Albuquerque Homeschool Forum / Classes and camps / 2009 PE UNM Class for Homeschoolers
Posted by: 635 (Guest), August 23, 2009, 8:21am
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! In fact, I'm thinking this is our 5th year running?!!
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 the first or second week in September.... I'm still waiting to hear the final schedule. This class is held on Thursday mornings. For the months of September and October, the class will run from 9 - 9:30 am. Then, starting in November, the class time will switch to 8:40 - 9:10 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.
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. I will post the final schedule when available.
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). Email child's first name and age. 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!
