“Hey Team!” “Hey Coach!” How to Herd Cats & Hit the Ground Running

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

According to Wikipedia, “Herding Cats is an idiomatic saying that refers to an attempt to control or organize a set of entities which are uncontrollable or chaotic.”  No doubt 50 kindergartners or 5th graders in the gym constitute an “entity.”  Chaotic perhaps, but most certainly not uncontrollable!  Each and every day, my student’s literally hit the ground running the moment they enter the gym, and the “chaos” is managed as seamlessly as can be expected given the gym is full of Kinder Cats.  In this session, I will share PE Power Words (an interactive management system), and Boogie Woogie Warm-ups (fun fitness routines cued to music).   Without them my instructional life would be harder than bagging flies (which is definitely more challenging than herding cats).
