WEEKS 4 & 5

WEEKS 4 & 5 CONTINUED WITH BASIC SOCCER SKILL DEVELOPMENT.  PASSING DRILLS WERE INCORPORATED INTO THE LESSONS.  STUDENTS PASSED TO STATIONARY TARGETS AS WELL AS MOVING TARGETS.  WEEK 5 WAS DEDICATED TO KICKING FOR ACCURACY.  "TOE" KICKS WERE DISCOURAGED AND PROPER PLACEMENT OF THE PLANT FOOT WAS INTRODUCED AND IT'S RELATIONSHIP TO THE PATH THE BALL WILL TRAVEL.  ENTHUSIASM WAS HIGH AND MOST STUDENTS ENJOYED THE LEAD UP GAMES AND DRILLS.  AS ALWAYS, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS I CAN BE REACHED At dvillegas@vtsd.com

Week 3

Basic soccer skills were introduced and incorporated into a simple lead-up game of Sharks and Minnows.  Students were shown warm up drills including toe taps and box touches.  Some students were already familiar with these activities through their participation in organized soccer while others were trying them for their first time.  Drag backs and using your body were introduced as ways to elude defenders and maintain control of the ball.  Controlling the ball and looking up when travelling were teaching points that were emphasized.  I discouraged "kicking and catching up" and demonstrated that defenders can easily steal the ball when this technique is used.  Most students participated with a high level of entusiasm.

Week 2

Week 2 has come to a close.  The playground safety unit has concluded and students are aware of usage and expectations during recess.  Here at Rolling Hills we stress character education - caring, respect, responsibility, citizenship - and there is no better place to demonstrate these traits than the playground when there are approximately 100 students using the equipment.  It is essential to work together to ensure safety and of course fun times and exercise for all.  I ask that you please send your child with a pair of sneakers every day as to ensure full participation during walk/run and P.E. classes.  I would like to thank the few people who have been visiting this site.  If anyone has any questions regarding ANYTHING, I can be contacted at dvillegas@vtsd.com.  Have a great week

First Week of P.E.

Hello!!

     Our first week has come to an end at Rolling Hills.  Students were introduced to the playground equipment and instructed on proper usage and safety requirements.  It is important that students follow these guidelines to ensure a fun, safe recess for all students participating.  Children with open-toed footwear or shoes with heels are not allowed to use the climbing apparatus.  Also, improper footwear will keep students from participating in P.E. classes and will limit their exercise for walk-run as well.  P.E. time is very limited at this level making it ever more important to have your child ready to participate in walk-run every day (weather permitting) and their assigned P.E. days.  If you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached at dvillegas@vtsd.com.  

                                                                                           Thank you.
