Second Quarter News

Each of your children have grown so much this quarter. It is amazing to see the physical, social and academic changes that occur in them each week. I am so fortunate to spend so much time with them each day. We have continued to study the fitness components. Each component is represented by a fitness hero (Kid Cardio, Miss Muscle, Mr. Flexibility, and Endurance Man) To incorporate we have been using a Tabata style workout so that each fitness component can be addressed in short period of time.
Each class has practiced the sports skills of throwing and catching. We have thrown footballs, flying discs, and even pigs. Lead up games involving throwing were played. Flying disc golf was a great favorite for second grade. We used pool noodles to begin striking skills which will follow late into 3rd quarter. Currently we are dribbling, passing and shooting balls.
