goal is to
provide one of the most comprehensive Elementary Physical Education and
Secondary Physical Education resources available on the internet. On
this site you will find a wide variety of elementary physical education
games, including cooperative games and activities, sports games, lead up
activities, and much more. Furthermore, you will find ideas on
elementary physical education assessment, field day ideas, cheap or free
physical education equipment, created and compiled by an elementary physical
education teacher with over two decades of experience.
I recently had the opportunity to
try out a new product created by a physical education teacher. The new
product is called a TugBall. At first, I was a little skeptical about
the TugBall and how the kids would like the game. That skepticism left
me after playing the game with my first class. I wanted to start the
game off with my 5th graders, the highest level I teach. The first
class was a little tough, mostly due to my getting a feel for the game and
the rules. However, the kids loved it, and by the end of the day, I
had the rules and bugs pretty much worked out. I played the game with
my 3rd through 5th grades, and each class really enjoyed the game. As
you can see by the photo, the TugBall is a ball enveloped in a rope and
strap cage, with 8 extending ropes. The premise behind the tugball is
that you can add a more upperbody strength workout to a ball style activity,
by incorporating tug of war. The first game we tried was the
original TugBall game. The game begins with a 2v2 tug of war to
determine which team gets possession. The game is then played similar
to "speedball" or "rugby". I won't go into all the rules here, but you
can find the actual rules and regulations at
Tug-Ball.com. I will just say, that the kids loved the
game, and I enjoyed the new activity as well. I am definitely looking
forward to trying out Vortex; another game for the TugBall. Not to
mention several other games in which I intend to incorporate the new TugBall!
YourFieldDay.com (Gravadi Activewear)
I have used this company for the last 3 years, for my field day shirts. The experience with them is excellent! They worked hard to provide the shirts (over 400 each year!) I wanted and with a variety of colors. I used 7 different color shirts with a variety of colors of the same logo. I got a 4 color logo, for nearly the same price that I paid for a single color logo the year before, from a local company. The shirts arrived ahead of schedule, and received major compliments from parents, staff and students. I highly recommend this company and have every intention of using them again this year. They even offer a free gift with every t-shirt!
