Jottings from the Gymnasium April 2016

March Madness in the gym included loud music and lots of amazing dance moves. We have been learning new hip hop moves every day and creating our very own dances! Each dance will include a variety of arm, feet, body and floor moves along with a few gymnastics and original moves. We hope you had the chance to see us during our performances before spring break!  If not, a QR code for each class is available for you to watch at home!

April showers bring rollerblading fever! It's always a favorite unit and safety is our first concern. Students are allowed to bring their own bike helmet and it is very important that is is fitted correctly. Please take time to read over the flyer that came home and adjust all the straps accordingly.

We hope you can enjoy the spring weather by biking, hiking, jumping, throwing and catching outside! Don't forget to check out the Tri4Schools events this spring at www.tri4schools.org. I will be offering rides to students if they need them to the triathlon on April 30 so let me know if I can help out.

Learning to move and moving to learn!

In Mr. Hampton's PE classes with the Kinders and 1st grades, we just wrapped up a dance unit that was mainly focused on hip hop moves. Ask them to show you moves they practiced!

After spring break, we will be doing some ball skills found in basketball, including hand dribbling, passing, and shooting.

Toward the end of April we will be learning rollerblading skills. If your student has a bike or rollerblading helmet, they are encouraged to bring it for PE during that time.
