Large Class Hacks Presentation Notes
Tips, Tricks and Strategies for Large Class Sizes
Hey PE Friends!
Below are the slides from the presentation – Thanks for your attention, I hope it was helpful!
Every game, warm-up, challenge and activity on this site has been tested by our resident PE specialist. Has been teaching physical education at the elementary school level for 7 years, and will make sure that we post only the best of the best. Warm Up PE Games All of these games are designed to be played for between 5 and 10 minutes at the beginning or end of a PE period. When playing tag games, I like to use a specific colour dodgeball (ours is the “Evil Red Ball”), to distinguish who is “It.”. Warm Up Activities NOTES: I ALWAYS put a sign on the gym door where the students enter for P.E. The sign tells them the name of the warm up we are doing. I also try to greet them at the door as they are coming in, and make sure students have gym shoes. This procedure allows students to get moving the moment they come to P.E.! Tie after 10: If needed, you can say a game is a tie after 10 flips. For a tie, after players have shaken hands, fist-bumped or high fived and said “good game,” they both jog one time around and find new partners. Change the exercise: Change the jog/jumping jacks to pushups, squats, curlups or anything you want. When my kids walk into their Physical Education class, our routine is to get into a quick warm-up or instant activity. After that we do a little stretching (Pretty much the same routine each day) at our Home Base Spots while I take attendance and give any needed announcements and then get into our lesson for the day.
