  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:07 PM EDT

    A1. I am trying @MrHairPhysEd idea with the faces for the students to step on as they enter class this gives a quick check where they are. #physed #espechat
  • r_gibson18 Sep 4 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1) Everything is new for me this year - this is my first year teaching PE. I am excited to implement some form of self-assessment for Ss. Not sure if it will be #plagnets or something else. #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 4 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1 haven’t started school yet, but going to use much more self reflection and data reporting from students #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • saradpe Sep 4 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1) I team teach and we implemented a different routine when our kids enter the gym from the locker room. Previously they did the traditional “go to your roll call spot”, now they come in and walk and talk with each other until all have filtered in. Way Better!! #espechat

    Hi Veronica from VAchecking in #espechat
  • Mr_C_PE Sep 4 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1) Today (first day) was getting to know you activities across the board...most that I've done in the past. First "new" thing will be on 2nd lessons later this week, with an idea courtesy of our moderator this evening, @PerkettPE: https://t.co/6Tnbwjeqnd #espechat #physed
    • Mr_C_PE Aug 21 @ 3:56 PM EDT
      Thanks to @PerkettPE for his tip about using @ChatterPixIt! I’ve been looking for a way to bring my pets into my gym and this app/video is a great way to have my babies highlight our expectations for the year! I’m sure my Ss will be excited to see them! #physed #espechat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1 not sure if it’s working well yet since today was the first day of school, but I’m implementing the what, why, how format from @phys_educator for my learning targets and whiteboard layout this year #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:11 PM EDT
    Ss walk over the face that tells me how they are at the beginning and ending of every class. #espechat

  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:11 PM EDT
    Question 2 coming up soon! #espechat
  • MsPhysEduDP Sep 4 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1) I added the entry board so when students come in, the know exactly what the instant activity is for the day & I am able to answer/assist students upon arrival as well handle minor housekeeping things #espechat
  • jazzijeph Sep 4 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1 I have not changed much anything I'm only adding things every week. As a 2nd year T I expect more of myself and my ss. #espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    Q2: What is something new that you WANT to try in your classroom but you don't have the resources or you are too anxious? #espechat
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1 I have started class with a mindful moment! our 5th/6th grade comes straight to us from recess! so far so good! we use isochronic tones and a bunch of discovery bottles i've made #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:13 PM EDT

  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    A1 My district, @CVUSDNews is big on thinking maps so I’m giving them a go in #physed 👍🏼. So far I’ve used the flow maps for routines. Helps me be precise, I’d say it’s been a positive. More new things to try, stay tuned #ESPEchat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    That’s what I’m hoping for! #espechat
    In reply to @EPEWCP, @phys_educator

  • r_gibson18 Sep 4 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    I really want to create some opportunities for family fitness events at our school but I’m not quite sure where to begin! I’m thinking about starting small with an informal meet-up at our local running trail. I’d also love to someday do “bring your parents to pe”. #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • kniper1 Sep 4 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    A2 #Espechat my students are teachers. I hope to spend more time with them face to face

    A2. I would like to use tech more in my class. And more assessment. #espechat #physed
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    I use BAM Video Delay for this. I love it, but I only have 1 ipad, so I am limited as to how often Ss get to use it. #espechat
    In reply to @MsPhysEduDP
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    I want to hold a Super Saturday ninja warrior course for my kids who are differently abled- with medals and sensory tunnels and all sorts of cool stuff..need a grant for that though! #espechat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A2 would love to use Google Classroom to implement a semi-flipped classroom model with 4th/5th grade since I have very limited contact time with them, but concerned about student ability to access at home.. #espechat
  • MsPhysEduDP Sep 4 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A2) Family fitness night---and I thought the IDEA of the take home tubs---I think I thought about it too late in the summer to really set them up & still need to figure out the logistics since I teache 7 grades.. .#espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    Question 3 coming up soon! #espechat

  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    Q3: Let's talk specifics. What is working in your class so far? What isn't and needs to be addressed? #espechat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    In the same boat! Would be great to incorporate more rhythm activities with this. #espechat

    In reply to @EPEWCP, @MsPhysEduDP
  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A2 Really want to try having tech based forms for teams to answer in a station rotation or towards the end of class, but super anxious about having laptops outside. They need to be bubble wrapped! Or perhaps it’s time for our own #physed tablets #ESPEchat

