    Current Work in Silvia Physical Education: 

Student's in grades K-5 are currently developing the manipulative skills associated with the sport of soccer Passing, trapping, and shooting with accuracy are some of the basic fundamentals they are working on. The use of blended learning in the gym has allowed the PE teachers to dive into the science behind ball movement. Ask your children in grades 3-5 about the "Magnus Effect" and how we see it in soccer. 


         

Take a look at our Silvia Stars hard at work...


You hear it all the time...guardians quick to tell children to stop playing with electronics! The Silvia Elementary Physical Education Department is here to let families know that we can now use technology to promote physical activity!  We will now high light an app or website each month that can be used by students and/or parents to assist with reinforcing movement and learning at home.

This month's app highlighting basic soccer training can be found for free on iTunes at the app store!
