Roller skating is one of those units that my students look forward to every year. It doesn’t matter if it’s the first week of school. I’ll have kids coming up to me asking me, Mr. Graham when are we going to roller skate? And typically we do that at the end of January, so you know the enthusiasm is really high when they’re asking for it. They want to know when it’s going to take place at the beginning of the school year, and I really like that unit because it’s a break from more of my traditional teaching units, and it’s an opportunity for me to invite parents into the gym, which, to be honest, really gives many of them a perspective that may be very different from their own childhood PE experiences.
