At AES Physical fitness:
It’s the experience,not the score
It’s the process,not the product
Fitness activities and skills are experienced
It’s a part of every lesson
Kids learn how to evaluate their fitness.
Every year,earlier in the year we do our fitness testing baseline data collection.The students were taught the different components of fitness: flexibility, cardiorespiratory endurance,muscular strength.Once they had mastered those concepts,students go through a series of fitness tests to give them an idea of their current level of fitness.
The fitness test was a lot of fun and the students enjoyed participating in it.
Here is the template that was shared with all middle school kids through google drive.All the kids have this template in their iPad.Once the students complete their test,they add their scores on to their template.
This is a good time for me to go over their results with each class.I talk to them about their results and how they feel about their fitness.
Sit and Reach:Flexibility
Sit ups (1 Min): Muscular strength
Push ups(1 Min ):
Last 10 min of class time was spent on focus on the student’s goal.They had to analyze their videos and identify areas of improvement.
The difference between winning and succeeding.(John Wooden Ted Talk)
Our swimming unit guides students to refine their four basic swim strokes.
Freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke. Assessment is part of everyday teaching and learning.
Invasion involve controlling an object and keeping away from an opponent and moving into open space to score.
Hula Hoop HutHula Hoop Castle
We started the climbing wall unit with some team building activities. The goal of the activity was build a free standing hula-hoop castle and then one team member must crawl inside the hut. The Castle is built by laying the first hoop on the ground,then 2 hoops on a 45 degree angle touching at the top. The other one hoops are placed at 45 degree with a support of 90 degree hoop. Final hoop is placed at the top to finish the Castle.
Hula Hoop Castle ball
Set up : Split the class into two teams each occuping one side of the gym.On each side behind the end line place three “castles”.
Equipment Needed: Hula Hoops and dodge balls.
Object: The object of the game is to try and throw a dodge ball to knock over the other team’s castles.The both teams are trying to defend their castles from being knocked over.When one team loses all three castles the game is over.
Teams are not allowed to reset their castles if they are partially knowed over.
Two different colored hula-hoops are needed for each circle.Student form a circle, facing inwards.Every one joins hands around the circle.Two people in the circle hold the two hoops between them,(so that the hoops are now resting on the top of their joined hands.) The challenge is to pass the two hoops in opposite directions around the circle with out ever unclasping hands. On color hoop goes in one direction, and the other color hoop in the direction.The hoops cross in the middle and keep going so that each color hoop ends up where the other hoop began.The faster circle to do this wins.
Any base Baseball
Equipment :Rubber ball and bases.
Divide the group into two teams . The game is played on a regular softball field. Home plate is a regular base. The other base are 1st,2nd and 3rd base and on the pitcher’s mound.There are no outs. Everyone on the batting team will have one turn at bat before the team rotate.The batter goes up to bat at home plate.The pitcher roll the ball to batter and batter tries to kick the ball anyplace within the boundaries.The batter then tries to run as many bases as possible and get safe before the fielding team gets the ball to the pitcher.The batter is safe when he/she is standing on the base and to score runs, the runner must run all the way from 3rd base to first base to be safe and score one run.Base runners continue to advance and score runs until they become out or their inning at bat is completed.
More than one runner can stand on any base.
Runs are scored when the base runners touch home plate and run to first base before being tag with the ball.Because home plate is not a safe for runners.
A fly ball does not automatically get the batter out.
The play is stopped when someone from the fielding team catches the ball.
If the base runner is not on the platehe/she can be tag with the ball.
Bumpity,Bump, Bump. Bump.
Give five min to mingle around time the know the names of each kid.Once the names are known all the students stand in a circle.The students must know the names of the students on either side of them. One student starts the game standing in the middle of circle. Middle person goes up to a student and says,either you, mine ,right or left.(Name ).. Bumpity,Bump.Bump Bump.”
The student then has to say the name of the student before the middle student finishes saying Bumpity,Bump.Bump Bump.”
If the student says the name before the middle student Bumpity,Bump.Bump Bump.”then they stay where they are. But if they are slow then they become the student in the middle. After some time change postions in the circle and add two middle persons.
Rock papers scissors capture the chicken
Group students in teams of 3 or 4
Spread out in groups across the base line and at each end of the gym each group must line up across from a group at the other end of the gym
On the go the first person from each end race towards each other, stop when the meet at rubber chicken and have a game of rock paper scissors
winner advances with the rubber chicken and keeps running towards the other end of the gym and a “new” player runs out to stop them from advancing
player that didn’t win runs back to the back of their original line
when the players meet another game ensues
winner advances, running towards opposite end of the gym with the rubber chicken keeps continuing like this to win the round or game a player must get to the opposite baseline or end of the gym with the chicken can be quick or can take awhile depending on which side wins games!
Happy New year hope every one had a great time and have recharged for stronger new year
Well… the past week was …an interesting one. Unfortunately,the air quality was such that we had no-outside-activity day.
We played speedball in which we incorporate skills of handball,basketball and soccer.
The aim is to score points by aiming for different nets and baskets.We use rubber ball.
Points to remember: 3 steps and 3 seconds with the ball and dropped ball turns to he game of soccer and can pick ball up from soccer to handball.
How to score points for your team
3 points-A basketball shot made from inside the basketball key.
2 points- A soccer kick from inside the 3point line.
1 points- A handball throw from outside 3 point line.
