Top 5 Youtube channels that have transformed my teaching
music express youtube channel
I stumbled across this YouTube channel looking for dances I could do with my K-2 students. What a find!!! Super catchy songs and you can't help but smile while you are doing these dances!
matt pomeroy's youtube channel
Matt has some great videos on his YouTube channel. First off, he teaches middle school in Wisconsin. His videos revolve around that age group. That being said, he has an awesome collection of videos from skill development to fitness. His passion for Physical Education is evident. Great job Matt!!!
vitathread youtube channel
So far, Vitathread's Youtube channel has just a few videos but the videos they do have are awesome. Go to the "P.E. Website" page on this site to read a review of their great site. Below is a short video on how to hop. I've shown these videos to my students on how to perform the skills and I have a seen a dramatic improvement in their performance. All my students want to look just like "J"!!! Click on the button below the video to go to their YouTube channel. Ask them to make more!!!
mike graham's youtube channel
If there is someone out there in the world that is most like me, I think Mike is it. He is an incredible teacher who has tons of great ideas. His YouTube channel showcases those great ideas. Take a look, you won't be disappointed!!!
collin brooks' youtube channel
I "met" Collin on Twitter about a year ago. In addition to being a regular contributor on Twitter, he is actively involved in his state's SHAPE organization. He has some great ideas on integrating technology in Physical Education. The only complaint I have about his YouTube channel is that I wish he would put more on it! Great work Collin.
joe mccarthy's youtube channel
I've been following Joe on Twitter for some time now and only recently realized he maintained a YouTube channel (My bad Joe!). Take a look. He has tons of great activities on his channel.
OK, so the videos from these guys may not be "P.E.", but they are incredibly entertaining and they are sports related. Trick shots with basketballs, bowling balls, ping pong balls, etc… Watching these videos gave me an idea: Have students create their own "Dude Perfect" videos creating some wild shots of their own. Believe me, after watching some of their videos, you'll be motivated to try some active outdoor shots of your own. Clean, appropriate, and guaranteed to make you smile. "Pound It, Noggin'" time!!!
If you like this game, then you have to check out all the rest of Kristine Ellis' videos. They are all awesome!!!
Great warm-up activity for basketball. Keeps kids moving!!!
