K4, K5, and 1st grade this week continued to practice and get ready for Jump Rope for Heart!!! We then manipulated the jump ropes by making letters of the alphabet. To end class, we played new long rope activities called Water Wave, Around the World , and Cat and Mouse.
3rd and 5th grade this week started to learn and practice some jump rope tricks. We also started our first week of basketball skills. Here at Fairview, I don't teach the game of basketball, but we learn the skills of basketball. This week's skill was shooting. We ended class playing a shooting game called Shootout!!
6th grade this week continued their 5 levels of fitness unit. We went over the 2nd and 3rd component of fitness (muscular strength & muscular endurance). We defined it, talked about the benfits, and learned some examples of it. We then participated in a station course where we experienced what it feels like!!!
