTRA CREDIT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!
The Google Form is now open for you to do the extra credit as soon as you would like.
I encourage everyone to do the extra credit and I think you will be amazed at some of the non-traditional sports that are out there (while these sports are entertaining and interesting, please DO NOT try these at home). Participation will include watching a 10 minute Youtube video and then taking a short quiz via Google Form. You can earn up to seven points extra credit and your answers will be graded automatically when you hit the submit button at the end.

I am very proud of all of your efforts this Trimester. Your work is appreciated and I hope you had fun.
Sincerely,
Mr. Gray

Week6 (6/1-6/5) (emailed to Students and Parents)

Hello PE students and Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend. This week we are going to begin each class with our daily warm-up.

1. Hug knee (R, L)

2. Hurdle or Figure 4 stretch

3. Funky Frog

4. Quad stretch

5. Lunge stretch

6. Achilles or calf stretch

7. Straight Arm across body stretch

8. Back Scratch holding elbows.

9. 10+ push-ups—regular or on your knees

10. Low plank on elbows 20+ seconds.

Next, you are going to try to do 10 minutes of cardio. If weather permits, you can go for a quick jog or bike ride. If it’s a rainy day, please run up and down stairs or do more jumping jacks and squats.

Now, we are going to move on to the Shoe Balance Challenge. In order to complete this activity, you’ll need to clear an area so you can lie down flat on the ground and roll around without bumping into anything. Also, you’ll need 1 shoe (in addition to the shoes you’re wearing). You’ll start off by lying on your back with one leg bent with that foot on the ground and your other leg extended in the air with your foot parallel to the ground. Now, you need to place your extra shoe onto of your extended foot and keep it balanced. Your goal now is to completely rotate your body 360 degrees without letting the shoe fall off of your extended foot. Ideally, you should be able to accomplish this in less than 1 minute, but you may need to practice this a few times! If you can’t do it at first, keep trying – don’t give up!

Please watch the YouTube video link below to help you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G28-DU8EPaQ

Week5 (5/18-5/22) (emailed to Students and Parents)

Dear Students,

Welcome to Week 5 of Remote Learning. As we enter into the second half of Trimester 3, please take notice of your mid-trimester grade which was posted on Friday. Students received either a Pass or an Incomplete. Please see ISD grading guidelines that came out last week. I ask that you use this information as a self-check to guide your efforts over the final 4 weeks of school. Please continue to submit your Fitness Log each week before the window closes so you can ensure that you get full credit. The window for this week will open on Thursday and close on Saturday at 12:00pm, Noon. I always say early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable. You should be participating in at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day to receive all points possible. By now you should have figured out how to adapt fitness activities to fit your personal needs. For instance, if you are injured or feeling under the weather, you can do some meditation or the daily stretches. If the weather does not cooperate, you can participate in any activity that you find on YouTube. For this week I have not only provided activities for you to complete each day, but I have also included musical numbers/videos for you to enjoy. I always feel that music makes any situation better and I hope you enjoy a laugh or two along the way. All the instructions and links for the week are included in this email as well as posted on my website. Thank you for your efforts!

Sincerely,

Mr. Gray   

Mindful Monday – 5/18

All kids benefit from practicing mindfulness. Who wouldn’t love to become more focused, calm, in control, and self-aware? Mindfulness is a technique that can help teach and strengthen those abilities over time. By practicing mindfulness, people can learn to become more aware of their own thoughts, feelings, sensations, and the environment around us. It helps us to refocus and re-center on the present, rather than the past or the future. Today’s task is to check out the link below and pick two mindfulness activities to participate in.

Trivia Tuesday – 5/19

Fitness Jeopardy! Today’s task is to check out the link below and play a game of Physical Fitness Jeopardy with members of your family. This episode is from Jeopardy Kids Week and a great way to incorporate expanded content across all school subjects. For our purposes, a body reward (exercise) is given to each player in the room after each question is given, regardless of whether their answer was correct or incorrect.

Round 1 - correct answer = 1 jumping jack/incorrect answer = 1 push up

Round 2 – correct answer = 2 squats/incorrect answer = 2 sit ups

Final Jeopardy – correct answer = 3 second plank/incorrect answer = 30 second wall sit/air chair

Walking Wednesday – 5/20

Walking Wednesday! Break a longer walk up into three separate short walks. Each walk should be about 10 minutes long and spaced out throughout the day (no less than 30 minutes total, but feel free to go longer if you wish). Try taking one short walk in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Encourage a family member to go with you or bring the dog along if you have one.

Today’s task is to check out the link below and pick two activities to participate in with your family indoors.

Week4 (5/11-5/15) (emailed to Students and Parents)

Dear Students,

Welcome to Week 4 of online learning. Thank you to those who continue to submit their Fitness Logs each week by the Saturday deadline (12PM/Noon). Out of 150 kids in Week 1, only 6 students did not make the cut off. Unfortunately, these numbers have changed over the last two weeks, resulting in only partial credit or even a zero in some cases. I want to make sure you finish the year strong and I am here to support you if you have any questions. Please reach out to me if problems arise, before deadlines have passed, to ensure that we can work through the issue. Now, on to Week 4! 

