PHYSICAL EDUCATION WARM UP
 

The limited number of lessons with the students of Daniel Boone School has led me to use one uniform warm up that all students do from first grade to eighth grade.  The warm up is quick and the students from fourth grade and up lead the warm up without the teacher's guidance so that the students will practice leadership.  After the warm up the students in fourth grade and up provide feedback to the student leader in regards to what he or she did well and what he or she needs to improve on in order to become a better leader.

Lesson Plan Outline

Warm Up

Grade K - 3

Grade 4 - 8 (Ball Inclusive Warm Up)

  1. Jumping Jacks

  2. Push ups 1

  3. Sit-ups 1

  4. Cross your arm 2

  5. Hug your knee 3

  6. Straddle Stretch 4

The fitness workout will be based on a full body workout where the students learn to recognize muscle fatigue and learn how to challenge themselves with new exercises that will prepare them for real life challenges and address their own fitness goals.

Students in kindergarten through fourth grade continue with additional locomotor skills as an extended part of the warm up.  This portion of the warm up is a more functional warm up, which also serve as a tool to improve essential locomotor skills that are required for future success in physical activity, sports, and leisure activity.

1 Same number as homework assignment suggested for the month. Grade 1 begins with 2 push-ups and 2 sit-ups, and increase with 1 push-up and 1 sit-up per month until 8 push-ups and sit-ups are done.
