More Magic From the MRE Library!
October here in the MRE library was SO. MUCH. FUN. And we definitely went out with a bang with the awesome storybook pumpkins on display! To say I was impressed would be an understatement. Thank you to everyone who participated; these pumpkins have spread lots of fall cheer around MRE.
In addition to enjoying fall themed activities, students learned all about Hispanic Heritage month! We read books written by Latin-American authors and learned about some of their home countries. We researched buildings and landmarks within those countries, and reconstructed them using the STEM method and various (fun) materials! Students really enjoyed the building process, as well as learning about Latin American countries around the world!
Coding is cool!!
The latest from the gym
Howdy from the Gym! Loving this (sometimes) cooler weather! Speaking of cooler weather, the next part of PE I would like to introduce is:
OOPS! I Forgot My Shoes Station
With the cooler weather on its way in, please keep in mind that wearing proper shoes in PE will significantly reduce injuries that could occur in a movement based class. Please also remember that girls should wear shorts or leggings under dresses/skirts on PE days!
Students may wear any rubber soled shoe that has a back and stays put on the feet.
The following types of shoes are not appropriate for PE:
Cowboy boots, UGGs, rain boots etc, sandals, flip flops, backless shoes, crocs or high heels. Cowboy boots have too high a heel and are often slippery, UGG type boots, rain boots and boots that do not lace up do not provide enough ankle support for pivoting and quick stops.
If your child comes to PE without proper shoes, they will have an alternative PE workout/assignment called the OOPS! I Forgot My Shoes! workout and a reminder note will be sent home.
This assignment is designed to keep the student moving in a manner fitting the shoes they wore to PE that day!
We have talked to the students about planning ahead and packing a pair of tennis shoes in their backpacks to change in to.
