Grades K-2 (Oct-Nov)
In addition to health related fitness, our students are working on a variety of object control skills including tossing, throwing and catching. Students are developing hand eye coordination using small objects such as bean bags. They are also working on sharing equipment, taking turns and being good sports.
Grade 3-5 (Oct-Nov)
Our students continue to work on their cardiovascular endurance while performing exercises that help develop strength in each of the major muscle groups. They are learning how to "modify" the exercises so they can get stronger and feel successful. Our next two Fitnessgram assessments will measure abdominal and upper body strength. Don't forget to practice at home!
Grades K-2 (Sept-Oct)
Our students are having a great time in the gym working on fitness and locomotor movements. On most PE days you can find them running, skipping, jumping, sliding, galloping and marching around the gym. We use fun songs for every movement and they are learning to explore both personal and shared space.
Grades 3-5 (Sept-Oct)
Our upper grades are working very hard practicing for their upcoming Fitnessgram Assessments. With the PACER test up first, they are doing lots of running so they can build their cardiovascular endurance. Up next the pushup and curl up assessment. They are getting stronger and stronger every day!
