WEEK #22

K5 this week used hula hoops to get exercise. However, we first participated in an activity called Number Scrabble where the students were given a scrabbled numbered ticket and they had to use a locomotor skill to find them. We then learned to hula hoop, as well as, manipulated them in many different ways. K5 is all about exploring manipulatives. The students really enjoyed this activity. We also tried some hula hoop tricks like jump roping the hoop, balancing with the hoop, and playing a game called Bumper Cars.1st & 2nd grade this week also did the warm up called Number Scrabble along with Fitnopoly. We then spent most of the physical education class discussing and playing an activity called Heart Attack Tag. Here we learned about the five things that hurt your heart. These are being a couch potato, eating junk food, smoking, stress, and body weight.

3rd thru 5th grade is still working on basketball skills (not playing just the game of basketball). The skills we continued to work on this week were dribbling and shooting. The activities we used to reinforce these skills were called Team Shoot Out and 7-Up.

6th grade this week had their test on the five levels of fitness. After the test, we played a game called On the Line Off the Line. This way we got some exercise for the day.

7th/8th grade this week finished up their five levels of fitness unit and began Volleyball. We started to practice the skills of bumping and setting and played a game at the end called Mini Volleyball where we used low nets. Fun was had by all!!