  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    I have the iPad on the stand w cones around it. Ss know they can't touch it. I have it set up and running before Ss get there. The first time takes lots of training. #espechat
    In reply to @framed01, @MsPhysEduDP
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A3) We added a door greeter in each class...SO AWESOME! However I feel that some rules and expectations need to be addressed still...it seems like there was no "Honeymoon Phase" this year. #espechat
  • erik_myer Sep 4 @ 8:22 PM EDT

    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A3: Working is basic routines that Ss already know. I have kept the same. Need to work w Ts on getting Ss dropped off and picked up on time. #espechat
  • MsPhysEduDP Sep 4 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A3) Some expectations---some classes just get it and I can be a little more lenient ---others classes I'm like okay--back to the drawing boards! #espechat
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    we ALL need to work on the Ts picking up and dropping off on time :-) #espechat
    In reply to @EPEWCP
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 4 @ 8:24 PM EDT
    A3 All new assessments are working. Ss letting me know they returned from the restroom is not working because they forget because they want to get back to the activity. A few Ss let me know. I might have to add the light idea I saw on here #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • jazzijeph Sep 4 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A2 I would love to have a fitness night with my parents and possibly bring your parents to PE week #espechat
  • efisher39 Sep 4 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A1) I've always "used" my projector, but now I am projecting every activity of every lesson up so kids can read and get a visual of the directions as well. Working very well- getting a lot less of the "what are we doing?" questions after 37 seconds. #ESPEchat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • saradpe Sep 4 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A3) Only 8 days in - Haven’t found anything yet that “isn’t working”. Still the honeymoon period with the middle schoolers. 😂 #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A3 some basic expectations, especially with older grades based on today anyway #espechat
  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3 As we begin our 2nd week of dressing our I would say the routines are working as well as conversations I have w ss before class, after class, during class and as I help them jog on a warm-up or jog/walk grid. It’s been great helping 7th graders gel into ms & #physed #ESPEchat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    Here comes Question 4! #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3 kept a lot of the routines those are working, Practicing showing respect to peers and listening does not always work so well. Some classes have it some not so much. #espechat #PhysEd
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    I am getting ready for my Parent PE Week in a couple of weeks. Just give it a try! One of the best things I have started. #espechat

    Q4: What do you do on the first day of school to gain the attention and trust of your students? #espechat
  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3b What’s not working is our warm-up. Not that it’s not working, I think it just needs improvement and by that I mean it needs some pizazz, some variation. Definitely something I’d like to work on this year #ESPEchat
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    The PARENTS LOVE this! We do ours in January when there is a lull around school love love love it! we had over 300 parents in one week! #espechat
    In reply to @EPEWCP, @jazzijeph
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A4: I tell them about me and my why and the why of my class. I also make sure that they know how important me saying the name correctly is to me. #espechat
  • kniper1 Sep 4 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A4 on the first days it is jmportant for them to see you as a person. Share your story, let them know why you care about them and #PhysEd #EspeChat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:29 PM EDT

    A4 #espechat Get the students in and active right away. Give them the chance to play with as much equipment as you can. Show them they can handle the equipment and they will trust you.
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • saradpe Sep 4 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A4) exit tickets that give each student a chance to tell me: 1) their fav pe activity they’ve ever done 2) name an {appropriate} song they’d like to hear during PE 3) anything they think I should know that could affect their success and enjoyment in PE #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 4 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A4 I share my favorite things. If Ss like what I like they raise the roof & I allow them to ask me three questions. Oh this yr I had some funny questions. We also do activities that help Ss to get to know each other #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • RoLo_PE Sep 4 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A4: I tell my Ss a lot about the 'why' they are in PE and the purpose of it, hot it applies to their lives #espechat
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:31 PM EDT
    A4 I share about myself including my "issues" i wear glasses when I read, I had a bad concussion so I mix up my colors, and my kids have 2 homes..then I invite the kiddos to share what they want me to know about them on post it notes- and remind them it's avail all year #espechat
  • Mr_C_PE Sep 4 @ 8:31 PM EDT
    A4) My Ss really enjoyed this today on our first day back. This activity set the tone of enjoyment in PE while lowering inhibitions and nervousness of our new Ss. https://t.co/NhWquH1sxe #espechat #physed

    A4 First day of school is all housekeeping (more like first 2 weeks) so I’ll fast fwd to the first day of #physed 👍🏼. I went the empathy and growth mindset route this year, furthermore, a little class comp in who would have 💯 % turn in rate on their Handbook #ESPEchat

  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    Q5: What do you wait to teach until later in the school year? Why? #espechat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    I’m having my students fill in a bubble map with their ideas/knowledge on that exact topic during the first week. Below is the before photo...after to come next week hopefully. #espechat

