This week's Friday Freebie is something that I am actually rather happy with. It is a program for Physical Education and Sport for a full semester. Note that it is an actual Physical Education program, not a let's go and play a game program. The structure of the program is based on my current context, Stage One, and is dealing with four sets of fundamental movement skills for a block of approximately four weeks each. I plan to complete the Semester Two version sometime during Term Two so that it is ready to go for Term Three.
Please feel free to share any feedback on the program, issues, questions, things that do not make sense or are overly convoluted.

Welcome to the 2017 school year! I hope you are as excited for the year as I am and that whatever your context for this year, that you are hopeful for the year. This year I am teaching in a job share arrangement for three days per week which is also in a team teaching context with a colleague teacher. I spent some time thinking out loud about my goals for the year on the way to school yesterday.
I also rambled some early reflections on the way home yesterday over Periscope (safely mounted in a holder).
The class space, which used to be the library/librarians office/computer lab is starting to feel less like that and more like a class space which is fantastic. It is definitely still a work in progress, but I'm quite happy with it so far.
I hope your first few days back have been exciting and filled you with hope for a great year.
