Lesson Plans on the Fly

Today was the day I’ve been waiting for. With the entire middle school having PE at the me time, we all wondered how we would manage if it started raining. I’m proud to say that I took it in stride and got everyone where they needed to be.

Our middle school teams practice during PE and I also run a traditional PE class for those that are not participating in a sport. With very little time to make any real plans and knowing that my class was being put into the weight room which is very tight fit I went into action.

Today was a day that I had my 7/8th grade students so I decided to do fitness stations. It actually worked out perfectly. I managed to fit 14 stations in the weight room and then had the kids partner up and do each station fora minute. Then they rested for a minute. The timing worked out perfectly for my class time.

For the setup, I put sticky notes on our dome cones with the excerise they needed to do. With the middle schoolers, it was clear that the tiny notes wouldn’t last so I actually wrote the workouts really small so I can keep using them

This will probably be my go-to rainy day plan because it’s easy to do and I don’t need a ton of space. 

What do you do when you have a small space to work with?

I wrote the exercise small so I can use the cones for other things in class.
