Hello, everyone! I’m Sarah Fuller, and today I’m excited to share some quick and enjoyable adapted physical education (PE) activities that I’ve been using with my kids. These activities are designed to be inclusive, making them suitable for kids with various needs, including those who use walkers or have autism or other learning disabilities. I hope you find them as fun and engaging as my students do! Don’t forget to show your support by liking, subscribing, and leaving comments with your requests for future videos.
Exploring Adapted PE:
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with one of my professors, Dr. Lauren Lieberman, who has an exciting new book coming out. In collaboration with Dr. Lieberman, I’ve created a couple of videos showcasing activities from her book. I highly recommend checking it out for more valuable resources and ideas.
Activity 1: Bag of Balloons
Let’s dive into one of the activities I want to share with you: the “Bag of Balloons.” All you need is a clear plastic garbage bag filled with six to ten blown-up balloons. To make it even more engaging, have an aide hold the bag while the kids take turns hitting the balloons up into the air. This activity is not only tons of fun but also fantastic for improving hand-eye coordination and tracking skills.
Activity 2: Wall Race Warm-Up
Next up is the “Wall Race Warm-Up.” For this activity, you’ll need a take-out bucket with pictures of cars and a put-in bucket. The kids grab a car from the take-out bucket, navigate it across the roads on the walls (yes, you read that right!), and then put the cars back into the put-in bucket. It’s a fantastic way to incorporate movement, following directions, and a bit of excitement into your warm-up routine.
Your Feedback Matters:
I hope you and your students enjoy these activities as much as we do. As always, I value your feedback and welcome any suggestions or requests for future videos. Thank you for watching, and let’s continue making adapted PE both enjoyable and inclusive for all!
