8th Grade- Week 3

Students participated in circuit training this week. They also had an in depth classroom day in which they took notes about the muscle groups that they will learn this 9 weeks. These are the same muscle groups that they are exercising during circuit training. Log onto the previous blog and print the study guide for these groups. There will be a test and a quiz on these in the upcoming weeks.

8th Grade Fitness- Week 1

We have completed our Baseline Fitness Assessment in the Fitness Lab and will begin circuit training early next week. Baseline Fitness Assessment consists of starting measurements for various components of fitness (see link list below). The students will also receive instruction on fitness concepts such as Muscular Anatomy, Muscular Physiology, Cardiorespiratory Fitness, and more. It is my hope that every student will show improvement in nearly every category upon End of Course Fitness Assessment. Please check this blog weekly for 8th Grade Fitness updates.

This week consisted of circuit training and moving up in difficulty to the advanced version of Tae-Bo.

8th Grade Fitness- Week 8

This week we worked on completing end of course fitness testing. Many students have should great improvement on several or all of the weight machines. Resting heart rate has decreased in many and stamina/strength has increased. We took advantage of the nice weather and went to the baseball diamond for some outdoor activity (whiffleball) as well this week. Tuesday, October 10th marks the end of this grading period.

Classroom day update

Due to several factors including the first 9 weeks being cut 3 days short and end of course fitness testing, the final classroom day will not occur. This cardiorespiratory lab was an extra component to the requirements of the 8th grade Fitness class. For any students that were whole-heartedly looking forward to it- I apologize (the few of you there may actually be).

Dressing for class

A very large portion of a students grade is based solely upon whether or not they dress-out for class. It is the third week of class and the number of students that have failed to dress is going up daily. The grade component based on dressing out is the sole responsibility of the participant. Every student begins the 9 weeks with a 100% in dress. Every time they fail to dress they lose 5 points of this total. 20% is very nearly one quarter of a student's final grade and it is a shame to lose these valuable points for something as easy as changing clothes for class. Please encourage your Fitness student to dress-out for class.
