ALIGN COMMON CORE MATH STANDARDS IN PE
Inside this packet are two Curriculum Connection Signs/Posters for integrating math into physical education. The 2 posters (Kdg. to 2nd and 3rd to 5th) identify 2 Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice for each grade level and provide basic examples of how we can align to the CC math standards with simple PE activities in our daily lessons. The stated PE math applications are simple to do and in most cases we as physical educators, are already incorporating these activities.
These signs or posters can be posted in your gyms or hallways leading to your gym entry door and can be displayed for all to see as a testament to how we can integrate academic subject standards into the curriculum we teach. Many of the Math integration activity examples can be easily fused into the fitness and skill-based activities that you are already teaching. By starting a count at a higher number or converting measurement from inches to centimeters you are hitting Common Core Curriculum Math standards that will assist the homeroom teacher during their daily math lessons. What we do in the gym is “real” and can be considered math with real-life application for our students. It is a “Win-Win-Win” for us, the classroom teachers and of course our students. Administrators and parents will love to read these signs/posters and they will automatically bring up a positive conversation.
These PE printables come in both a PDF and JPEG format and automatically print on a 8 ½ by 11 inch sheet of standard copy paper but can easily be “blown up” into a large sign or a poster size document (with a school or store poster maker) for all to see. Print, laminate, post and keep for years to come.
