PUMP UP THE VOLUME!!!
The following fitness activity, What’s on Your Plate- Valentine’s Day Fitness Edition is a “high energy, fun and organized” PE Valentine-themed activity that can easily be used as a warm up, cool down, or extended as a “stand alone” activity during fitness instruction. Thirty, circular signs with corresponding fitness movements were created to help develop your students' personal fitness during those challenging weeks in the dead of the Winter. Your students will love the movement exercises and the Valentine-related graphics. They will want to repeat the activity many times during the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day.
This fitness activity can be used in a gym setting, in a classroom or anywhere that you have some space to have kids perform some stationary exercises and movement skills in small groups. The “What’s on Your Plate- Valentine's Day Fitness Edition” is very easy to set up and can last anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, depending upon the duration you use per rotational movement set.
After printing and laminating the circular exercise and movement “plates”, spread them out on the floor around your room or gym, use UPBEAT music for start and stop cues; then let the students let loose and “move it, move it”!!! It is as simple as that. Don’t forget to demonstrate each movement or better yet, have selected students demonstrate the movements first before you begin the process.
NOTE: Some of the graphics and Valentine's Day sayings on the exercise plates are similar to the graphics and sayings in my PE Valentine Exercise Cards and 4 Valentine's Day Activities
, however the size of the circular plates are much larger than the exercise cards and both product activities are quite different.
The PE Valentine Exercise Cards and Valentine’s Day Activities were designed for Kindergarten through 5th grade students.
