WEEK #24

K4 this week began class with a movement song called The Balancing act!! We then used recycled milk jugs to practice the skill of catching with an implement. We used yarns balls and practiced many different ways of catching. To end class, we played a movement activity called Catch A Falling Star.

K5 this week started class with a game call Stuck In The Mud. Here we reinforced moving safely in general space. We then spent most of the class doing relay races. However, we didn't just do your typical relay race. Our races were done is ten relay lines. We only had three students in each group and the class as a whole tried to accumulate as many different relay races as they could before the class ended. The student's loved it!!
1st & 2nd grade started class with a fitness activity called Not Me. We then used recycled milk jugs as gloves. We used the milk jugs and practiced catching in many different ways. We then finished class playing a game that reinforced this skill called Catch A Falling Star!!
3rd grade started class with a fitness activity called Not Me. We then reviewed the cues of shooting a basketball and practiced them. We ended class playing a shooting game named Shoot Out!

6th grade this week got the chance to truly get ready for Hoops 4 Heart!! And that's because we do it a little different here at Fairview!! For Hoops 4 Heart, we play Glow In The Dark Scooter Basketball! So, this week, we played scooter basketball with the lights on so that we could get ready for the event this Friday!! At the end of class, we discussed the difference betweening stretching to prevent injury and stretching to become more flexible!
