K4 thru 2nd grade this week participated in fitness time with The Freeze (K4 & K5) and Star Wars (1st & 2nd). We then practiced catching a ball with a glove!! However, we don't have real gloves so we used milk jugs instead. I cut the bottom off of 2 gallon milk cartons and used them as gloves. We manipulated the milk jugs in many different ways. We ended class with a game called Catch A Falling Star.
3rd thru 5th grade this week played Deal or No Deal for their 5 levels of fitness warm-up. We then reviewed the basic basketball shooting cues (BEEF). To practice, we laid down on the floor and practiced keeping our elbows in and snapping our wrists with a partner. To end class, we either played 7-up (3rd & 4th) or Cone Shootout (5th).
7th/8th grade this week played Deal or No Deal for their 5 levels of fitness warm-up. We then started our first day of pickle ball. We went over the rules and cues of serving and practiced this skill. We ended class playing the serving game King and Queen of the Court and Hit & Go.