Fitness Challenges: While these can be done alone, you can contact a friend via your phone and challenge them as well. You can even do many of these activities while you are watching TV or another activity. Holding plank while watching TV starts to get pretty interesting.

Cardio ideas for each day: walk/jog outside, jump rope, ride your bicycle, use a home cardio machine if your parents have one. Aim for 20-30 minutes of cardio.

Monday

Plank challenge: hold plank (forearm or hands) for as long as you can. Try to aim for two minutes.

Extra challenge: raise alternate legs.

Fitness tip: While brushing your teeth tonight, stand on one leg at a time to challenge your balance.

Tuesday

Core challenge:

· On your back,

o 25 bicycle crunches

o 25 leg lifts (alternate legs to make it more challenging)

o 25 sit ups.

Fitness tip: Use alternative methods to stay active. Walk the dog with greater frequency and duration. Help your family with chores and yardwork.

Wednesday

Pushup challenge: On your knees or in a full plank do 5 sets of 5 pushups.

Extra: Lift one leg at a time.

Thursday

Find an online resource. There are many YouTube videos and resources that can challenge your fitness. Do a HIIT class, a yoga class or be creative and make your own fitness video! If you find a good resource, share it with a friend.

Friday

15 burpees

15 jumping jacks

15 side to side ski jumps

Week3 (5/4-5/8) (emailed to Students and Parents)
Dear Students,
By now you are hopefully getting into the groove of online learning and figured out what works best for you as far as time management, which is an essential life skill. I hope you enjoy this week and as always, let me know if you have any questions. Here we go!
Welcome to Star Wars Week! May The 4th Be With You and Revenge Of The Fifth. 
Also, this week you will participate in a Virtual Field Day. Please follow the links to guide you through this week's daily physical fitness activities. Lastly, students are encouraged to join in our May Marathon. See if you can walk, jog, or run your way to 26.2 miles by the end of the month. Use the link provided to track your progress and try to get your family members involved. Remember to fill out and submit your fitness log by the end of the week (Due 5/9 at Noon).
The online fitness log window will open up Thursday night.
Sincerely,
Mr. Gray
April 29 (emailed to Students and Parents)
Dear Students,
A few of you have asked about this week’s Fitness Log and when the link will be turned on. The answer to this question is Friday morning. I do not want students submitting their activities before the week ends. I would recommend that you document your activities for the week on paper so that you can accurately fill out the electronic form by the deadline (this week – 5/2 @ Noon). Unfortunately, there is not a way to record on the electronic fitness log each individual day so it needs to be filled out all at once.
For those who are having trouble connecting to the activities for today and tomorrow (PACER & Fitness Blender), I have now added new links for both on my website.
Since we are a learning team/community, I have listed each of our responsibilities to help us all be successful during this unique new way of curriculum delivery. This is a new experience for everyone so please feel free to reach out as questions arise. 
Student Responsibilities:
Check e-mail and teacher website daily.
Make a schedule for the week to space out schoolwork.
Complete lessons in the order indicated.
Submit Weekly Fitness Log on time.
Contact Mr. Gray by e-mail at: grays@issaquah.wednet.edu if questions or additional support is needed.
Teacher Responsibilities:
Create and share weekly lessons that are relevant and easily accessible to students.
Be available by e-mail for questions, help, or to say “Hi!” (will respond within 24 hours or less).
Check e-mail daily.
Review student work and provide feedback and encouragement.
Parent Responsibilities:
Read the weekly e-mail.
Check in with your child, offer encouragement on their progress, and help them brainstorm how to solve challenges they might encounter during the week.
Encourage your child to reach out to me if they need help or additional support.
Sincerely,
Mr. Gray

Week2 (4/27-5/1) (emailed to Students and Parents)

Dear Students,

Welcome to Week 2 of remote learning. The directions and learning tools for this week are listed below. Each activity is broken down by day. Remember to fill out your Fitness Log at the end of the week. Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope everyone is doing well!

Sincerely,

Mr. Gray

Week2 Directions

April 24 (emailed to Students and Parents)
This is just a reminder that all Week 1 Fitness Logs are due tomorrow by noon (4/25). Thank you to those who have already submitted. The link can be found on my website. Please do not submit Fitness Logs via email as this would generate 150 emails in my inbox.
Sincerely,
Mr. Gray
April 22 (emailed to Students and Parents)
Dear Students, 
Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all doing well and settling into this first week of remote learning.
Please let me know if you have any questions about what my expectations are for you this week and beyond. Your first Fitness Log is due no late than this Saturday (noon), 4/25. Please log your Physical Fitness Activities over the past five days to submit for points towards your grade. Remember, each day is worth one point for a total of five points at the end of the week. This will correlate to into Pass/Fail.
This week you were asked to either complete the Obstacle Course Challenges or choose your own work outs for each day. Week 1 is pretty open, but you should be able to show me how you were active each day. Moving forward, I will provide different opportunities for each day of the week. I would prefer that you do the activities I assign, but will work with you if you have any special circumstances. Please reach out to me if this is the case. Even if you are injured or feeling under the weather on a particular day, there are many opportunities to help you stay active. Youtube is an excellent resource where you can do meditation, Yoga, and even workouts while seated in a chair. I recommend trying some of these activities in between some of your other school work as a method of relieving any stress you made have while you navigate the new normal in learning. Again, please let me know if you have any questions.
Stay healthy and safe!
Sincerely,
Mr. Gray 