  • efisher39 Sep 4 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A3) Working: my student relationships. I love these students and thoroughly enjoy the kids I see each day. Needs work: I need to be more efficient with lessons in terms of less time spent on instruction and more time spent with kids active. #ESPEchat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A5 distric has a pacing guide so we all teach the same thing at the same time..BUT I don't bring out the equipment until we have finished "PE 101" which includes hopes and dreams, expectations, our book to focus our year on and our inspirational video and safe moving #espechat
  • Mr_C_PE Sep 4 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A5) Gymnastics. Weather is one reason (mainly an indoor/winter activity for us) in addition to the fact that I think expectations of safety need to be known and understood for a while before introducing a higher risk unit such as this #espechat
  • CoachCarterTX Sep 4 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A1: Using a projector to display countdown clocks, score keepers, videos to demonstrate movements. Other than technological issues that randomly arise, the kids seem to like it. #espechat

  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 4 @ 8:39 PM EDT
    A5 We had to wait until this week to have the Ss do our attendance taking procedures. We had to get our rosters in Powerschool. Then we had to get the Ss #s and this week they are finally doing the procedure. This was a 3 week process #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A5) I wait to teach Plagnets until a few weeks into the year. I want to make sure they know all of the expectations and rules. #espechat
  • RoLo_PE Sep 4 @ 8:40 PM EDT
    A5: I guess I don't purposely wait to teach anything specific, but I do like teaching more team oriented activities later so I can get my students to have a solid foundation of sportsmanship/teamwork down #espechat

  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A5: Striking skills because I need to know they can follow directions. #espechat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:42 PM EDT
    A5 basically anything involving striking with implements so I can make sure that safety expectations are well established beforehand. #espechat
  • Charmain4PE Sep 4 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A5 I wait til Dec to introduce dribbling w/ finger pads-so many themes I can relate to (many S's start their Rec b-ball then). + of course, I revisit dribbling throwing catching dodging chasing fleeing & invasion tactics in Mar 4 "MARCH MADNESS" @ PerkettPE @uwfphysed #ESPEchat
  • efisher39 Sep 4 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A4) I don't do any 'rules and procedure' stuff the first day. Save it all for Day 2- I bring highly active and engaging stuff to Day 1 so S's walk out a little sweaty and remembering how much fun they have in PE! #ESPEchat

    A5 Putting my rosters into applications such as Plickers due to our constant schedule changes the first 3 weeks of school. Additionally, units such as track & field that involve discus/shot put throwing as we need safety down to a “t” along with foreshadowing w some ss #ESPEchat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    Q6: How do you make your rules/expectations interactive instead of just a "sit and get" lecture? #espechat
  • kniper1 Sep 4 @ 8:45 PM EDT
    Yep striking needs to wait #espechat
    In reply to @MrPicha_PE
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    A6 basically sprinkle in instant activities in between short bits of discussing procedures and expectations is how I’ve approached it. #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    A5 I wait to use planets until a month into school. I have to teach playground rules, routines and start addressing fitness and hydration right away. #espechat
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    A6 we take "field trips" around the gym to the expectations that are posted on the wall- after talking about what it looks like and feels like we practice ie. Safe moving: so we play red light green light or something similar., personal space: human fidgit spinners #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    A6: I have them play Poison Pond where each class expectation in around the perimeter. Ss use spots to get their team across the pond to each cone. Helps w team building and expectations. #espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    Q6) This year I wanted to have my major rules/expectations discussed or brought out by my dog Ford using @ChatterPixIt ... I didn't get around to it...so maybe next year! #espechat
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    Q6 I do a tour of the gym so kids know where they can go. I used to start with warmup games and used an artificial tree as an example student who would misbehave purposefully so we could talk about consequences. #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    A5b I don’t get to the planets cuz I feel like I have so much to cover there is so such a limit on time. I want them to get it when I do intro it. #espechat #PhysEd
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    Time is getting away here quickly so here comes Question 7! #espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:49 PM EDT
    Q7: What is your system for class misbehavior? #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    Tell us more about human fidget spinners? #espechat
    In reply to @PE1o1
  • efisher39 Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A5) I'm gonna take the copout answer here... I wait for winter to do bobsledding! You can figure out why. #ESPEchat

  • ElemPhysEd Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    Q3 #ESPEchat #espechat I introduced the Conflict Corner this year and it's working great. Kids are really open to it and has really helped control tattling behaviors.
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • kniper1 Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A6 #espechat I use a cooperative activity to talk about time. The students start with x number of hoops representing time. Kids are activities. I take away hoops and we try to still fit the activities in. They realize we need the time for the activities
  • pk_lv2teachpe Sep 4 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A5 Tumbling is an activity that waits until after students have a good safety foundation. Trust in each other, and better understanding of body management. #espechat

