Mr. Bridgewater Physical Education and Health
Good Monday Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to take advantage of the beautiful weather we had! I decided to try something a bit different for P.E for the next two weeks. I want to try to focus on students having fun while engaging in physical activity. Here is a link to a Google Doc that has many dance along playlists and mind-body activities. Students have the option to do any of the activities listed in the doc. Students may also email me and let me know which activites they did and enjoyed, or how many of the mind-body activites they were able to do! Have a look and give a few a try! :-) Email me with any questions -->
Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy! Here is a link to a small packet that has a planned week of physical activity ideas and some other activites. Have a look if you're searching for physical activity ideas. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
4/27/20- Good Monday morning, everyone! Hope you had a great weekend.
The weather for this week looks like a combination of good and not-so-good; I know the sunny and warm days can make it easier to get outside and be active, so I always encourage that if possible! If stuck indoors, there are a lot of options for physical activity as well. I will post links for ideas for physical activity indoors and out.
On a side note, I put together a BINGO board that can maybe give your child some ideas for physical activity, both inside and outside.
**These activities can be used in the PE fill-in calendar as well!!**

Monday 4/20/20- Welcome back, everyone! I hope you had a restful and enjoyable April vacation.
I wanted to try to streamline how I am providing resources and information for everybody. As of right now, I am going to be posting the same fill-in calendar every two weeks that can be filled in with any physical activity of yours and your children's choosing (it can be anything!)
In the calendar document you will find suggestions for physical activity as well as links to websites that are there as well. For the middle schoolers, this will also be on Google Classroom. If possible, please send me the filled in calendar at the end of the 2 weeks (May 1st).
Once again, please email me with any questions or concerns.
Hope you are well ♥ -Ms.Samperi

4/8/20- Good morning everyone! I hope everybody is doing well and staying healthy (mentally and physically)!!! I just wanted to reiterate, everything I post here is optional and is there to use at your discretion, whatever works for you and your family on that given day/week. These are just suggestions for physical activity, I know everyone can tend to get a little stir crazy being inside, especially when the weather does not permit physical activity outdoors. Please feel free to scroll through this page and find something that works for your child(ren). I am going to attach a link to a video that is just a simple overview of what you can do at home that will hopefully benefit your child(ren) and make physical activity enjoyable.
Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I am happy to help in any way that I can, and will continue to support you and your child(ren) throughout these unprecedented times. Take care! -Ms. Samperi
PE At Home --> if it does not open by clicking on it, hold the "control" button and right click on it, select "open in a new window".
4/6/20- Good sunny Monday morning! It's going to be a beautiful weather day to spend outside so I am attaching an outdoor scavenger hunt for your children to try, if they would like to! You can come up with your own box if one does not work for you and you child(ren). Feel free to print it out, if you are able and send me a picture once you are done!
Remember to use the fill-in calendar this week too. Enjoy the sunshine and warmth today!
4/3/20- Hi everyone! I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I would love to see what you and your children are doing at home for physical activities, health and wellness! If you would like, you can send me pictures to my email and I can include them in the newsletter for next month! I hope everybody is staying healthy, have a great weekend!
4/2/20- List of links for at-home physical activity through YouTube:
Happy Thursday everyone! I found this great YouTube channel called "Active Kids 2.0". Here is a brief description:
Welcome to Active Kids 2.0 #AKids Fitness channel! Coach Larissa Maloney is former professional athlete, volleyball coach, fitness instructor and podcast host. Every day she will bring you a NEW workout to do at home with no equipment! These workouts will be for KIDS of ALL AGES and their families! Let's use this time to have fun, get energized & stay active during this new transition of life!
*Here is the link- Active Kids 2.0 you can subscribe to the channel so it will alert you every day when the workout will begin. Work outs are about 25-30 minutes, but you can do as much or as little as you would like. Give it a try! -Ms. S
4/1/20- I hope everyone is staying healthy and well, and trying to enjoy the sunshine while it's here! I came across a fun "sock challenge" that I posted to Google Classroom as well. All you need are a couple of pairs of socks and an open mind to complete this challenge! Make sure to encourage your child to keep track of the points. Once they're done, they can send me a quick email with their score (if they choose to), or they can try a couple times to see what their highest score is! Have fun and good luck!
3/31/20- Good morning! I came across another great resource. It's from SHAPE America (Society of Health and Physical Educators). It is meant to be a print-out packet for students to use at home, however it is still useful for suggestions and ideas. *The 3rd page has a great physical activity calendar for the month of April!! Feel free to check it out, and let me know if you have any questions.
3/29/20- Hi everyone! I made a Google Doc that will help students stay active and engaged in physical education. There is a calendar that students will fill in for the next two weeks, instructions are included. I will be posting it to Google Classroom for grades 6-8 as well. Hope everyone is well and healthy! PE Google Doc
3/26/20- Good morning! I know I have been posting a lot of resources for you to use, but you're welcome to use any or none, I just want to make sure that there is plenty of information for you and your children to use during this time. Here is a link to a Google Doc that has numerous PE links depending on the grade level. You will find the grade level highlighted in purple, so choose the one that works best for you. Hope everyone is staying well!
PE E-Learning Links (if for some reason it doesn't open when you click on it, hit control and right click on the link and hit "open in link in new tab"). E-mail me with any questions!
3/25/20- Hello all! Here is a link to a suggested at-home calendar to help keep your children physically active at home. You're welcome to create your own activity if the one given does not work for your child. Check out the daily choices as well. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. https://openphysed.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Monthly-PE-at-Home-Calendar-Jason.pdf
- One more resource: There is a YouTube channel called "P.E. With Joe" and he is hosting a live "P.E. Class" everyday. It has been very popular with elementary and middle school students! If you are interested, all you have to do is go to YouTube, or Google, and type "P.E. with Joe" and it should come right up. I belive he starts everyday at 9:00 am, but if you cannot make it at that time, the videos will be saved on his page. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
3/24/20- Good morning! I found another great resource that is a combination of both PE and Health and is a great tool for suggested activities. There are a lot of activities to choose from and I believe it can be customized as well, so if one area does not work for you, feel free to do something else! Exercise and Healthy Living Sheet - Give it a try! -Ms. Samperi
3/23/20 COVID-19 UPDATE:
Hello everyone! I will be using this area to post updates and resources you can use to keep you physically active during this time. Here is a link you can use that has a lot of physical activity ideas, activity breaks, and health & nutrition activities as well. Grades 6-8 can find more information on their Google Classroom, so I will be using this website more so for the younger grades.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and be checking this website for more information and suggested activities in the near future! Stay healthy and well! - Ms.Samperi
Throughout the school year all of the PE classes will shift from unit to unit focusing on the individual skills and strategies of different sports and activities. There is always a warm up activity to begin each class. There is also a large emphasis on sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect in my classroom.
To ensure your child can safely participate in PE they must be wearing sneakers. Students in the past have worn sandals or boots to school and packed a pair in their backpacks on the days they have gym. For students in the middle school (6-8), they must also bring a change of clothes and should be bringing in a stick of deodorant. If the problem persists with an individual they will not be allowed to participate. The following are the days that each grade has PE.
Grades 6-8 have health 2-3 times a week for the entire school year. Each grade has a separate syllabus but the same expectations. Students were to return the syllabus signed so there is no confusion on grading or the units being covered. We are using the curriculum from the connect-ed online program. If there are every any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
