Welcome to the 3-4 section of my web page. Here you will find information about what your child will be doing in class and class expectations.
Spark Curriculum We will be using activities from the SPARK Physical Education program. SPARK (Sports, Play, and Active Recreation for Kids) is an “Exemplary Program” of the U.S. Dept. of Education. SPARK PE is a unique program designed to help teachers like myself lead activities that are inclusive, highly active, integrate academic and wellness concepts, and are fun for all students. Additionally, instructional units are designed to develop students’ motor, cognitive, and social skills.
This is the “new PE” you may have read about. Students won’t waste time waiting in lines for a turn, be a target in a dodgeball game, or be chosen last for a team. All students will have many opportunities to practice and participate in high levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity. Everyone will have the opportunity to find success and feel good about themselves in SPARK PE.
