Dutchtown Primary School was well-represented at the 80th annual Louisiana Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Convention on Nov. 6-7 in Baton Rouge.
The convention, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, is an annual event for health, physical education, recreation and dance professionals.
Presenters travel from across the country to conduct sessions on new and innovative activities for physical education and health professionals, a news release from the school said.
Two Dutchtown Primary School physical education teachers, Kathleen Guedry and Adam LeBlanc, with assistance from teacher Andy Kling, were presenters at the convention.
At Guedry’s session, “Cross and Check,” she demonstrated ways to sneak cross-curriculum ideas into physical education activities to make lessons come alive. By integrating group projects and partner feedback chats, Guedry demonstrated several activities for easy student self-assessments that can be adapted to any lesson or unit.
“Sticks and Songs,” LeBlanc’s session, included line dance and rhythm stick routines for students. Woodlawn Elementary’s Adele Davis assisted LeBlanc.
