P.E. and the Open Classroom Philosophy

Whole Child Learning at the O.C. also involves trying many different sports and games to practice:

  • teamwork
  • taking turns
  • build strength & coordination
  • emotional and physical self-regulation
  • while having have fun at the same time

Learning playground game basics teaches us skills that make it easy to go anywhere and play with anybody.

In addition to regular P.E. classes, we take frequent field trips to recreation centers and offer a variety of after school activities throughout the year.
