Welcome to Physical Education with Miss Abbey!
Physical education is an organized instructional period for physical development and coordination for all students from Preschool through Grade Eight. We begin each class by reviewing our agenda which lists our warm-up activity, the skills of the day, and a game. Our Physical Education Curriculum follows the N. H. S.H.A.P.E America Standards. The curriculum includes hand-eye coordination, large body movement, body awareness, spatial awareness, fitness training, and social skills. Children are taught sportsmanship, being a team player, and the value of physical activity for their health.
Students should come prepared for Physical Education by wearing their proper Phys. Ed. uniform, a pair of sneakers, and bring a water bottle!
This Month in Physical Education
This month we are focusing on fitness! Students in grades 1-8 will begin fitness testing. Fitness testing at Mount Saint Mary Academy is based on individual goals and not about meeting National data. Since everybody and every BODY is different we want your child to focus their efforts on themselves and being the best they can be.
Students will learn proper form during exercise and learn basic muscles in their body and how they move.
