When buying school shoes, please consider running/athletic type shoes for your child. Encourage your child to wear running type shoes on PE day.These are the safest shoes for the gym. The proper shoes also allow a student to perform at his or her best. Athletic shoes are also safest at recess!
Help Restock the PE Equipment Room!
Bethel PE students are in need of new equipment to use in the gym. Over the years, the balls have become worn to the point of not holding air. They need to be replaced. I would like to ask your family to consider donating sport equipment to PE class. Below are suggested sizes and types of balls that we use in PE.
Items to consider purchasing
Nerf footballs: junior size
Basketballs: size 28.5, junior size, or mini size
Soccer balls: size 4
If we receive more than we need in PE, extra donated balls will be distributed to classrooms to use at recess.
All donated equipment should be sent to Mrs. Dobbins in the gym.
Thank you for supporting the Bethel PE department!
Mrs. Dobbins-PE teacher
Please continue to encourage your child to wear running type shoes to PE. These are the safest shoes for the gym. The proper shoes also allow a student to perform at his or her best.Encourage your child to work on his/her manipulative skills which include throwing, catching, kicking, dribbling, and striking (hitting) a ball, for example. Have your child practice "crossing the midline." Learning to cross the midline can potentially help with activities such as reading, writing, concentrating, catching a ball, and riding a bike. Examples of crossing the midline would be: (from standing position) touching your right hand to your left toe (switch sides), touching your left elbow to your raised right knee (switch sides), overhand throwing a ball (make sure to step with the opposite foot), and learning to skip. It is also great if kids practice gross motor skills that require alternating hands and feet such as jumping rope and jumping jacks. We participate in the PACER run assessment in PE. Fourth and fifth grade students will chart their goals and scores on slips of paper. Encourage students to improve their cardiovascular fitness outside of school. Students will then see the rewards of hard work when their scores increase. Begin by working on jogging at a slow to medium pace for extended periods of time.Children should "Play 60" meaning that children should play 60 minutes each and every day!Mrs. DobbinsOur PE K-2nd grade Class ExpectationsBe a good sportKeep all body parts to myselfRespect others and equipmentMove carefullyListen and follow directionsGive my best effortOur PE 3rd-5th grade Class ExpectationsAlways think safetyRemember to listen and follow directionsSupport others and be a good sportParticipate give 100%Kindness given and kindness returned
