I'M A REGULAR EDUCATION TEACHER. I DON'T HAVE A BACKGROUND IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION. WILL I BE ABLE TO USE THESE PACKAGES WITH MY STUDENTS?
Yes! The StartFIT® packages were designed specifically so that general educators and physical educators alike could use them. The lesson plans are very detailed and a "teaching tips" section will help you feel comfortable engaging your class in physical activity. Plus, some of the lessons bring in math and language concepts, so they're perfect for the classroom!
OVER 200 PIECES OF EQUIPMENT SOUNDS LIKE A CHALLENGE TO MANAGE. HOW WOULD I KEEP IT ALL ORGANIZED?
The StarFIT® Package includes a storage cart that houses all equipment, mostly in bins. Labeling the outside of each bin with what equipment should go in it helps keep things organized. Also, posting a picture of the whole cart on one of the bins helps remind people how it should look. The included Master Equipment List and an Equipment Check Out Sheet help manage sharing the equipment. Checking the cart at the end of each day also helps maintain order.
