• Physical Education TEKS

    In Grades K-2, children learn fundamental movement skills and begin to understand how the muscles, bones, heart, and lungs function in relation to physical activity. Students begin to develop a vocabulary for movement and apply concepts dealing with space and body awareness. Students are engaged in activities that develop basic levels of strength, endurance, and flexibility. In addition, students learn to work safely in group and individual movement settings. A major objective is to present activities that complement their natural inclination to view physical activity as challenging and enjoyable.
    In Grades 3-5, students continue to develop strength, endurance, and flexibility. Students can demonstrate mature form in fundamental locomotor and manipulative skills and can often maintain that form while participating in dynamic game situations. Identifying personal fitness goals for themselves and beginning to understand how exercise affects different parts of the body is an important part of the instructional process.

    Physical Education at Roberts Road Elementary is about developing each individual to achieve their potential. We provide a broad range of opportunities for all of our students to fully realize their physical skills and abilities. We allow our students to build their understanding and experience teamwork, leadership skills and broaden their social skills as well. Furthermore, we aim to foster a love of sports that will allow our students to continue to participate long after they leave elementary school.

    Because we value the safety of our students, please have them wear tennis shoes for physical education class so they can participate in the activities. They should wear comfortable clothing. If girls wear dresses, they must wear shorts or tights underneath.

    "Of all the subjects learned in school, Physical Education is the only subject which, by the very nature of its content, has the potential to affect how a person will feel every moment of every day for the rest of his or her life"....Charlie E. Owens
