About the Session

Target Audience:  K – 6 Elementary Generalist & Specialist Physical Education & Wellness Teachers 

Do you enjoy opportunities to gather with teachers to talk about great strategies to teach PE & Wellness?

Are you eager to unpack and talk about implementing the K-6 Physical Education & Wellness curriculum?

Do you want to grow your network of active, like-minded go-getters?  

This is for you!  This series will be responsive and designed based on the needs and ideas of the group.  Considerations will include designing learning plans to align with the PE & Wellness curriculum, discussing pedagogy in practice, drawing on the experiences and expertise of our community members, and of course, we will have some fun while we are at it! 

This BLENDED series is designed for all of you teachers who are also, coaches and parents and extra-curricular planners who are juggling schedules, getting up early and staying up late!  We will host after-school synchronous sessions to begin and end our series while offering asynchronous Google Classroom based experiences during the 5 weeks in between.  The best part of collaborative communities are the discussions and ideas that are shared within so this flexible model is sure to be the right fit for all who hope to join us.
