Top Fitness Games and Activities. Inside this amazing resource are six fitness games I currently use in boot camp sessions and with my students in PE classes. I have designed each activity to achieve maximum participation and enjoyment for all involved. Since I have started using fitness games and challenges in my personal training boot camps session numbers have increased dramatically.

The reason for this is that everyone loves to challenge themselves individually or in a team environment. Sometimes fitness can become another every day chore, playing games provides a totally different atmosphere for all participants. Activities inside include: Monopoly FitnessUNO Fitness52 Pick UpWords With Friends Fitness ChallengeBingo FitnessBlackjack Fitness GameOver 60 other body weight challengers and games Each fitness game lasts for 30 to 45 minutes, which is perfect as that is the length of all my group fitness boot camp sessions.

Seizing the Moment: Can Game Sense Further Inform Sport Teaching in Australian Physical Education? Abstract Australia is progressively implementing a national curriculum for grades Kindergarten/Pre-school to Year 10. The need to foreground sport teaching and learning in school settings as part of this curriculum development was highlighted by the recent Australian Government report, The Future of Sport in Australia (Australian Government, 2009). The Ministerial Council for Education, Early Childhood Development and Youth Affairs (2010) has also indicated that student participation in quality physical education and sport will be a priority when the physical education curriculum is developed.

RichardsonLiza : 26 Sentence Stems For... Literacy and the NSW Literacy Continuum in PDHPE | PDHPE Curriculum, NSW Department of Education and Communities. The NSW Department of Education and Communities’ Literacy continuum K–10 identifies the literacy skills and understandings regarded as critical to literacy success. It maps how critical aspects develop through the years of schooling by describing key markers of expected student achievement. The Literacy continuum K–10 is for all teachers of all subjects from Kindergarten to Year 10.

The Literacy continuum K–10 is a powerful tool which all teachers can use to strengthen their knowledge of literacy and so deliver a quality program with a strong literacy focus to enhance learning opportunities for their students. In conjunction with the NSW syllabuses, the continuum assists teachers to integrate literacy into PDHPE. Each subject area has its own literacy requirements which students need to master if they are to maximise their achievement in that learning area.

Literacy demands in PDHPE There is a direct relationship between a student’s literacy skills and success in PDHPE. Like this: News. Friday, 15 November 2013 Volume 2: Learners and Learning in Physical Education In the previous blog I explored research around the inclusion of children with special educational needs (SEN) in physical education.

The blog asked if, as practitioners, we have miscalculated the differences between inclusion and integration and put our practices and programmes before our students. This week’s blog asks if we consider the nature and purposes of PE enough in our planning and subsequent teaching. Paper 43: Smith, A. & Parr, M. (2007/2012). My ‘take home’ message – the implications of the research on practice In reading this paper I was left to consider the possibility that students can ‘talk the talk’ around the purposes of PE (i.e. they understand what their teachers think PE is meant to be and what it should achieve) but as teachers we often fail to ‘walk the walk’ when it comes to making the same purposes evident in our programmes.

What are your knowledge and beliefs around physical education? HQ_PE_-_Outcomes__Contributions_Poster. P.E. Games - Dive Ball. Six strategies for improving learning in sport. My last blog entry offered a perspective on learning using, as a case study, fighting sports. But the basic principles apply to any skill learning situation.

In a nutshell, my argument was: 1) The best way to learn how to do something is to do it. 2) The closer practice activities resemble the full activity the better. 3) Just because you teach something does not mean that students will learn it. The most frequently asked questions by commentators on the article was "so what does this mean in practice? " 1) The warm up should be a part of the learning, not a preparation for it. Too many sessions begin with meaningless calisthenics that do not resemble the movements that will follow. My own observations suggest that many sessions begin with activities that could be transplanted into any number of different sports.

For example, hockey warm ups that do not involve a stick and a ball will not properly prepare the body, and will not engage the mind. 2) Effective learning builds on previous learning.

BLOG: Positive Pedagogy for Physical Education - ACHPER - The Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation Inc. 11th Jun 14 by Professor Richard L. Light, Faculty of Health, Federation University Australia I would feel reasonably comfortable in suggesting the importance that most physical education teachers place on their students is enjoying physical education classes and on them developing a positive attitude toward physical activity.

This was highlighted for me in Christina Curry’s recent two and a half year study on teacher responses to Teaching Games for Understanding (see, Curry & Light, 2014). Research and writing in positive psychology and some of my own research suggests that this joy arises from providing an appropriate level of challenge and positive, social, learning experiences involved in meeting those challenges. It arises from the same engagement, opportunities for achievement, meaning, positive emotions and relationships between learners (and between learners and the teacher) that Seligman (2012) argues promote positive wellbeing in life.

References Antonvosky, A. (1979). Light, R. Mobility – Teaching Games for Understanding.

This mobility lesson is for invasion games which include sports such as football (soccer), handball, basketball, hockey, etc. Cognitive: To be able to answer:”What was the tactical problem today?” “What is the technical principle we are using to solve this problem?” “What technical skills did we use to accomplish this?” What is the importance of running as soon as you pass the ball?

The #PhysEd Book Club | Network. 01/07/14 15:16 Categories: Network For most of us, summer has finally arrived and we get to spend a couple of months recharging our batteries and getting ready for the new school year. One of the things I enjoy most about the summer break is having a lot more time to read.

I feel like I have been slowly accumulating books on my bookshelf ever since Christmas... yet haven’t really had a chance to go through all of them! There’s no doubt that reading can be a great way to keep learning as a teaching professional and help inspire new ideas for our physical education programs. This summer, I’d like to invite you to join me in my reading and help start a new #PhysEd Book Club. 1. Joining the club is easy: all you have to do is join the #PhysEd Book Club Google+ Community. 2. Every 1st of the month, we will be starting a new book.

It comes amid concerns that competitive sports are becoming the preserve of privileged children attending private schools. Primary school teachers are usually generalists, and cover a wide range of subjects during their training. However, the new teachers will spend half of their training period focussed on PE. Candidates will be expected to have a degree in sport of “high personal achievement” in sporting pursuits. Some £360,000 of government funding will be set aside for the training.

It will lead to children developing a “lasting love of sport” rather than merely showing an interest during the World Cup and Wimbledon, ministers hope. The announcement comes just weeks after Ofsted warned that too many pupils are being denied the chance to take part in competitive sport by state schools who treat it as an "optional extra". In a new report, it said children's education was poorer if they were deprived of the chance to compete.
