TAS Elementary Physical Education

"Physical Fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity".

Components of Body Movement Unit: Locomotor & Non-Locomotor, Space Awareness and Movement Patterns


Week 1 – 2 : Grade 1 to Grade 5 students started their Physical Education Class with the Components of Body Movement Unit. It is believed that learning the basic fundamental movement like walking, running, skipping, galloping, hopping, leaping, sliding and jumping are building blocks, necessary for more complex physical activities. Playing sports, exercising and dancing all require a command of simple fundamental body movement. Treasure Hunting, DVD Game, Locomotor and Non-locomotor combination are activities for this unit.

Week 3 – 4: Spatial Awareness and Vocabulary Cues. Spatial awareness is the ability of a child to understand where they are in relation to objects or where objects or structures are in relation to each other. It also refers to understanding how an object changes in relation to them when they move. As a result, a child will increase a sense of balance, flexibility and whole body strength.

And also, before the tests conducted, we identify the Body Mass Index (BMI) of every child to determine their health weight.

Grade 4: Lesson Overview


As the first quarter of the school year comes to a close, our ES PE program is continuing to encourage fun and fitness through physical activity and teamwork.  We are having a great time getting in shape and playing fun, challenging sports in class each day.  During the next two weeks, we focused on the Locomotor Skills and Non-locomotor skills foundation of the students and space awareness. After, we started physical fitness and endurance activities through the use of the Fitnessgram program and calculated the Body Mass Index (BMI) to assess and measure obesity or health risks of every student. The California State PE Standards that we will cover include: 1.6 Throw and catch an object underhand and overhand while avoiding an opponent. And 3.7 Sustain continuous movement for increasing periods of time while participating in moderate to vigorous physical activities.
