The JUNE Fitness Calendar has been posted. Please click on that tab on the left to download or print.
Please remember to email coach your 2 Week Physical Activity Logs.
There is a new assignment posted for everyone to do on their P.E. Day. Information about VIRTUAL FIELD DAY is there.
I will be available by email, Monday through Friday (9:00-12:30), for any questions or suggestions. Remind your students to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds and remember to cough or sneeze into their elbow and not their hands.
It is important that our students stay physically active in order to keep healthy. It is recommended that students get 60 minutes of physical activity a day. Taking your student for a long walk is an excellent way of getting some exercise. Remember to practice social distancing. Stair climbing is another excellent exercise. Each time your students come to class they do the following exercise routine:
- 10 Jumping Jacks
- 10 Shoulder Shrugs
- 10 Arm Circles going forwards/10 Arm Circles going backwards
- 10 Squats
- 30 seconds seated hamstring stretch
- 30 seconds V sit stretch (right, left and center)
- 30 seconds groin stretch (sitting with bottoms of feet together)
- 10 push ups or a 30 second plank
- 10 crunches
- 30 seconds invisible jump roping
- 10 Burpees
- 10 Mountain Climbers
I'm going to ask all students to keep track of their physical activity using the log on my Assignments page, and send it to me at the end of two weeks.
