Mr. Parker

This is certainly an unsettling time, but one where health and fitness are more at the forefront of our thoughts than ever.  It is important that our students stay physically active.   Please limit screen time and be sure to get out and MOVE.  Below are links to an activity I designed to help in this endeavor.

What do I wear?       Students MUST wear sneakers that tighten with laces or Velcro straps.  Slip on shoes should be avoided as they can slip of a students foot when kicking or running.  Students should wear clothing that allows for free and easy movement.  Students wearing dresses or skirts should wear leggings or shorts underneath.  If a student has class in the morning he/she may want to have a sweat shirt as it will be cool.  For safety reasons, students should not wear metal or beaded necklaces or bracelets, watches, or earrings that hang off of the ear lobes.                                                                                                               

What is expected?       Students are expected to be good citizens, students are expected to put forth effort, students are expected to participate in a safe and respectful manner.

What is the structure of a class?   Class will usually consists of 6 components, a warm up game or activity, a dynamic* stretch, fitness activity, lesson focus, cool down (static* stretch), and closure.  The warm up is an activity or exercise of light to moderate intensity designed to get muscles ready for more intense activity.  The dynamic stretch is designed to improve range of motion at various joints to prepare the body for intense exercise.  The fitness activity will be exercises designed to address specific fitness components (strength, endurance, aerobic fitness).  The lesson focus will address specific motor skills, manipulative skills, and understanding of various games and activities.  The cool down will bring the students back down to a lower intensity (usually a static stretch).  The closure is a brief summary of the primary objectives of the lesson, usually a question and answer session.

* dynamic stretching is a type of stretch that involves students moving through ranges of motion.  Static stretching is a type of stretching which involves holding particular positions for a period of time.
