October brought the cooler temperatures and even some snow, but that didn't keep us from throwing and catching together. (Pitured below, Mrs. Moore's 4th grade class engaged in 3 Catch)
Students in grades K-5 also enjoyed a variety of Halloween themed activities including "Pumpkin Juggling", "Capture the Orb", "Poison Pumkins", "Zombie Tag", and "Zombies in the Graveyard" (pictured below).
This month we have begun our Sport Stacking unit. Students in grades K, 1, 2, 3, and 5 will be stacking to help set a new world record!!
For students who would like an opportunity to compete outside of school and see how they "stack up" against the competion click here for a link to this years Colorado Open in Castle Rock. Students will be required to provide their own transportation and pay their own entry fee.
Please continue to support your student by reminding them to wear tennis shoes and bring a water bottle on gym days.
As always feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
In Good Health,
October Phys. Ed News
September has been racing by. 4th and 5th grade students have been preparing for this year's Adams 12 Elementary Cross Country Event scheduled for October 6th. Students have been running on Tuesday and Thursday mornings before school starts. Special thanks to Mr. Swiss who has been helping our runners with pacing by trying to "beat the turtle" and "catch the coyote."
In P.E. class students have been demonstrating their ability to play safely in a dynamic game environment while using their chasing, fleeing, dodging, and tagging skills. Students took a brief journey to the Marvel universe as we played Marvel themed tag games including Avengers Tag and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Students also enjoyed a variety of other tag games including Sharks and Minnows and Chicken Taco Tag (pictured below).
Students have begun transitioning into working on their throwing and catching skills. We began with an emphasis on underhand throwing skills by bowling at the "Disco Bowl" (pictured below).
Its starting to feel a bit more like fall outside. While the weather is getting a bit cooler, P.E. is still held outside periodically. On PE. days please help remind your student to wear appropriate footwear and bring their water bottle, and a sweatshirt for those cool fall days.
In good health,
