Sports day is right around the corner! Sports Day will be held Tuesday, January 30th. If there is anyone who would like to volunteer you can email Mrs. Williams, one of our 2nd grade teachers or myself. The more the merrier! 

Physical Education:
 

Pre-K, K, 1st and 2nd

This semester I intend to switch gears to throwing and catching instead of kicking, as well as balancing and hand-eye coordination games. I will also supplement each class with exercises aimed toward core  muscle strength to help with posture.

3rd, 4th

To start 2018, we will focus on the game of basketball. We will start by having the gym organized into stations where the students work on each skill of basketball, dribbling, passing, and shooting. After that we will play specific games that focus on a certain skill. My goal is to have the 3rd and 4th grade play a coherent game of basketball. 

5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th

I have discovered that class runs much smoother if the students are constantly moving, ESPECIALLY if they are playing a live game. This semester I will have a live game being played on one side of the gym and the other side will be separated into 4 exercise stations. The students in the exercise stations will rotate every min and after each student has done a minute of each of the 4 exercises, they switch with the students who are playing the game. I will grade the students after each class based on how they perform in each station. If a student works hard at each station, plays the game to the best of their ability, and are sweating and tired at the end of class, they will get a good grade for the day.
