Physical Activity – Siblings

This year in our homeschool co-op, I have the honor of facilitating the PE class.  The class is called The Siblings because they are the siblings of the 6th through 12th graders in the co-op. 

We are participating in the Presidential Active Lifestyle program.  To begin our day we march to warm up.


Donna Young was kind enough to write a marching song just for us.

Homeschooling is number one
It’s a lot of work and fun
Our teacher is our mama
The principal is our papa
We don’t know, but we been told
Our brain is worth a ton of gold.

Sound Off!
One, two,
Sound Off!
Three, four
Sound Off!
One, two, three, four
Three, Four!

Thanks Donna! The kids love it. 🙂

Next we stretched and did some jumping jacks.


After getting the body all warmed up, we played with the new Scoop ‘N Toss equipment. I have a set of six scoopers and matching plastic balls. Later in the year, I’ll have to think of odd, fun activities to do with these.  If you have any ideas, just let me know. 🙂



Each Monday I hope to have a different PE activity for the class, because …

we all know, we take being physically fit very serious and varity is a good thing.
