P.E. Nursery - Grade 2

Fitness and Fun

At Country Day, P.E. truly is physical education.

When the nursery is playing What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, they are learning how to follow multi-step directions and understand how to comport themselves even if they are tagged out. When pre-kindergarteners are playing rollover dodgeball, aside from spatial awareness and hand-eye coordination, they are learning how to be good teammates and the basics of good sportsmanship.

On "Fitness Tuesdays,” when first and second graders are doing fun stations—jump ropes, rebounders, noodle squats—their teachers are building in lessons on how muscles work.

Beginning in first grade, students and their P.E. teachers skate once a week throughout the winter.
