As you probably know our professional organization recently changed names from AAHPERD to SHAPE America. If you don’t already frequent the website, let me encourage you. ” Horay you! Go check it out! You’ll really love it!”
The new website has a clean smart look. SHAPE stands for Society of Health and Physical Educators. In the past I’ve used the teacher toolbox to print activity calendars, and get holiday ideas. I’m thrilled to find the teacher toolkit is still available. There is even a coaches toolbox! However the coolest update is SHAPE America members worked to create a document titled Grade Level Outcomes for Physical Education. This great document will become my new planning blue print. Wondering what a first grader should be able to do? Wonder no longer, this document spells it out for each grade! Exciting! I know I’m such a PE nerd! Check it out, I know you will be glad to be a member of such an awesome professional organization!
