PE in Second Grade
The Mirman Physical Education Department emphasizes guiding students toward being physically fit individuals, provides an experience tailored to each student's respective abilities, and advocates well-developed social-emotional skills.
In Second Grade, students continue to reinforce fitness skills development and are introduced to FitnessGram Standards. Students will experience dynamic warm-ups that will help them to improve on their fitness skills. They are also introduced to sports-related skills to build their personal skills in specific sports. Students will practice:
- Applying fitness techniques and comparing to FitnessGram Standards.
- Introduction of dynamic flexibility.
- Working in pairs and learning to appreciate differences in others.
- Chasing, fleeing, and moving away from others in a constantly-changing environment.
