At the present I'm getting ready for my Fahperds 2012 presentation. I will be sharing ideas to work indoors when inclement weather does not allow us to enjoy the outdoors or our covered courts.
In school we have just finished our Y-Ties fundraiser and made a good amount of $$$$ to purchase new equipment. We have also just begun our soccer skills unit, just as we finish our Fall Fitnessgram tests.
My students sincerely love the Pacer test! It is surely their favorite! They have been improving each year and focus more on their jogging instead of competing against others. Not that competing is not good, but some try so hard to get to the opposite line before the others that they forget to "pace" themselves and end burnt out.
One of the most difficult tests to monitor is the Curl-ups, but I allow my students slight modifications in order to comply with the objective of letting them participate in the fitness test, learn from their strengths and weaknesses and establish their personal goals.
Now all I need is for the Central Florida weather to remember that we are in FALL, and that it needs to begin cooling off! We were melting today, in particular because of the high humidity. Oh well! Soon we will have cooler weather!
Till the next one!
