This module is intended to assist teachers with classroom management and build excitement for your physical education program. It includes activities that are focused on helping reinforce concepts such as cooperation, teamwork, and leadership within physical education classes. The activities included are some of your OPEN favorites that we have updated with additional academic language and activity procedures to assist with welcoming students into your classes. These activities can be used in the beginning of the school year, or anytime you welcome students back after holidays or breaks.
The activities included reinforce responsible behaviors and how to successfully work with classmates. Students are given the opportunity to explore movement in a fun and engaging environment where everyone can feel welcomed and successful. This allows students to participate in social engagement and build connections with their classmates that can extend beyond physical education.
