  • nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


  • What I don’t like is there are exercises for body’s strength and in this age children need coordination and flexibility, so it’s good to avoid these exercises

  • Great ideas and games. I will take some ideas and use them for my new youtube channel for my students at home! Thanks for the inspiration! Check out some of my videos if you get a chance, I would love the support!

  • Physical Education sports and games recreation activities more than 200 videos open this youtube link and subscribe and support ������

  • Great exercise activity for both kids and parents. Depending on the distance and number of reps, most of our games end in a draw. I was concerned about your knees cracking on every squat until I realized my squats have the same cracking sound effect lol. Thanks for the video!

  • How to make this please tell me please send it personaly please iam requesting you ��������������������������������������������������������������������

  • As an elementary P.E. teacher this video is very frustrating to watch. That is not how you correctly underhand or overhand throw a ball. He says in the video that the ability to throw is an important P.E. skill and he is correct, however, he did not teach the skill or even do the skill correctly. I understand the intent of the video is to help kids be active at home, but calling this “P.E. activities” is an insult to P.E. teachers who actually know what they are doing and were trained in this field. There is a lot more to teaching skills than people think. For this man to say that these are “P.E. activities” is really demeaning to the teachers and to the subject.

  • Me parece muy bien casi todos los ejercicios, lo que NO me parece tan bien el porque se separan todos los ejercicios en dos grupos CHICOS Y CHICAS, porque no unir su fuerza y destreza de una forma conjunta? Seria mas equilibrado y ameno.

  • thank u I loved this exercise though i would like to see one with just one person rather than two becuase what if u have no one to do it with what will u do

  • Great ideas, just curious as a future coach, did you do all these activities in one day, or were all the activities done and planned ahead of time though out a school year? if so, was managing difficult with space and time?

  • This would never happen no kid would participate in this I’m a kid and I know My whole grade wouldn’t participate in this even if we were told we have to

  • Wonderful activities love it, I have also started a YouTube channel to share my ideas about PE fun games. There are lots of fun games which you can use it for your class or you can play it at home.



  • Great ideas! Very good video. I will probably use some of the activities on my classes. I also made some videos to use in class or to send students to do at home. We are using these in our school during covid times. If you want, give a look. I am glad if you find it useful as I did yours. Cheer

  • A very fun way to engage kids in physical fitness, good job. I have been working on designing some fun PE games to develop child motor skill. you will like it.

  • No me gusta como en la parte que se tienen que abrazar a la nena nadie la abraza y el profesor sigue trabajando o filmando sin hacer nada��������

  • I love all these ideas. I would recommend to not have lines longer than 4 to 5 students to maximize activity time for students. Best regards

  • conductista, sexista, no tiene en cuenta la edad de los chicos para la realizacion de las tareas… CONCLUSION: esta persona es un completo ignorante.
