Welcome Back First Day of PE Will be August 18, 2014

Week 16 & 17 Dance!!















This week in physical education we are having too much fun with our dance unit. We are learning many popular party dances and next week (week 17) we will be learning some cultural dances from all over the world. It is always great to watch the students come in a little apprehensive at first, and then watch them come out of their shell as the class wears on. Some of the dances we are covering this week include:
1. Hokey Pokey
2. Chicken Dance
3. Cha Cha Slide
4. Macarena
5. YMCA
6. Any Turkey can Tango
7. Mr. Bones
8. Locomotion

Week 17 we will be learning dance from different cultures. We will be talking about diversity and talking about some dances that the students may have in their own culture. Some of these dances include:
1. Hava Nagilah (Israel)
2. Hukilau (Hawaii)
3. D’ hammerschmiedsgselln (Germany)

Some classes will get the opportunity to create their own personal dances and perform them with one another at the end of week 17. The Standard were are striving to meet this week is New Mexico state standard number seven which says, the student understands that physical activity provides opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, self expression and social interaction.
