One of the shifts of the Common Core State Standards involves all content area teachers in students’ literacy development. All teachers have a stake in reading, writing, language, and speaking and listening….even P.E. teachers!
P.E. may seem like a difficult content area in which to integrate literacy, but it’s not impossible! Literacy tasks can be snuck in during warm-ups easily. You can focus on developing vocabulary (both content vocabulary and academic vocabulary) while warming your students up for whatever physical task you have planned!
I hope you find these ideas helpful!
