October Issue

MEET YOUR GYM TEACHERS!

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION!

This month we will be focusing on spatial awareness activities, locomotor skills (running, jumping, hopping, skipping, galloping), pairing and moving together, body management, and balance.


The past few weeks we have also been focusing on the fundamentals of soccer. We have been working on dribbling the soccer ball with our feet trying to keep control of the ball at various speeds while also playing a variety of soccer activities and games.


Some of the games/activities we have introduced and played so far this year:

-Dead Bug Tag

-Freeze Tag

-Red Light/Green Light Tag

-Soccer

-Ultimate Soccer

-Dribble Knockout

-Poison Soccer

-Soccer Tag

-Clean Up Your Backyard

-Playground Safety

GYM SHOES!

We are so lucky at Osgood that our students get to have PE every day! With that being said, students need to have gym shoes with them at school every day.


Shoe tying can be a challenging procedure to try and teach your child. Below is a VERY helpful video showing an easier way to teach your child how to successfully tie their shoes!

EASIEST way how to teach a child to tie shoes!!

Students and their families are all invited! You will be able to pre-purchase tickets that can buy food AND drinks, glow stick necklaces, get your hair dyed, or put on some tattoos! D and J Entertainment has offered their services to us again this year which is amazing so we'll have all the awesome sound and lights and dancing set up in the gym! Students will begin learning dances throughout the month of October to prepare for the songs that will be played at the dance.
