A Message From Ms. Saenz

Hello Cubs,


Reminder:

If you have any books from your previous school (Kiker, Baranoff) please return them to Bear Creek and I will make sure the librarians receive them. Both Kiker and Baranoff are missing many books and some of our cubs have them at home. Let's help return them so that other students will have the opportunity to read and enjoy them.


Thank you all!

Ms. Saenz

A Message From Ms. Schultz

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend and are having a wonderful start to your week!


Not much new to add here this week. We will be working on soccer and basketball skills (ball control, dribbling, passing, and shooting) and will continue to have conversations about the importance of sleep and stress management/relief.


Remote learners will need some kind of ball/object that will bounce in order to practice our hand dribbling. Please reach out to me if your family needs assistance with providing that equipment; I delivered equipment to several homes last week and am happy to bring you whatever your remote learner needs to fully participate in PE. Almost anything can be used to practice foot dribbling.

A few examples aside from a ball include:

  • sock or paper balls
  • stuffed animals
  • pillow
  • beanbag


Student expectations, rubrics, learning resources, and previous lessons for current units are always posted on the grade level PE BLEND Pages. I have updated all PE BLEND Pages to reflect our fourth quarter material.


Fourth quarter PE grades will come from:

  1. Participation
  2. Volleying (we didn't get the assessment in during the 3rd quarter, so that's how we started this nine weeks)
  3. Hand Dribble
  4. Foot Dribble
  5. Sleep / Stress Management


FitnessGram will be included in most lessons this nine weeks. Click on the BCE FitnessGram Website button below for more information on FitnessGram. Our 3-5 grade students will really get into the assessment piece of FitnessGram towards the end of the month. I'll keep y'all posted here and the kiddos will hear from me about what's coming during PE classes :)


Please continue to use the PE BLEND Courses as your first source of information regarding PE, and message me through Blend or email with any further questions. Each grade level PE BLEND Course is linked below.


Thank you for your continued support!
