  • Why this presentation
      – My background
  • What would an ideal warm up include?
  • What would an inappropriate warm up
    look like?
Warm Up Options (K  12)

   • Tag Games (K-12)
     – Intensity should be walking at first, may
       increase intensity later
     – Example tag games
Warm Up Options (K  12)

   Dry Erase Board (4-12)
     – As Ss enter gym, read and execute the
       warm-up listed on the dry erase board
       • “Square root of 9 laps followed by 20 lunges, 20
         crunches and 10 push-ups”
       • Laps on outside, exercises in middle
       • Can be cross-curricular
     – Can also specify what Ss are doing that day
       thus eliminating the age old question!
Warm Up Options (K  12)

   Line to Line (K-2 or 3)
     – Ss sit along a line for attendance.
     – Move from line to line and back specified number of times in
       specified manner.
     – May emphasize concept taught in previous lesson
         • “When you hear the music, move three times from line to line. Each time,
           use a different pathway.”
     – Don’t stretch K-3 students, it’s a waste of time. Good to
       have a warm up and call it that; helps to convey its

       • Commercial cards –
         purchased from Fitdeck
         sportime, and others

   • Gym Spots (4-12)
     – Ss are assigned squad or attendance spots
       (gym spots) where they sit upon entering
       gym. Spots are formed by markings on the
       floor (under varnish) or painted on wall
       (letters on one wall, #’s on another)
Warm Up Options (K  12)

     – Ss construct individualized warm up based on
       Fitnessgram results. Must address all HRF
       components and be seven exercises total
     – Ts provide handout of suggest activities. SS must
       turn in their warm up for a grade
        • Assignment, minimal equipment exercises, flexibility
     – Gym is divided into areas for each HRF component
       with relevant equipment at each (stretching: mats,

     – Ss graded partly by their level of involvement (two
       samples: 1, 2)

          rope” inside a hoop, 6 – bosu balls ofr each student. Keep
          this warm-up setting for a couple of lessons. Use students
          to help with setup and take down (number of squads
          equals number of stations.
Warm Up Options (K  12)

   • Whew!! Your thoughts
Group Ideas

   • Playing deck of cards
     – Face cards = cardio (jacks=shuffle etc)
     – 2 = crunches, 3 = burpees etc
     – Sheet equates cards to exercises
   • Floor ladders
   • Group jump ropes with partners, rotate,
     exercises on other side
Avoiding Mistakes

   • Follow the warm up, as much as possible
     with activity and not sitting for long periods
   • Plan ahead for the warm up to prevent
   • Ideal warm ups have general whole-body
     activity followed by flexibility but this can
     be difficult with limited class time!!

  • What are you currently doing for your
    warm up that hasn’t been discussed?
