October P.E. Plans

Remember when you learned how to jump rope or hula hoop?

I do.  Second grade...after two years of trying.  Let's be honest, right now hundreds of students here can hula better than me.

Remember the feeling when you finally could do the skill?

Recently, the first graders were taught the "tricks" to being able to jump rope and hula hoop.  They also had the opportunity to practice and show their stuff!  For most first graders at this point in the school year, it is tough (yours truly couldn't do it until second grade).  Many are excited and nervous.  Some get easily frustrated.

The lesson here is to keep trying.  If you quit, you will never do it.  If you keep trying, you WILL be able to do it.  And boy, when you finally do it........!!!

One of the many joys of being a P.E. teacher is seeing the pure joy and excitement a child has when they finally achieve something they previously thought to be incredibly hard or impossible.  Priceless!!!

Wow, and the wonders it does to confidence and how a child handles the next difficult task they encounter!  (more pics at end of the post)
