    April 6th

    Hello Students, I hope you and your families are all safe!

    Lets keep doing our part by staying home and following the social distancing rules if we must leave the house.

    I know sometimes it is hard, but we must ALL try to find time to get some physical activity. This goes for students AND their parents! I have not been doing a great job of this myself, so im going to join you in these exercises. (im not ready to video myself exercising yet, although im sure everyone could use a good laugh!) I am also going to include a few really easy games you can play with your parents or siblings. These games require no equipment and are probably more for the younger students but can still be fun family time, while getting some exercise! 

    Exercises: Kids Workout #1- in these exercises the guy

    exercises for 40 seconds, rest 20 seconds, then on to the next exercise.

    - marching

    - “star jumps” - jumping jacks

    - running in place

    - squats

    - climb the rope

    Activity: These are 3 very simple games that require no equipment and also allow for social distancing. I will add a link at the bottom with other games that need no equipment.

    High Jump Competition

    This simple game is a great way for kids to have some fun while testing their athleticism.  Have the children split into groups of two and stand next to a brick wall.  Have them jump as high as they can, touching the highest brick they can reach with their hand.  Each child gets 3 jumps.  

    Captain’s Orders

    Captain’s Orders is the perfect choice for a competitive group of kids who want to outdo each other.  It can really test your student’s endurance levels and improve their fitness.  The game begins with one person being nominated to be the “Captain”.  They must give out commands to the crew (the rest of the PE class).  The Captain is limited to a set of commands, which you can alter if you have specific fitness objectives for the class to reach.  You could use a mixture of fun commands and physically demanding ones, like:

    Captain’s coming
    The crew must salute the captain and stand at attention
    Run to starboard/port
    The crew must run to the left (port) or right (starboard) sides of the room and touch the wall.
    Scrub the deck
    The crew must do 10 pushups
    Man the lifeboats
    The crew will perform 10 sit-ups while moving their arms like oars
    You could have the crew members stand at attention after completing each task, which will make the more competitive students attempt to beat each other.  After a few minutes, change captains so a few children get a chance to be in command.

    Simon Says

    This is another classic game that young children love.  It is easy to incorporate it into a PE class and everyone will know the rules.  

    Start by either choosing a player to be “Simon” or by nominating yourself to play this role (usually better as you can then choose appropriate PE activities).  The students must follow the directives given by “Simon” as long as he starts each one with “Simon says…”.  If a student accidentally carries out a directive that does not start with “Simon says…” they are out of the game.You could mix up fun directives like “Simon says bark like a dog” with “Simon says, do 5 pushups” to get the PE component into the game.  The winner of the game is the last person who has successfully followed all of Simon’s orders.  They get to become the next “Simon”.

    Many more games with no equipment here:

    conclusion: Remember STAY HOME, STAY SAFE! I will try to find the courage to video myself exercising or playing a game for my next post.
