Active Kids Make Healthy Kids
Dear students and family members,
Here at SFL we are working hard to provide resources for your child or children in every subject while our schools are closed. I have put together a variety of resources to help you and your families stay physically active during this time. It is recommended that individuals be active for 60 minutes each day. Remember, activity time doesn't have to happen all at once. You can choose to do activities spread out through out the day which add up to 60 minutes. The main point I want to make is just for everyone to stay active, healthy and happy!
Staying active outside a school setting demonstrates the following SHAPE America National Physical Education Grade-level Outcomes:
Grades K-5 (Physical Activity Knowledge) Standard 3 [E1.K,2,3a,5] Identifies active play opportunities outside physical education class (K); Describes physical activities for participation outside physical education class (e.g., before and after school, at home, at the park, with friends, with the family) (2); Charts participation in physical activities outside physical education class (3a); Charts and analyzes physical activity outside physical education class for fitness benefits of activities (5).
Grades 6-8 (Engages in Physical Activity) Standard 3 [M2.6-8] Participates in self-selected physical activity outside of physical education class (6); Participates in a physical activity twice a week outside of physical education class (7); Participates in physical activity three times a week outside of physical education class (8).
Grades 9-12 (Engages in Physical Activity) Standard 3 [H6.L1] Participates several times a week in a self-selected lifetime activity, dance, or fitness activity outside of the school day (L1).
I hope you will enjoy the activities, games, and ideas. Please share pictures of your family enjoying any type of physical activity with me through email or messenger on Class Dojo. I look forward to seeing what you enjoy doing to stay active while school is out!
