Good Sports News!
Last Month's Action!
In PE class, students in the lower grades have been learning the rules of the gym and how to play safely when they’re in PE. Students have practiced different locomotor movements and have had a blast exploring different ways of playing with some of our favorite equipment like hula hoops, fit boards, and playground balls. Students in the upper grades have been participating in cooperative team building activities like Shipwreck and the Crazy Card Challenge. Students have also completed fitness stations to get ready for our fall FitnessGram fitness tests. Ask your child which fitness test is their favorite and which is their least favorite!
Students will start a soccer unit - depending on your child’s grade level, they will practice various soccer skills, participate in foot and eye coordination activities, along with soccer stations and small sided soccer games.
Practice your Form!
We know that it’s hard to keep track of the rotating specials schedule, but please make sure your child wears sneakers/tennis shoes on the days that they have PE! If you need a copy of your child's rotation schedule reach out to their teacher for a copy, most teachers have also put a copy on their green folders.
