I'M NO GOOD AT BASEBALL
What about the students that lack skill or confidence? What about the child that says "I can't throw"? There always seems to be somebody that says "I can't play baseball or I get out all the time". What do you do with all those feelings?
I understand that each individual is unique and I believe they all have a strong talent or ability. I try to give my students the opportunity to discover their strength. It just can't be done if you subscribe to a six week of soccer, followed by six weeks of kickball, six weeks of basketball etc..
Your athletic student will thrive with all those challenges, while the rest of your class is much less enthusiastic. Remember , the goal of physical education should engage the student, so much so, that they will stay active for a life time.
So, be creative. Offer all sorts of challenges. Put new twists on old games. Listen to and encourage students to make up games. Offer plenty of variety. Most of all, have fun as you engage them in activities.
