Dance unit in 2011

 Happy New Year! With the new year comes new trends in Physical Education. It's exciting to see  opportunities for kids to be physically active in an updated way. One controversial habit of kids today is the use of video games. While I would say that hours upon hours sitting down staring at a screen is not the best use of our children's time, I think if you can integrate technology into movement oriented classes, it's awesome. Check out an article I was quoted in the Kokomo Tribune to see my opinions on this.  Kids love technology and really respond well to it in my classroom. Over the next two weeks, we will be doing a dance and fitness unit. Some of the activities we will be doing are: Wii FIT,  Just Dance on the Wii, Cardio Aerobic DVD's, AND....having a guest ZUMBA instructor come in. The kids enjoy these activities, therefore are excited to participate and get moving. Be sure to see the pictures and vids of the students having fun and being fit.
