Elementary Physical Education
Physical education offers opportunities for all students to participate fully and explore a wide range of movement activities exposing students to new ideas and experiences. Equipment and activities are modified as needed to meet students’ developmental needs. Students develop self-confidence through participation in cooperative as well as competitive activities. CUSD elementary schools use the OPEN (Online Physical Education Network) curriculum. This is a rigorous, outcomes-based curriculum aligned with CUSD Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes. The lessons take into account the diverse development levels that students in all grade levels will exhibit. The physical education teacher uses instructional practices and deliberate-practice tasks such as differentiated instruction, active engagement, modified activities, self-assessment, self-monitoring.
