ISABELLE JACKSON PE PROGRAM:
A quality physical education program is offered to students as a part of the general curriculum at Isabelle Jackson. We will be implementing activities from SPARK Physical Education (Sports, Play and Active Recreation for Kids) and the Physical Education Curriculum Guide, created by Todd Taylor, a Physical Education Specialist with Elk Grove Unified School District. Both resources are effective and meet or exceed both state and national standards for Physical Education.
It is important to us that every child feels successful each day and that they leave PE class eager to come back. Classes will be safe, enjoyable, active, and developmentally appropriate.
One of our goals is to actively engage children in sufficient amounts of moderate to vigorous physical activity to improve and/or maintain their physical health and well being. Another goal is to encourage children to apply the skills and knowledge they acquire during class to seek opportunities to be active outside of school as part of a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, units are planned to develop motor, personal and social skills.
