 Welcome to P.E.!
 
This is how your child should dress for PE at Meadow Lane Elementary.  Please remind your students to wear tennis shoes, shorts, pants or skorts but no dresses, skirts, sandals, flip-flops, gators, crocs and boots of any kind.  We are very active during this time. The students are constantly moving, performing various locomotor skills, dancing, throwing, catching and a number of other activities.  We ask that they come to class dressed appropriately because of safety reasons.  The tennis shoes they wear give them more support and are less likely to come off while running or causing them to fall because of slipping off their feet.  We are constantly getting down on the floor so a dress would not be appropriate for that.  If your child is having problems remembering the day they have PE, please remind them so they can come prepared to participate.  Just as the classroom teacher need certain supplies for your child to be successful; we need your child to come to Physical Education dressed appropriately to participate to be successful and safe.
 
Encourage your children to be active every day for 30-60 minutes.  Limit the amount of their TV time and have your children go outside and play!
 
 
 
Dates To Remember 

4-4-16
We started our Physical Fitness Posttest this week for our 3rd and 4th graders. We will    be testing our students in the mile run (test endurance), sit-ups (abdominal strength), pushups (upper body strength), shoulder stretch (flexibility), trunk lift (core strength), and height and weight. We will work on this unit until we complete all areas to be tested.
K-2 will be working on tossing and catching with a partner, this week in a game called Throw and Go. They will be tossing all sorts of objects ex. pigs, turtles, chickens(not real ones silly)and a host of other objects we do not normally toss. It makes it very interesting and fun.
 
Health Class

Week 1. We introduced our next unit in Health the week before Spring Break. The lesson covered the effects of smoking on our bodies. We will be spending the next 3-4 weeks covering this unit. Students will read a book titled, "Not In Here Daddy". This is a story about a family who tries to get their daddy to stop smoking. It is a great message to us all about smoking.
Week 2. We talked more about short and long term effects of smoking and smokeless tobacco. We watched a video titled, "Smoking Stinks". It explains the way a person who smokes body is different from a person who does not.
Week 3. We will see photos of different tobacco products and talk about how tobacco companies use advertising to try and get you to try their products. We will see some photos of how tobacco effects the body.
