Happy New Year from the AMP team! We hope you and your families had a restful and memorable break and you’re ready to tackle the last semester of the 2017-2018 school year. Here’s what we are doing to start off the New Year:
P.E.: In gym, we will focus on basketball. Students will learn how to dribble, pass (overhead, bounce, and chest), and the correct technique to shoot (B.E.E.F). In addition, all students will participate in various warm-up games to increase their aerobic capacity and muscular strength and endurance.
Music: There is a performance for K-3 students on February 1st, so students will be preparing for this event. The older students will focus on music standards. Please refer to the music blog for more information on what’s happening in the music world.
Art: One word- S.T.E.A.M! (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, and Math) All of the art projects the students will be working on will be STEAM themes. These pieces of art will be matted and framed for the Art Show that will be displayed on March 29th for STEAM Night. In addition, students will be giving their rocks a home in our Rock Garden located near the Blackwell bus port. Families are invited to take a look at our Rock Garden anytime they visit Blackwell and see all the neat creations our students have worked on in Art class.
The year is flying by…. it’s hard to believe November is here! Check out what we are doing in AMP:
The students are getting ready for Jump Rope for Heart (JRFH). Our JRFH Day is on December 1st. Each grade has been jumping rope in P.E. and students have been participating in the Bulldog Club Challenge to see if they can be one of the top 16 times. After JRFH, we will do hula hooping until 2018 starts.
Students are painting a rock to display on Blackwell’s campus. We are looking forward to seeing their creativity and helping Blackwell be even more beautiful!
Students have been busy learning songs for assemblies. The 5th grade students just performed a Veteran’s Program and it showcased their talent and hard work from music class. Please refer to the Music blog for other updates and information.
We have had a great 1st month of school in specials. Here is what we have been learning:
Rules and procedures in the gym. We have an acronym called P.E.A.C.E to remind students of the P.E. rules.
P– Protect the P.E. equipment
E– Enter and exit quietly
A– Attention: the first time!
E– Esteem; respect everyone
In addition to going over the rules and procedures, we have played many cooperation games to encourage good sportsmanship and teamwork. The older grades (3-5) are beginning the Fall Fitnessgram assessments.
In Art, we have been making our Art notebook. Each student has one. Also, Ms. Mckeehan has been teaching the students how to fill picture space with art ideas. Of course, Art rules and procedures have been established, too.
Refer to the music blog for all the information you’ll need to see what’s going on in the Music world!
Can you believe it? The 2016-2017 school year has almost finished. One day left! What a fast, yet fun, year we had in specials! 5th graders, enjoy middle school and make Blackwell P.R.O.U.D. Enjoy your summer!
