If you have any of the equipment (frisbee, ball, jump rope, balloon, items to strike with: bat, hockey stick, tennis racket, pickleball paddle, etc.), you can practice reviewing any of the skills we have worked on in PE or the skills that we plan to introduce in PE class this year. You can also get creative by using other items at home if you do not have the appropriate equipment. Examples include: rolled up socks as an object to throw, using a t-shirt as an object to underhand toss up and catch, using a balled up newspaper as an object to underhand toss, using a broom as an implement to strike. BE SAFE….and creative with equipment!
Locomotor Movements: There are 8 locomotor movements we all know. A great way to practice these is by creating your own “obstacle course” or “path” using all these movements. Get some chalk and have fun! Locomotor Obstacle Course example
Underhand Throwing(Tossing), Overhand Throwing and Catching: If you have space in your yard and it’s safe to go outside, try to practice throwing and catching with a family member with a ball or a frisbee. You could even throw for force, “make thunder” towards a wall or fence that is safe to throw at.
Striking: (awesome activity for K-2nd Grade)
Dribbling: If you have a basketball or playground ball, practice some of the ball handling drills and challenges that we plan on working on in PE.
Jump Rope: If you have a jump rope, you can practice some of the Single Jump Rope Tricks we plan on learning in PE, or if you have a sibling or family member you could even try out some of the Partner Tricks we plan on learning!
