Physical Education:  Let’s get moving!

The students in grade Pre-K will work with the hula hoops this week.  The students in Grades K-5 will try a few fitness activities that should really get them moving!  The activities will help the students to develop listening skills, muscular endurance, muscular coordination, agility skills, body control, teamwork and cooperation skills.

 

Rising New York Road Runners

The students in Grades Kindergarten through Six are participating in the “Rising New York Road Runners” program again this year.  This is a free program sponsored by the New York City Marathon.  The activities and laps the students take part in during Physical Education class count as movement and mileage for the program.  The students receive incentive awards for achieving designated mile levels.  The goal of the program is to encourage the students to be active.  The students work very hard to achieve their miles!

The students have accumulated 2000 miles so far this year!!  WOW!!   Congratulations, Young Runners!!

 

Pre-K Library: “The more you read, the more you’ll know!!” Dr. Seuss

Thursday is library day for all students in Pre-K!!   The students will work with their theme of the week,  healthy habits.  If time allows, the students will look for the Pre-K Letter of the Day as they “read” the books in their classroom library basket.

 

Health:  Spread kindness everywhere!!! 

Students in Grades 3-5 have health class once a week.  They are continuing their journey through the Circulatory System.  The students are exploring the job of the system and how the system works.  They are looking at the parts of the system as well as the how those parts work in the system.  This week’s focus will be on following the path a drop of blood takes through the body.  Terms to be introduced include arteries, veins, capillaries, valves, vena cava, plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, fibrin and scabs.

Here’s to a school year full of learning, discovering and special memories!!

Thank you for sharing the gift of your children!!  They are such a blessing!!
