WEEK #15

K4 & K5 started class using Uno Cards to play a spin wheel game called Uno Fitness! We discussed what fitness means and why it's important for our bodies and mind. We then used plastic bags and manipulated them in many different ways. We used them to develop movement skills as well as creative movement development. We ended class playing an activity called Bag Flag Tag.
