With only two days of school this week- it is a perfect time to wrap up football! Students will be playing Bronco ball during PE. It is a game much like ultimate frisbee. Students will be divided into two teams, they will be allowed to run with the football when they are touched they must throw the football to a teammate who has not caught the ball yet. Once they make it down the court, they score a point for their team. It is a high energy game, that takes all members of the team to be involved!! We did a lead up game called 5 passes last week to prepare us for game play and for moving to get open. It should be a great time!
Kindergarten we will continue with our listening skills, building up our cardiorespiratory system, recognizing how movement impacts our heart and moving through space without collisions!! (I call it “keeping our eyes on the road”) We will also be working on our letter names during our active games, hoping to help them make the letter names concrete in their brains, and help them get one step closer to reading!!
First grade will be working on throwing and catching skills, we will put those two skills into action in active tag games. I have been using music to cue them when to “play catch” and when to chase their partner! THEY ARE DOING GREAT!! I really want to get throwing with opposition down, so they have the skill to use all year-long in all of the different activities that we will be doing!
TWO DAYS of SCHOOL- enjoy the extra family time!!!
Muscular Strength is our new secret word! Muscular Strength is one of the components of fitness PE Explorers will be learning about and building this quarter/year!
Today when they come they must do a push-up to demonstrate muscular strength!! Remind them to keep their fingers pointing forward, thumbs below their shoulders, tummy tight, bottom flat and feet together. They must lower themselves to a 90 degree angle at the elbow!
The first 5 students earn a cool bag that states- If you can dream it you can do it!” Watch to see who makes it to Mrs. Adams first in the morning!!
We had 6 winners on the secret word last week! Craig, Joe, Dustin, Isabell, Emiley, and Tanner all earned a bookmark and a bag of POPCORN!!! Way to go BLOG FOLLOWERS!!
Week 5 we are applying our football throwing skills in a variety of activities. We will be playing the game of 500 the first PE day and playing an active game called 5 Passes the second day. In the game of 500 students earn points for catching the football, catching it after one bounce or collecting the ball. It is a fun game that integrates math into movement activities!
The second day we will do a throwing game where teams are trying to complete 5 receptions in a row. The activity is a great one for building teamwork and applying strategies of game play.
Kinder and first will work on throwing skills, and apply those skills to stationary targets, while working on spacial awareness.
