I thought I would post this now—- even though it is not until the 4th of September.
The aim of National H&PE Day is to promote the importance of health and physical education and highlight its value to the overall learning and development of children and young people.
So get out there, be active and promote an activity that can help set the foundations of a healthy lifestyle for the children of the future!
A great video for helping teach children about speech marks and to encourage Physical Education Bihemispheric Lateralisation.
Happy Learning and Moving! 🙂
I see closing the gap between Indigenous and Non Indigenous students as an imperative. Indigenous students need the opportunity to attend an environment that nurtures their culture and academic abilities. As teachers we need to start with “the here and now and map backwards” as Professor John Lester so eloquently says. This is important as otherwise all we are doing as teachers is delivering the same content year in year out with no scaffolding- HOW BORING…. (didgeridoos, boomerangs- we have already done it to death why do it again, we already know about the Aborigines)
In changing these perspectives and to promote Aboriginal Education in fun and engaging manner I have come across this website: http://www.crackerjackeducation.com.au/. There really is some great resources here, so continue to share and help in the fight of closing the gap and promoting reconciliation. 🙂