Week1 (4/20-4/24) (emailed to Students and Parents)

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to remote learning! I hope you had a fun and/or restful break and are ready to begin. This week you will be creating Homemade Obstacle Courses. The key to being successful in this challenge is flexibility. Now, I don’t mean flexibility in the traditional fitness way, like being able to touch your toes without bending your knees – I mean flexibility in the way that you set up your course.

Everyone’s obstacle courses will be completely different because we all have access to different materials and environments. Some of the best courses can be made with regular household items like blankets and pillows, but if you have a yard or outdoor space, please feel free to incorporate any fitness materials that you may have around. All of your courses should have some basic things in common. All good courses should contain:

Fitness/strength components – this can be an area where an athlete would be expected to do a certain number of push-ups, burpees, or jumping jacks.

Balance components – this can be an area where the athlete needs to jump from one pillow or rock to another without falling off. It can also look like a balance beam made out of logs (for an outdoor course) or rolled up towels or blankets for an indoor one.

Cardio components – this can be in the form of different locomotor skills that include running, skipping, jumping, sidestepping, or crab-walking.

The first step will be to decide where you would like to set up your course. Some options include in your backyard (if you have one) or on a sidewalk (this option might require chalk or colored tape). Please look ahead to the weather report before you decide where to build your course. In case of rain, you can find lots of good ideas for indoor obstacle courses on YouTube. The second step will be to decide what to use for your obstacles. Some classic choices are:

  1. Hurdles made from 2 upside-down buckets with a stick placed on top.
  2. Rocks as stepping-stones.
  3. Chairs with blankets draped over them to crawl under.
  4. Chalk directions including long jumps, hopscotch and balance challenges.
  5. Get creative – use what’s available to you (jump ropes, basketballs, etc)!

Your next step will be to set up a timer and run your course. You may want to make some adjustments as you go through, but once you begin recording your time you’ll want to keep the course consistent. Your goal will be to decrease your time without sacrificing accuracy or grace. Please remember to be careful and safe. Also, remember that you’ll need to put all of your supplies away when you have completed your training.

Feel free to send a video of you running your course to your teacher and be sure to submit your fitness log at the end of the week. Be sure to include not only your obstacle course physical activity, but also include other workouts you did throughout the week. As a reminder, I have listed our daily warm ups below that you can use throughout the trimester to loosen up your muscles before beginning any fitness routine.

Good luck and have fun!

Daily warm ups (10 seconds per stretch on each side):

  1. Hug Knee to Chest (right then left)
  2. Hurdler Stretch (right then left)
  3. Funky Frog
  4. Quad Pull (right then left)
  5. Lunge Stretch (right then left)
  6. Achilles Stretch (right then left)
  7. Arm Across Body (right then left)
  8. Back Scratch (right then left)
  9. 10 Push Ups
  10. Low or High Plank (alternate days)

April 19 (emailed to Students and Parents)

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to Distance Learning, Trimester 3, Alternative Sports and Games. What could be more alternative than learning Physical Education from home right?

To begin, I hope that you and your families are safe and healthy as we work through these extraordinary times. Although it may not be ideal, we will make the best of the situation and learn how to motivate ourselves to be active now so that we can be healthy for a lifetime.

Beginning Monday (April 20th), Remote Learning will be made available to you. Each week (Sunday night or Monday morning) moving forward, I will offer you resources to help you stay fit and active. I hope that you will take advantage of the activities that will be given over the next nine weeks to help you with your overall wellness, but feel free to participate in any other physical activity that you enjoy. Each week you will be required to submit a fitness log via Google Forms (see Mr. Gray’s website) to show the work you have accomplished for that week. The goal is to get at least 30 minutes of activity per day. Final Trimester grades will be Pass/Fail based upon how much activity you get each week. Each week will be worth five points in the gradebook (one point per day of activity/Monday-Friday). The deadline to hand in your fitness log is each Saturday by Noon. Fitness logs cannot be submitted after this window closes and are unable to be made up. As always, I ask that you challenge yourself, do your best, and have fun. 

Important things to remember:

Trimester 3 Grade is Pass/Fail

Trimester is 9 weeks

Each day is worth 1 point    

Each week is worth 5 points

Fitness Log due each Saturday by Noon

Late fitness logs will not be accepted

Please contact me if you have any questions via email as this will be our primary form of communication. I will respond to emails within 24 hours. Look for Week 1 activities on my website starting tomorrow morning. I look forward to working with you this trimester and excited for the challenges that lie ahead in this uncertain time.

Sincerely,

Mr. Gray
