I’ve been thinking about how I can bring physical literacy to the classroom. Even in my practicum classes, P.E. still seemed to be an isolated subject–looked forward to or dreaded by students when the period came. Just like all things done in school, I think it’s important for students to see how what they are learning is applicable to their lives. Instead of learning games and doing activities 3X a week, I wondered how I could bring physical literacy into their daily lives. With many students being inactive at home and eating fast food regularly, I wonder how physical activity and healthy choices might be made a daily part of the school day. I’ve heard of a program that brings a new fruit or vegetable into classrooms each week. Students all have the opportunity to try it. I think this program, maybe along with talking with students about all the good things these vegetables and fruits do for our body, can maybe begin to make students more aware of what they are eating. I also think teaching students how to make healthier choices when it comes to eating would be a valuable lesson. Perhaps helping students find something active they like to do and allowing students to share about their physical activity outside the class would start to build a desire to have a more physically active lifestyle.
