Hard to believe fall is here already. This week students are working on sharpening their throwing skills on stationary and moving targets. K-1 students practice basic throwing cues, which include pointing at our target, stepping toward our target and throwing at our target. Upper grades utilize the basic cues and focus on transferring their weight while throwing and following through toward their target. Students applied these skills in an anchor game called Pumpkin Patch. Their goal in the game is to release Jack from the pumpkin patch. Please, ask them about it.
This week classes took advantage of the beautiful weather to go outside and enjoy having some room. We practice our kicking patterns. Some classes played soccer, some classes played Penalty Kicks, some classes played Kick Your Room Clean, but all classes developed their kicking skills. Please, ask them about their class.
Students learned a great deal about their fitness this week. Grades 2-4 completed the push-up and curl up sections of the Connecticut Physical Fitness Assessment. students were required to perform curl-ups and right angle push ups to a cadence. Students worked until their muscles were exhausted and as a whole we scored very healthy. Grades pk-1 worked on some outdoor games such as zookeeper and catch four square. Please, ask them about their class.
Hello. This week's class is our first Station Day. During Station Days the students get to partner up and play 12 different games that require motor skills and patterns they have learned in class. Some of the patterns we worked with this week are kicking, striking, throwing, and jumping. Students also had to work together during some cooperative game stations. Please, ask them about their class.
