Recognizing those important moments in PE class
Striking and fielding can be quite difficult for some students as they have had no prior experience to the unit. The act of striking and fielding a ball takes time and practice. What is important to me is not that they master these skills, but more importantly demonstrate and understanding of important concepts related to the games we play in class.
I had one student this week who did an amazing job on one of her assessment tasks. Although she struggles with the skills and striking and fielding, she was able to identify and explain important concepts of our unit in the assessment task done in class. Definitely worth recognizing these moments in PE!!
