A Message from Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

The experience our students have during physical activity in any environment (PE, distance learning program, recess, recreational) can stay with them for the rest of their lives. Research has shown that if it is a negative experience, it is more likely that the student will live an inactive lifestyle as an adult – and if it is positive, they will develop active and healthy, lifelong habits. I believe that we, as PE teachers, can make the positive difference for our students – even those who have already developed a fixed mindset about their own physical abilities and limits. In this one-day, highly practical seminar, I hope to inspire you with new station teaching ideas and strategies to enhance your existing PE program.

I developed this seminar for all PE teachers who are looking for innovative ways to create more inclusive programs where students are actively participating at their own skill levels and are working in stations together in fun and engaging ways. I have taught all grade levels, all populations, and at numerous schools. I have always utilized stations and I have refined my understanding of what works for all students all ages and all populations. I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned from my own practice … all of the ideas, lessons, music, routines and how I create as well as how I teach a station-based lessons. In addition, I will share dozens of ways to use music to better motivate and manage students, ideas for adapting stations to meet the needs of students with special needs, assessment tips, time and classroom management strategies, low-cost or free resources you won’t want to miss, positive play and cooperative activities to promote full inclusion, tips for teaching foundational gross motor skills, and much, much more!

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to participate in a high-energy seminar that encourages maximum participation in physical education stations for all students! You will leave with strategies, activities, and ready-to-go stations you can use immediately in your own physical education program.
