P.E. at UMS

PE at UMS gives students the opportunity to explore their physical potential in an active setting. During the school year all students will engage in a variety of units that involve individual, partner and group tasks. Students will be expected to actively engage, collaborate with peers and have a positive attitude! My goal is for students to improve their self-esteem/confidence, become advocates for their personal health and improve their psychomotor domain, all while having fun!

Rolling into Gymnastics

Hello!  Before the February vacation we wrapped up our Gymnastics Unit.  Students had a blast exploring all the potential gymnastics had to offer.  They also became very comfortable using flat mats, balance beams and wedge mats!  Check out a few pictures of all of our FUN!!!

Elvis Lives in UMS PE!

Movement activity where partners pretend they have different body parts glued together then move to Elvis Presley's "Stuck on You"  cooperatively around around the Gym. They usually end up dancing together naturally and don't even realize that they are.

Raw Hide Theme Warm Up

2nd Graders learn about the many kinds of horses and how they are used. We focus in on Western Horses and how they are used with cattle. We explored what cattle are, and why they were important. We first practice moving like a horse using three speeds moving to 8 counts. Then we bring it all together by using Raw Hide Theme by The Blues Brothers to move together around Gym. Great Fun they love it!
