We are off to a great start. Students are involved in the recess safety and activities unit. The purpose of the unit is to teach safety on the recess equipment and sharing equipment. The activity lessons are teaching our students the many different things that can be done at recess.
Remember to keep jewelry home for safety reasons. Also, remember to wear clothing suitable for Physical Education along with sneakers that are comfortable and fit the foot.
During the last week of September our fifth grades started the biking and safety unit. This unit will last four weeks. Classes will learn how to properly fit a helmet and a bike, inspect the bike and how to ride correctly using hand signals while following road signs. Parents can re-enforce the rules for the road by demonstrating safety around the home and while driving.
Kindergarten through second grades will begin the movement themes such as hopping, skipping, etc. The basic skills are the building blocks of activities that they will participate in throughout the year. Play is an important learning experience for children. Remember to get outside and MOVE!!
