WEEK #21

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.
2nd grade this week also continued to learn and practice the skill of jump roping. We also started to learn some jump rope tricks. Some of them included the bell, ski, straddle, and scissors. We ended class playing a bunch of long rope activities. They included High Fence Low Fence, Water Wave, Tic Toc, Around the World, and Cat & 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!!!
7th/8th grade this week started their new quarter. We spent the first day getting to know each other. We then learned how we were going to be graded. And, of course, we exercised playing Clothes Pin and Scarve Pull.
