NOVEMBER/DECEMBER PE NEWS 2015
I attended the Fall 2015 New Hampshire AHPERD Conference in Waterville Valley in
November. This year’s conference focus was “A Sharp Mind, An Active Body, A Healthy
Person”. At this conference I am always happy to meet with colleagues in the Physical
Education and Coaching profession. Here we collaborate and share ideas in teaching,
technology, assessments, standards and physical activities. I am amazed at the new
technology used today in PE and how we can make our teaching better. It is my hope that I can
incorporate more technology into my lessons as I move into the 2016 year.

underhand throw, overhand throw, and catching using a variety of practice opportunities using
different sizes and shapes of balls. The Common Core Shape America Standards include:
PE classes have now moved on to basketball skills and manipulative skills. We are currently
working on the basketball dribble. Many of the students are very good at this!!! Please remember your child’s PE day and make sure sneakers are with them for class. This is important for many of the activities that we do. Jump Rope For Heart will take place during PE classes February 15-17. Jump Rope for Heart letters and envelopes will come out in January.
Have a healthy and active winter season!
