Good Morning Girls and Boys! I am looking forward to teaching you this year for health and physical education. As you all know, we are starting off the year virtually for health and physical education. 
Teaching virtually is relatively new for me and I know it is new learning this way for you. I will do my best to make this as fun as possible. My goal is for us both to learn new ways to exercise, while keeping in share during the course of the year, and most importantly having fun! 
This web page will provide updates regarding health and physical education.
I will provide weekly assignments for physical education through google classroom. Each grade will have a classroom code that they can log INTO google classroom for their physical education assignment. I will post those codes on this web page and I will also share with your child's homeroom teacher. Following completion of the physical education assignment, all students will be giving a google form to complete. Google forms are easy to fill in for students and easy for parents to monitor! I will keep track of your child's progress during the course of each semester. 
Mrs.Christensen will be the lead teacher for all K-2 physical education classes. I will be the lead teacher for all 3-5 physical education classes. The lead teacher will be posting your assignments regularly. You regular teacher will be checking for your assignments and commenting onto your assignments in google classroom.
I will be doing live workouts and live videos via my Facebook Fitness Page, where students can sign on LIVE to view and to participate in. Please go to Mr. D's Fitness Group. I will accept your request to join. You can participate LIVE with me or view when you have time in your schedule. The following are the codes you will need for google classroom for students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

I will provide weekly assignments for health through google classroom as well! Health will work the same way as physical education, however, there will be NO google forms. Students will be given an assignment through google classroom. The students must do their best to complete the assignment in google classroom. Once the assignment is submitted, I will comment on the assignment and respond back to your child. Health assignments will start during the week of September 14th and will run for "8" straight weeks! I will provide the dates below, so you are ready to go! 
This year, I will be teaching 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade health. I will be sharing someone of these classes with Mrs. Christensen. Check your google classroom regularly for these assignments.

Second Grade Health
4th Grade Health
5th Grade Health
Here are the following weeks your students will have health! All assignments will be posted by Monday AM, regardless of your specific day of health! I will have Google Meets with each class throughout this time period. I do not want to overwhelm you with google meets for each lesson. My goal is to schedule a few google meets for each of my classes, so I can teach you all face to face via the computer as well as me seeing you!  I will try to coordinate with your homeroom teachers to arrange time for these meets! If your teacher has a regular google meet set up, that might be a time where I will join and teach health!

As a parent myself, I understand how tough this is regarding virtual learning. I will do everything on my end to be consistent, fair, and understand while teaching your children. Please make sure your children complete their assignments weekly. Again, welcome back to school and I am looking forward to a fun and fantastic year!
