For the past three weeks a few Tiger parents have been meeting on Wednesday mornings to get a 45 minute work out in before taking on the rest of their day. They are actively participating in “Tiger Boot Camp”. The group is slowly growing. We outside have even added Friday to the mix as well. What a great way to demonstrate being physically active to the younger generation. GO TIGER PARENTS!!!

Students are learning the game of volleyball. They are learning how to bump (forearm pass), set (volley) and spike the ball for a “kill”. All classes are also learning how about rotation and game play. Volleyball is a fun activity for all ages.
It is great to be back for the 2012-2013 school year. The students are excited for another year of PE. It is important for all of the students to bond together and create a strong community, so all of the classes participated in some team building activities during the first week.
All classes have just completed a tennis unit. The students learned about the lines of the tennis court, how to score and several types of swings in tennis.
They even played against others in the class in a game of mini tennis that work on each student’s accuracy.
The students have started using pedometers in PE class. Pedometers count how many steps the using is taking. The students think its so cool to be wearing the pedometers because it tracks how many steps they are taking. It is awesome to see them moving more and checking to see if their step count went up. After each class the students log their data on a form that collects their number of steps taken, distance traveled, and approximate calories burned for the period.
The climbing ropes were installed on Monday of this week. As soon as the ropes were put up, the students started to climb them like they were never gone. Many of the students were excited to have the ropes back to climb or just do flips. The climbing ropes requires a tremendous amount of upper body strength. There have been several students that had never climbed the rope before. They have been practicing and now they can reach the top. Great Job to those who have been practicing. It truly goes to show that with practice, you are able to accomplish any task.
Today was a fun day in PE classes. We played several team building games and activities. As you can see by the pictures, the students were having a lot of fun working together and completing the task at hand.
