Today was our last day of playing badminton. There was lots of improvement in skills over the past week and a half. We will have a guest speaker tomorrow that will discuss the importance of staying active for a lifetime. We will still be dressing out and participating in an activity.
My classes began a unit on badminton. Today we learned the correct way to serve the birdie and practiced that skill. Students will be skills tested on the serve later in the unit.....after several days of practice.
