Physical Education

Welcome to Physical Education

Rockaway Meadow School
Mr. H

 

Dear Students and Parents, 

I am excited to begin my journey with you at Rockaway Meadow School. The priority of our PE program is to build physical literacy among our children. Physical literacy has been defined by Mandigo, Francis, Lodewyk & Lopez, 2012 as “the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person.” 

I believe that developing physical literacy is a shared responsibility between school and home. Quality physical education is a time during the school day where a child can gain foundational knowledge about healthy behaviors and develop the motor skills needed for physical activity. The end result is to inspire and empower children to be physically active on their own time over a lifetime. 

In order to conduct a quality Physical Education program, students must be aware of and follow the rules of the gymnasium. 

Mr. H’s Gymnasium Rules for Success

  1. Safety First
    In order to have a safe experience students should wear comfortable clothing and athletic sneakers that support the ankle. (running sneakers)

  2. Golden Rule Treat others the way you want to be treated.
    As individuals, students will develop skills at different speeds. Our class is about taking learning risks and challenging our personal best each day.

  3. Try your Best
    Students are encouraged to embrace skills that may be challenging to them. In order to improve on any skill, maximum effort should be given.

Students will be participating in a wide variety of activities ranging from fitness concepts to movement concepts to skill based activities. Please check this page for updates as the curriculum unfolds throughout the year.  You can also follow @physedRMS on Twitter to see the action first hand.
