Throughout the year, my boys have a busy schedule with P.E. activities. I make it a huge part of their curriculum. Hey~ I have four boys, they NEED to run-around --in a positive, structured manner. Don't get me wrong, they have plenty of down time for fun stuff; like playing at the park, walking/bicycling (it's a big thing here in Germany), and swimming pools are abundant here also.
I would have to say their favorite sport is soccer. Well my oldest likes soccer and my second oldest likes baseball. Third child just likes kicking around any ball...and now my two-year just tags along.
Here pretty soon, I will put them on a German soccer team (from the town we live in--you could say in our district). This will be awesome because it's year-around soccer (football to them). Winter is inside and the rest of the season is outside. Another reason that is great is because they have a set schedule whereas on-post, it is always space-available and the number of games are limited--for a hefty price per family (even when it's discounted).
I will probably also take them to the swimming pool during the winter this year. And don't forget our nature walks throughout the year will be scheduled.
Another outlet for P.E. is our new co-op on-post once per month!! I will head that up for the 'first semester' and I am hoping and praying I can get a 'curriculum' going for the co-op that will be fun and exciting.
The books that I purchased for the co-op:
1. Physical Education Curriculum Activities Kit for Grades K-6
2. Complete Physical Education Plans for Grades 7-12
Since our co-op will be multi-level and multi-age I got both books, but then I can use them for our own curriculum in the future.
Now, I only need to convince them to get into TRACK & FIELD--at least one year!!! Track & Field is my favorite sport, but somehow "Daddy" brainwashed them to think that it's not a sport. LOL!!
I beg a difference, I ran track in jr. high & high school and it's DEFINITELY a sport. Oh well, as long as they have fun and learn to have fun while staying healthy and fit; then that's all that matters--in this subject matter--that is.
What your favorite sport??
