ELEMENTARY P.E. GAMEPLAN

Perseverance: The Olympics

It takes perseverance to reach a long-term goal or turn a big dream into reality. Our students are great at dreaming big, so this week we’re teaching them a character trait that will help them reach those dreams: Perseverance
We teach our students how to persevere by giving them challenges that will take a couple of times to get right. We teach them to persevere by focusing on what they learn from mistakes instead of the mistakes themselves.

Self-Control: Baseball


Little is more foreign to children than containing their anger. Even when they grow out of giving regular tantrums, feelings like anger and frustration can make them lose their cool, complete with tears and flailing and stomping. Our students don’t have to be captives of their emotions like this. For the good of society and the benefit of their future success, we want to teach them techniques to handle their stress or negative emotions.

Self-control can be taught, just like any skill. While we’re teaching them how to throw and run, we are also teaching them how to manage their thoughts and emotions.

Fair Play: Soccer

Without rules and boundaries, we don’t know what’s fair or unfair. We all have some innate sense of right and wrong. But without guidelines from our parents, teachers, and community, that sense of what’s right won’t turn into the correct actions.
Rules help to protect the rights of ourselves and others. When we respect the rules, it really means we’re respecting the rights of other people. If we don’t respect their rights, how can we expect them to respect our rights?
