Announcing the new SPARK Inclusive PE Guidebook, Workshop, and Starter Pack!
The SPARK Inclusive PE Guidebook provides over 200 pages of resources designed for Physical Education (PE) teachers who teach a general PE class that includes students with disabilities. The guidebook provides information and strategies for creating an inclusive environment so that all students can be successful by participating in an authentic and enjoyable PE class. The guidebook includes skill adaptations, lesson modifications, sample lesson plans, and instructional strategies for 12 disability categories.
The Inclusive PE Specialty Workshop is half or full day, on-site workshop that provides strategies to create an inclusive environment, adapt activities and equipment, and accommodate students during skill-based instruction. Workshop participants learn how to modify lessons plans for specific disabilities and how to better meet the needs of their students. Workshop activities provide opportunities for hands-on learning in order to create an inclusive environment that benefits ALL students.
The Sportime Inclusive PE Starter Pack provides expert-selected products, specifically designed to enable success, to substitute for a variety of physical education equipment to keep all students physically active and engaged during PE. The pack includes a variety of tactile balls and bell balls, plus a pop-up target, foam noodles, juggling scarves, jingle bracelets, directional arrows, numbered spot markers, CatchPads, a lightweight exercise band, and a Califone hearing protector.
