  • After a few years in the making, I’m excited to share with you my latest creation and 6th book, HyPEd Up II! Physical Education Games to the Max. HyPEd Up II includes 25 new games with 100+ pages and TONS of diagrams and pictures. Being around children has taught me so many things over my 24+ years of teaching elementary physical education. I have embraced the notion that physical educators have a major impact on whether or not physically active children grow up to become physically active adults. With that thought in mind, I have asked myself numerous times… “at the end of the day, the end of the year, the end of my students’ elementary physical education experience, what is the number one outcome I want each child to take away from their time with me?” There are MANY learning outcomes and targets that I establish within my physical education curriculum. However, if I had to choose one overall outcome, it would have to be that all children would leave realizing that movement is FUN and that they want movement to be a part of their lives forever. Ultimately, my goal for each child is that they come to the conclusion that they will not be fully content in life unless they are actively pursuing lifelong fitness. It is my pleasure to present to you HyPEd Up II! Physical Education Games to the Max! A book of games and activities designed with play and fun with a PURPOSE. This book is a guide to enhancing any physical education program by giving the teacher suggestions of activities to be implemented as stand-alone activities or as follow up activities to reinforce a particular learning target(s).
