Mr. Snyder

Hello everyone and good morning!

Today is a beautiful day so for this workout I'd love if you were able to get outside and do the workout outdoors.  This workout is a tough one.  I also want you to look at and do some of the activities on the Stress Management Choice Board.    

Make sure you are warming up and stretching before and after the workout.  For a warm up do a light jog or jog in place, some leg stretches and arm stretches.  After the warm up start the workout. 

As always, let me know that you've completed the workout and the Choice Board.

Stay safe and healthy!
Mr. Snyder

Friday, April 17, 2020 HPE lesson

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well and starting to get into the swing of this new schedule.  I understand if you are feeling overwhelmed with all of this so please use these lessons as a way to help you unwind.  Exercise is good for the soul and mind as well as your body.  

For this unit we are focusing on our personal fitness.  The exercises I selected will focus on certain muscles of the body.  Each week we'll focus on different muscle groups.  This week we'll focus on our arms.  On the workout you'll see levels, we'll use the levels for the different grades.  Level 1 is 6th grade, Level 2 is 7th grade and Level 3 is 8th grade.  Each level does each activity but for different set amounts.  For example, 6th grade does each exercise for 3 sets, 7th grade does them for 5 sets and 8th grade does them for 7 sets.  Each grade rests up to 2 minutes between sets.  

If you're feeling up to it and want to increase how many repetitions you do for each exercise then with each set add 5 repetitions to the exercises.  For example, with the shoulder taps, in the first set is has you doing 10 so for the next set make it 15 and so on.  

Below is the workout that you need to follow.  Send me an email when you completed the workout.  I will be available through email if you have any questions.

Have a great day and stay healthy!

For today's challenge I want you to review our net and wall game unit that we did earlier in the year.  I know you may not be able to get outside to play handball or something like that but this activity is something you can do inside.  All you will need is a wall, a bucket/basket of some type and either a soft inside ball or a rolled up sock.  Here's the activity:
1.   Find an open space on a wall
2.  Place the bucket/basket 12 inches from the base of the wall
3.  Take 5 steps back from the bucket/basket.  This is where you will toss the ball or rolled up sock
4.  You will take 10 shots trying to ricochet the ball or sock off the wall into the bucket/basket.
5.  After you take the 10 shots move back an additional 5 steps from the bucket/basket and take 10 more shots.
6.  Let me know how many you made from 5 steps back as well as from 10 steps back. 

This is something you can do with a sibling or relative.  Have fun with it.  If you want try to add angles to your shots.  


I hope everyone is still doing well.  I've gotten a couple of emails regarding going into the school to get personal items out of lockers, what I can tell you is, if you haven't heard yet, no one is allowed in the school at this time unless you're an essential employee and with permission from the Superintendent.  When I know the school will be open I'll let you know.

In regards to PE, I hope you all got the activity log and are working on that.  Remember it's for 2 weeks so do your best.  This is not graded, it's just a way for you to get some exercise in during this time.   Exercise Log.docx

If you need me, please send me an email anytime, I check it regularly.  Please let me know how you're doing, I miss you all!

Again, stay safe and if you can, get outside, safely, it's a beautiful day!!


I hope you are all doing well and staying safe.  I'm attaching an exercise log that I would like you to complete.  This can be done individually or as a family.  Let me know how you are doing with it and if possible send me your log so I can see how you're doing.  I'm also going to send this via messenger as well.  As always let me know if you have questions.