  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    A6 It’s normally a lecture, this year I added questions where ss had the opportunity to earn plastic cover sheets for their PE Handbook. Haven’t done this yet but I’d like to do an expectation review using an adventure run #ESPEchat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    A7) I use your standard Warning-Timout-Removal set-up. Does anyone use something different or what they would consider better? #espechat
  • CoachWilliamsPE Sep 4 @ 8:51 PM EDT
    A7 3 strikes and we contact home with a note #espechat

  • efisher39 Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    2 purposes: I want the website to be something to share the P.E. activities with parents so they know what we're doing and with other P.E. teachers to help grow professional networks. #ESPEchat

    A7: So our school uses the Responsive Classroom system. Last year I started using Focus Frames, basically spots around the gym Ss go for a quick breather. 1st visit-they choose when to re-visit class. 2nd visit-I get to choose. #espechat Needs tweaking due to frequent flyers tho
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    I just did one for having Ss fill out the questionnaire. It was so much more successful! Thanks @KateCoxPE for the idea! #espechat
    In reply to @smsandino, @KateCoxPE
  • PE1o1 Sep 4 @ 8:52 PM EDT
    A7: no whole class system-we use take a breaks and PE think sheets (kids record name & date on a "ticket" & what the mistake was and what they will do differently the next time- after the ticket is completed they can return to class gives me instant data for standard 4 #espechat
  • saradpe Sep 4 @ 8:53 PM EDT
    A6) ours are pretty sit and get. But they also don’t take very long because they’re 8th graders and they kind of get it by now. We mainly just need to cover locker room policies and a few procedures and expectations. We send a handout with them as well. #espechat
    In reply to @PerkettPE
  • SaraWoodPE Sep 4 @ 8:54 PM EDT
    I was bringing kids over to list of consequences and having them select one that they thought would be appropriate. #espechat

  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:54 PM EDT
    We are almost out of time...so here comes our final question of the night! #espechat
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:54 PM EDT
    A7 I remove, quietly chat and have student reflect. Sometimes I have a student take a walk to a safe spot then return when ready and try again. #espechat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    Q8: Are you responsible for addressing rules/expectations in other areas of the school? Explain. #espechat
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    Yes! I was trying to find a way to word what I do. And that is basically it but much better stated that I had! #espechat
    In reply to @framed01
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    Would love to hear more about this what are the focus frames. I am reading the book currently. #espechat

  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:55 PM EDT
    A7 Warning ⚠️, time-out with an individual task (ie walk perimeter until I’m available or their ready to talk), complete removal (depending on the situation admin interference), it’s parent/guardian contact #ESPEchat
  • MrPicha_PE Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    A7 really trying to put a focus on praising positives in front of the class this year (and beyond). Also looking at utilizing @phys_educator “warning system” steps in my classes as well. #espechat
  • ElemPhysEd Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    I ask students to model/roleplay good vs bad behaviors=lots of laughter #ESPEchat

    Thanks Frances. Try them out! #espechat
    In reply to @framed01
  • EPEWCP Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    A8: We also cover recess areas. Our fields are split into kicking/running/throwing to keep kids safe during recess. First week we play those games in those areas while working on teamwork as well. #espechat
  • RoLo_PE Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    A8: Not really, but I feel obligated to tackle recess expectations with equipment, games, etc. #espechat
  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:56 PM EDT
    Noooice! What activities did you use?? #ESPEchat

    Thank you @PerkettPE and all the other #PhysEd Geeks for tonight’s #ESPEChat see you next time
  • Mr_C_PE Sep 4 @ 8:58 PM EDT
    A8) I think we are. We have school-wide rules that encompass classrooms, hallways, etc. Trying to keep all the Ss on the same page in terms of target behaviors #espechat
  • smsandino Sep 4 @ 8:58 PM EDT
    A8 Yes, we are responsible for covering an area of the school the first week (ie blacktop) in addition to our own. We are also responsible for covering a particular area once a week when we teach a Second Step lesson (character program) #ESPEchat
  • PerkettPE Sep 4 @ 8:59 PM EDT
    It was a blast moderating for you RockStars tonight! Have a great school year! #espechat #PhysEd
  • framed01 Sep 4 @ 8:59 PM EDT
    A8 I am also responsible for teaching recess activities and equipment use. #espechat
