To the parents of my amazing students:
When your child comes home from school each day, please do not ask him or her, "What did you play in P.E. today?" Instead, ask, "what did you learn in P.E. today?"
Children learn best when they are given the opportunity to explore their world while moving. My students do not just play games. They learn something new each day.
In a quality physical education program, students learn:
- how to improve their overall fitness
- to perform a variety of skills
- to be responsible for their health and fitness
- how to set achievable goals
- to cooperate with others and accept responsibility for their own behavior
- to socialize with their peers
- and to be confident, independent, and exhibit self-control
Physical Education isn't just playing games. IT'S ABOUT LEARNING, TOO!
