August 20, 2018: We spent our first week on conditioning. We walked everyday. Following our walk, we took took turns leading a variety of stretching exercises. Mr. Allen did a fantastic job at coordinating the activities. We rounded out our week on Friday by playing an exciting game of kickball. Everyone got a chance to kick the ball and play outfield.
August 27, 2018: We continued our activities of walking to warm up and to cool down. We had some awesome relay races after we learned to do the frog hop and duck walk! Great job everyone. On Thursday, the students voted to play kickball again on Friday.
September 4, 2018: Fitness is a goal for all of our athletes so we warm up everyday by walking and cool down everyday by walking. This week we learned how to do the bear crawl and practiced the frog hop and duck walk. On Friday, we divided into teams and played basketball. Here is one of our star athletes.
September 10, 2018: Ready, set, go! Let's do our segment of cardio by walking to warm up and cool down. This week we will participate in manipulating light balls on a parachute to see how high we can bounce them and how many we can keep on the parachute. Thursday is a block day so we will start with a short period of warm up and then rotate between stations. One new station will be bowling. The activity is modified by adding a ramp for students to roll the bowl down. I will try to do my best to capture some of these moments by adding pictures. I get so involved in the activity, I don't pause to take a picture. Have a fun week.
September 17, 2018: Our first field trip date has been set! It is Wednesday October 3, 2018. We will be having a Field Day at the Insperity Sports Complex in Humble. We will practice the skills we have learned in our Integrated Athletics class. This week we will continue our fitness quest by warming up and cooling down by walking. One fun activity will be playing parachute balls in which students see how long they can keep a ball or balls on a parachute being waved up and down. It is definitely a task in which we will learn how to work together to complete a task. Relay races will make up our activities for Wednesday; basketball, a favored activity, will be played on Friday. Let's have a fun week!
September 24, 2018: This week is going to be so fun and filled with activities. On Monday, we have the use of a projector so we will engage in Wii fitness exercises. New stretches will be learned from watching and participating this material. Let's move! Each day, we will start our fitness routine by walking laps to warm up. Stretching is a vital component of a fitness routine so that getting in shape is done safely; therefore, we will have a variety of students lead the group in daily stretching exercises. On Thursday, we will participate in activities such as seeing how many times you can do an exercise in 30 seconds, playing around the world basketball, and bowling. We have an exciting event coming up on October 3, 2018: Integrated Athletics Field Day at Insperity Sports Complex. We will interact with our fellow Life Skills and Applied Skills peers in this district to participate in a variety of activities such as Drum Fit, kickball, and conditioning exercises.

October 1, 2018: This week is finally here! I have been looking so forward to participating with our Wildcat athletes in Integrated Athletics' first Field Day at Insperity Adaptive Sports Complex in Atascosita. I hope every one has a great day. There will be covered seating areas and an air conditioned room to cool off if it gets too hot! One thing I am particularly looking forward to is PAWS fit in which students will interact with a furry, four-legged friend. Check out the activities listed below to see what fun we will be having. This week is our final week to practice our conditioning and team building skills as a unit. We will continue, however, to make sure athletes say conditioned and able to participate in team activities. Everyday, we will always start off with a warm up walk and basic stretching exercises. Our next unit will be basketball!

Athletes especially enjoyed the PAWS fit activity with the friendly dogs. They were so awesome doing pushups and stretching exercises with their handler. The kickball game each school got to participate in was enjoyed by all! It was beautiful weather although it was a little hot! There was plenty of shade under the pavilion and plenty of ice cold water to drink. Thank you to all the coaches who helped make this event such a success. Well, this week we start practicing basketball! We will practice passing the ball, shooting baskets, and defending maneuvers. Of course, we will start off our activities by warming up with walking several laps around the gym. Stretching exercises will get each athlete prepared to participate in the activities for the day. We will continue to promote good sportsmanship and team building skills as we work on our basketball tasks. Our next Integrated Athletics event will be Wednesday November 28 at Summercreek High School. Let's have an active, fun week!October 15, 2018: This week brings us new activities...basketball.

Our efforts are building up to our Integrated Athletics Basketball Tournament on November 28, 2018 at Summer Creek High School. Let's go Wildcats; let's beat our rivals and have fun. We won't forget, however, to warm up with walking exercises and stretch as a group. Let's have a great 1st week of basketball!October 22, 2018: This week the integrated athletics students will participate in skills related to the team game of basketball.

Shooting the ball will be a favored activity of all!October 29, 2018: We have a fun-filled full week of great athletic related activities. Practice makes perfect it is said so we will practice our chest pass, bounce pass, dribbling skills, and shooting baskets. We have a great system of using hula hoops to create a basket target for those students who can't reach as high. That way, everyone gets to experience success at making baskets. We absolutely have a great wildcat team! Thursday bring us to an exciting scrimmage. Let's see how many baskets we can make! Remember, athletes, to pass the ball as you make your way across the court. Here's a picture of one of our athletes that enjoys walking in a gait trainer! Great job, Alexcia. Have a great week!November 12, 2018: We are going to have another great week practicing for our upcoming district wide basketball tournament on November 28 at Summercreek High School. Student athletes will enjoy practicing dribbling, passing, and shooting skills! Our peers will be there to cheer everyone on! Everyone has done an excellent job of passing the ball and shooting baskets during our practices. Teams are divided by skill level so everyone gets multiple chances to participate. Everyday we start out our basketball practice by walking warm up laps around the gym to limber us up for our practice. Thanks to everyone who helps transport the balls to and from the gym. Let's keep up the great work!November 26, 2018: November 28 is our district wide integrated athletics basketball tournament at Summer Creek High School!

Let's get moving!December 10, 2018: Well, we got an update from our head PE coach that we will start our track and field training after we come back from the winter break. Until then, we will have fun playing a variety of games to practice skills we've learned this year. Included in these activities will be time to practice chest and bounce passes with a basketball, shoot baskets, play kickball, and do a variety of stretches. Because fitness routines are important, we will spend some time walking to warm up and cool down. One day this week we will try our hand at bowling. Ready, set, go!January 7, 2019: Track season is upon us! Beginning in January, we will practice different track and field events such as relay races and the long jump.

Just as we did before, we will make good use of our time in Integrated Athletic in the nice warm gym by doing our warm up walk, practicing stretches, and practicing relays. When we need a break from running relays, we will play an exciting game of basketball or kickball. Everyone has a great time! Have an awesome week, my team!January 28, 2019: Hopefully this week we can go outside this week and start some fun training on track and field events. Our students will participate in track and field activities such as the softball throw, relays, sprints, and long jump. We had a blast practicing the long jump last week.

Everyday we practice warm up and stretching skills to get us ready for the big event on March 6. I want to send a huge thank you to all staff and students who will participate in our event.

Of course, for our skilled athletes, we will have a competitive scrimmage on Thursday during our long class period.
