  2. Whewww, we made it!!!

    August 11, 2017 by misshillpe

    We have been working each day to learn and review rules and expectations with each grade level.  Our theme this year is the Olympics.

    We have learned a new line up procedure and have been working on Social Responsibility with quick social activities.

    Next week we will continue reviewing rules and procedures.  We will transition our 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders into a Social and Personal Responsibility unit and our Kindergarten and 1st grade students will transition into a Personal and General Space Unit!

  5. EVERYBODY DANCE NOWWW!!!!!

    February 16, 2017 by misshillpe

    We have been dancing away in the gym for the last 2 weeks and it has been an AMAZING unit!!! The kids and the PE department have really been enjoying every minute of it!!!

    Kindergarten, First, and Second Grades have learned the Funky Cowboy, Cupid Shuffle, 5,6,7,8 Line Dance, and the Sid Shuffle.  Below are some tutorial videos of the dances we have been learning.

    Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders have learned the Cupid Shuffle, Down South Shuffle, Cotton Eyed Joe, and the 5,6,7,8 Line Dance.

     

    Our older students have been learning about the way blood travels through the heart and the body, playing a tag game called “Heart Tag.”  They have been intruiged by how the heart works hard to ensure the blood is delivered all through the body.  We used an app called Virtual Heart (Apple Products, Andriod has a version but it is not as good as the Apple version), to show the heart beating at a slow, resting rate and to show them how hard it works when they are exercising and their heart rates have increased.

    • The right atrium receives oxygen-poor blood from the body and pumps it to the right ventricle.
    • The right ventricle pumps the oxygen-poor blood to the lungs.
    • The left atrium receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it to the left ventricle.
    • The left ventricle pumps the oxygen-rich blood to the body.

    During testing week we had super short specials.  Only 27 minutes!!! Whewww!!! We have post poned our Team Handball/Throwing and Catching unit until after the break!!!

    We are still working hard with K, 1, 2 on personal and general space.  We have introduced a variety of tag games.  The games start out small with 4-5 players in each square, we then play in 2 blue squares with about 8-10 players.  From there depending on if they are playing in a safe way we open the tag game up to 4 blue squares OR 1/4 of the gym!

    Ask your student what their favorite tag game was!
