Every 1st and 2nd grader has been jogging each week for 5 minutes and signed the 15-minute HHC wall. We’ve now accumulated a total of 3,555 minutes! This program is very motivating and encourages students to move and be active. We are trying to predict how many minutes we can accumulate by the end of the school year.
Kindergartener’s, 1st and 2nd graders have been rock climbing, cup stacking, roller racing, jumbo stacking, and flag waving during PE classes. Please check my website and look at my December 2011 photo album.
This year, a pre-school class comes to the gym for 30 minutes of fun-filled activities. During the holidays in both preschool and kindergarten classes, we combined literacy and PE activities. After an opening warm-up, students listened to a Thanksgiving story. Then, the students were introduced to the storybook stations. This was a wonderful way to integrate reading and movement.
Happy New Year!
