Weekly Update Nov. 16

PreK1. This week in PE we introduced two new things to the classes. First, we introduced music to the classroom. If the music is playing, we can play. If the music stops, we must stop and sit down. Music brings a fun and exciting element to PE. The second thing we did was begin using stations. Stations are different areas in the gym where you can do different things. Students must stay in that area for a certain amount time and then we can all switch. At the end of the class, all students will have been to each station. We used three stations this week which included: hurdles, mat play, and hula hoops. I look forward to using stations in more classes.

 

PreK2. We continued using stations this week. I like using stations because its a nice way for students to try and experiment in multiple areas in a single class. This weeks focus was balls. The four stations were: basketball, hitting a target, dribbling, and rolling toward a target.

 

Kindergarten. We started each class with some flexibility and core strengthening movements. We were doing movements such as bear crawls, wheelbarrows, and walking like giants. We then continued to progress with out underhand throwing skills. We played a game in which two teams were trying to knock down cones. The classes were fun and had competitive matches.
