Physical Education Curriculum Forum

pe.jpg

Hi everyone! Welcome to today’s homeschool curriculum forum where we’re talking all about physical education!   I’ve received quite a few questions about how we are liking Family Time Fitness. And I have to say that we still love it! I did a more formal review and giveaway for Family Time Fitness back in October, you can read it here. If you aren’t familiar with Family Time Fitness, they are a physical education program. They provide daily lesson plans as well as video tutorials if you need them. Most lessons can be completed with very little preparation. Although they do give daily lessons, we typically do it 2-3 times per week time allowing. I really love their focus on physical education, and even get reminder emails sent to my inbox to encourage me to continue on with our lessons. How are we doing? The kids are STILL loving the activities, and I like that they’re super easy to do without a lot of prep work on my time. I simply print my lesson plans as … [Read more...]

PE Activity Cards for Workboxes

One area I’ve neglected slightly this year is our physical education. I started with great intentions, but never really followed through with making a schedule. Since our kids do dance, gymnastics, swimming and t-ball through out the year, I thought that was enough. But after reading this post from Homegrown Mom, I was inspired! Yes, I know it’s half way through the year, but better late than never right! Click here to download the PE Activity Cards Staying active is so important and so easy to push aside, I’m guilty as ever! I really want to be more consistent and creative with our exercise. I also want to keep the activities different each day so we don’t get bored. I thought these cards would be an easy way to  get us moving with little to no thought on my part. So, I got busy and created some cute activity cards that we can use to guide our activities. I may put them in our workboxes, or if you notice, they just happen to be the same size and color as my Chore Chart cards! I … [Read more...]
