The PE department at UNM is willing to provide us with an 14-wk PE class for homeschoolers again this fall. It has been a wonderful success the last few years! Class Description
PE class for homeschoolers in conjunction with the physical education department at the University of New Mexico. Under the supervision of the instructor, student teachers who are majoring in PE work with the children in small, age appropriate groups. The curriculum covers the fundamental movements of Locomotion, Non-locomotion, Manipulation and the application of movement concepts of Space, Effort and Relationships to those skill themes. The activities are developmentally appropriate for the skill level of the children in each group.
Please note slight time change mid semester!
Classes will begin Thursday, September 10 from 9:00 - 9:40
. Then, starting on November 5th, the class time will switch to 8:40 - 9:15 am as in previous years. This is to accommodate the fact that the children will be working with 2 different sets (classes) of PE student instructors, changing mid-semester. There is no class on October 15th due to UNM Fall break.
The class is held on campus at Johnson Center (across from Popejoy Hall off Central). It's a 14 week class that will run on Thursday mornings, September through December, not including UNM Fall Break and Thanksgiving break.
There is no charge for this class; however, there is a charge for parking on campus. I believe that parking still costs $1.25 for one hour and is adjacent and convenient to class location.
For kids ages 4-12 year olds. This class is open to homeschoolers.
Please register with Sharon (firstname.lastname@example.org). Class size is limited so be sure to sign up quickly if interested. In addition, for the consideration of those that may be put on a waiting list, please only sign up if you are committed to actually attending the class. Thank you!
