7th and 8th grade students will begin dressing out tomorrow. Please bring a change of clothes- white or gray t-shirt, shorts (mid-thigh or longer), and athletic shoes.
6th grade will be rotating through the connections classes and learning what each program offers. You will be getting your 6th grade connections schedule next week.
Students played basketball and/or Four square while I measured and weighed students for the Fitnessgram test. We will be doing the PACER, curl-up, and push-up tests next week.
I taught all the girls from my class and Coach Ravenscraft's class today. We played CrossFit baseball. There are 2 teams that compete against each other to score as many runs as possible in a given amount of time. To get a hit, the student had to complete either a forward roll or a log roll. Then had to lunge to 1st base and perform 3 push-ups. Students would then skip to 2nd base and perform 5 jumping jacks. Students would bunny hop to 3rd base and perform 5 mountain climbers, and then slide step to home plate.
We also played 'Octopus Tag' and did some group juggling.
Students new to PE, please read the following syllabus. If you have any medical information that would impact your participation in class, please complete the last page of the syllabus and return.
Today is the last day of the 3rd nine week grading period. If you do not have PE next nine weeks, you can come by the locker room and pick up your clothes before or after school, or before your connections class. I can write you a pass to connections if you're late.
All classes played Touchdown today. We will continue playing this tomorrow. Students will get new connections classes on Friday.
Today we began a unit on pickleball. The students practiced serving with correct form while playing the game. We will continue playing pickleball throughout this week.
Today was the last day of fitness testing. We will be doing make-ups for students that missed any part of the test later in the week. After testing today, we began the dance unit. 6th grade learned the Barn Dance, 7th grade learned The Hustle, and 8th grade learned the basic step of the Shag dance. More dancing tomorrow. Everyone did great!!!
