When you don’t need to get out of bed, go to work

CCSF physical education students will be able to use flashcards to improve their reading, but will be limited to three exercises per week.

The move is part of a wider push by CCSFs to offer a more flexible curriculum for students to get the most out of their physical education time. 

CCSF’s new curriculum will not be compulsory for new students, and they can take it up and move on to a wider range of subjects. 

“We want to make sure that students have access to the best possible physical education that meets their needs and is safe for their health,” said Chris O’Brien, a senior education specialist at CCSFS. 

In addition to the new flashcards and other exercises, students will have access, through their coursework, to a new online library, which will include videos, audio and other learning materials. 

Students will also have access in the fall to CCSs new curriculum for children, which includes a new physical activity called “toy-to-life” which is aimed at introducing the child to toys, as well as more traditional physical activity such as walking and running. 

 This new curriculum is aimed specifically at children aged 5 to 12, and will include a variety of physical activities, including a variety that students can take up and continue on to their education.

“The new curriculum has a focus on children that are at risk of obesity, and it is also designed to support children to engage in more physical activities that promote physical health,” Mr O’Briens said.
