As a pre-assessment task for my grade 1 students, we looked at the word 'movement' as it relates to the movement composition unit. Most of the students were in my movement composition unit last year and were able to recall many of the things that we had done which set the stage for a good discussion. I recorded their thoughts about 'movement' and, as you can see by the picture, they came up with some very good ideas that were then recorded on the poster.
I would be interested to hear some new ideas about what types of pre-assessment other PE teachers do in their movement composition units. If you would like to share, please let me know and I will post your ideas. Thanks!
