    Integration in Physical Education

    Mr. Mark Pankau from Guilford Elementary and myself do presentations around the state to physical education specialists and classroom teachers to provide guidance on how to integrate movement into the classroom. Mr. Pankau will give a presentation on how the brain functions, based on research findings, in regards to how students learn and why our students need to get up and move. I provide activities and games for the teachers that reinforce the concepts already "taught". I started to say "learned", but the beauty of us working together, classroom and physical education, is that maybe the concept isn't learned yet. For some  students, having the opportunity to experience the concept through a visual or kinesthetic approach is the key to them better understanding and in turn learning the concepts. Here is a link to my book, in progress.
