K4 and K5 started class with a muscular strength and endurance activity called Monster Tag. We then played Stop, Drop, and Roll to learn and practice fire safety for Fire Safety Week!
1st grade this week started class with a warm-up activity named One Step Behind. We then discussed how exercise can be done without equipment and learned that all we really need is our body!!! We played Go Touch and Beep, Beep Times Up to practice this concept!! To end class, we played Bippity, Boppity Boo, The Witch Is After You!!!!! It is a great moving in general space activity!!!

3rd thru 5th grade developed their muscular strength and endurance with two games called Sumo Wrestling and Dagger!!! We then went outside to play Sharks and Minnows. This game is a perfect way to get ready for the Pacer Test. It also develops the movement skill of moving in space!!
6th grade continued to develop their throwing and catching skills with an activity called Pass & Run!!! We started class playing Sharks and Minnows to develop our cardiovascular systems!!!!


K4 and K5 this week started class with a movement song called Singing In The Rain. We then did an activity named I See...You See.... to exercise our muscles, bones, heart, and mind. To finish class, we manipulated yarn balls and played Monster Tag!!!
1st thru 5th grade this week started class doing Line Graph Workout Cards. These were used to get us ready for our fitness tests!!! We then learned and practiced the physical skills of rolling and throwing overhand with an activity called Pin Guard, a Fairview classic!
6th grade this week, because of rain, couldn't continue its throwing and catching unit activities. So, we did the Pacer Test, a cardiovascular endurance evaluation, and we played Pin Guard. All the students did a fantastic job. I love all their effort!! 


K4, K5, 1st grade this week started class playing I See... You see...! We then learned and practiced being in our self space with a movement song. We finished class manipulating deck rings and playing a movement game called Soccer Tag!!!
2nd & 3rd grade this week started class with a 5 Levels of Fitness activity named Musical Fitness. We then learned to use our bodies better by going over the cues of rolling and dodging for a game called Jailbird.

4th & 5th began class participating in a cardiovascular endurance game called Snatch It. We then went over how to to work as a team and did some cooperative activities. We used a tarp and the students were given some challenges to try to accomplish with their group.
6th grade this week continued practicing their throwing and catching skills. We first did a muscular strength and endurance fitness warm-up called Dagger and Sumo Wrestling (Not real wrestling). We then reviewed the throwing and catching cues and played a game called Pass & Go to reinforce these cues!!
