The program is free and open to students ages 5-18.

Wyoming Tribune Eagle CHEYENNE - A large group of students taking a physical education class at the local community college are not yet high school graduates.

This semester, 96 local home-schooled students are taking a free P.E. course at Laramie County Community College, taught by students studying to be P.E. teachers.

Katie Blunn, interim director of the science exercise program, said the home-school P.E. program is the creation of Cindy Henning, interim dean of the School of Health Science and Wellness. Blunn said the program started in spring 2015. "I think they started with, like, 10 kids," she said.

The class takes place every Friday, and Blunn said they teach three age groups - ages 5-9 meet from 9-9:30 a.m., ages 10-14 meet from 9:20-10 a.m. and ages 14-18 meet from 9:50-11 a.m.

On a recent Friday, kids played a tag game called Mr. Fox; played with a brightly colored parachute and balls, which Blunn said helps them with hand-eye coordination and teamwork; and played a game called "Clean Up the Room" with more brightly colored balls.

Blunn said they have room for more kids in the program.

"It really depends on our practicum students and how many we have," she said. "We have a P.E. teaching major at LCCC, and so this is our practicum class." Blunn said Henning started the class to benefit the college's P.E. teaching students.

"It was to get our students the hands-on experience working with children," she said.

The physical education students run the program at varying levels, depending on how many semesters they have been involved.

"I think it's one of the best experiences that they have. It's a unique experience too. You know, you get subbing opportunities at (the University of Wyoming), and you get to go do observation or student-teach, but you don't get to directly have this hands-on (experience)," Blunn said.

LCCC P.E. student Andrew Ehardt said, "It's been a great experience for me to get a better understanding of the best ways to work with students, and it's made me more confident in what I want to do. …
