We as physical educators, need to be responsible in leading our kids in the right direction with providing them with the proper fundamental skills. This development can not start with kids in high school. These actions of assessing and presenting these skills needs to take place from day one in school. I am not saying that the younger children of the elementary stages (K-2) need to be bombarded with multiple complex skills on a daily basis. But the most basic fundamental skills with some easy locomotion games involving running, hopping, and jumping is where it needs to be.

This is the first time i have ever created a blog. I had no idea what to expect and how it would turn out. This whole process seems pretty interesting and exciting. Over my winter break, I worked for the local YMCA in Schenectady, NY. I worked with kids from the ages of five to twelve every morning at an elementary school in my area. I have worked for the YMCA for the past three years. I feel that working for the YMCA ( in the childcare department) makes me a better teacher each and every day. Teaching kids not only in the Physical Education area, but about everyday things is what i want to do.
