Question Detail

In what ways can incorporate common core practices during physical education?

Feb 5, 2015 7:12pm

I have currently implementing student leaders, word of the weeks, and think pair shares. Does anyone have any other ideas that I can use while out in the field?

  • Physical Education
  • 1-6
  • Coaching / Common Core

      Math would be a great connection to PE. You could measure distances, compare meter vs. yard, etc. and have them figure out problems relating to the days activity (how many sets of x do we need in order to reach 100, etc.).

        Look into the speaking and listening standards, I usually pull from there.

          Include Career/College element to lessons! Most students do not realize how many careers exist in the field of Physical Education. A once a month guest speaker (Athlete/Physical Therapist/ Physical Trainer/College Team Manager....) would probably increase student engagement and get them thinking "bigger and broader".

            I would say perseverance. I'd used the basketball penalty shot line and determine who will practice that shot until they make it.

              Have students reflect on their performance after class, in writing. Student writing can then be used to:

              1. Create a GYMBLOG (just made that up) with photos, drawings, or other relevant visuals.

              2. Have a read-aloud of a reflection or two. They can be humorous or insightful.

              3. Share the writing with your administration as a way to document that you're using the Common Core.

              Our school's art teacher gave every student a small journal. Students use them to reflect on artists and methods. They love them!

              PS: Your current practices are great! Love that "word of the week (for gym)." I'm passing this idea on to our gym teacher.
