Health and PE

My name is Jason Shegda and I am the Health and Physical Education Teacher.  In 2009, I graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Physical Education.  I also have a master’s degree from California University of Pennsylvania in Health and Wellness.  This will be my 5th year teaching at Ross.  Our goal in Health and Physical Education is to help each student develop physically, socially, emotionally, and mentally.  The extensive curriculum gives students the opportunity to see what types of activities they enjoy, in hopes that they continue to do them throughout life.  Students at Ross will come away with an understanding of why exercise and healthy living is so important for a fulfilling life.

Health & Physical Education

Pre-K 4–  Our first major unit of the school year is Locomotor Movements.  Students have been practicing and understanding the different locomotor skills ( walking, jogging, running, skipping,   galloping, sliding, hopping, jumping, and leaping).  Students are also learning about spacial awareness and the importance of open space when performing skills in physical education.   

K/1– In K/1, students are revisiting locomotor movements.  Students have been experimenting with different locomotor skills while brainstorming locations and times when these skills would be appropriate.  In order to achieve mastery of the locomotor skills, students have been engaged in a variety of different games that allow them to practice individual skills.    

2nd–   2nd graders are revisiting locomotor movements.  Students have been experimenting with different locomotor skills while brainstorming locations and times when these skills would be appropriate.  In order to achieve mastery of the locomotor skills, students have been engaged in a variety of different games that allow them to practice individual skills.     

2nd grade students are also performing a very basic circuit training routine as a warm-up.  Here, students are learning a variety of different bodyweight exercises that focus on improving cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition.    

 3rd– 3rd grade students are in the middle of their cooperative games unit.  Through a variety of different cooperative games, students have learned the meaning of concepts such as teamwork, cooperation, listening, leading, positive interaction, strategizing, trust, and honesty.  They have shown the ability to act out these concepts while performing different team challenges.   

4th– 4th grade students are in the middle of their cooperative games unit.  Through a variety of different cooperative games, students have learned the meaning of concepts such as teamwork, cooperation, listening, leading, positive interaction, strategizing, trust, and honesty.  They have shown the ability to act out these concepts while performing different team challenges.   

 5th– 5th grade students have just started their throwing and catching unit.  This is a skill that we have been practicing since they were k/1 students.  while playing a variety of different throwing and catching activities, students have been focusing more on their own form.
