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

Week 8 :Bowling

This week in PE we are turning the gym into a bowling alley. All students will get the opportunity to bowl at Tiger Lanes. Before we get to rolling we will warm up with jump rope to get our heart rates up as we jump for 10 minutes.

After our warm-up I will be explaining the importance of a proper grip, stepping with the opposite foot, and releasing the ball low in order to get a nice roll. This will be building on our previous unit in which we covered underhand throwing. The rolling technique is very similar and we even use the same cues of facing your target, stepping in opposition, and “tick tock.” Older students will keep track of their games and have their own score card while the younger students will just be introduced to the basics. We have different size bowling balls and equipment in order to modify for all ages and skill levels. It’s going to be a great week!!
