So what DO homeschoolers do for Physical Education?? I can say that we have tried plenty different things with not a lot of success. I’ve tried special videos which I’ve purchased for this purpose. I’ve tried Wii workouts.
I’ve even had the privilege of a friend, who happens to be a licensed personal trainer, give my children special training. She showed them how to do different sets and reps of exercises. My oldest in particular, takes great issue with having to do pushups, jumping jacks, and crunches.
Truthfully, I’m still trying to find what works best for us. What will get my kids motivated to WANT to do PE every day? I mean we are talking about kids who would rather play a video game than play outside! In fact, they feel like they are being punished when I make them go outside to play.
We might try Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix as our next workout tool. Seriously, it’s almost as hard to get these children motivated to exercise as it is to get myself to!
