As we continued with our soccer skills this week inside wee were able to increase our ball skills to music doing the Mexican Hat Dance with the soccer ball. Video to come soon, We played partner pin down, recess kicking,and dribbling,ghost busters, six squad soccer and practiced scoring goals playing 3 on 3. This week we also had our second choice day of the year with a football target toss for tickets, scooter, long ropes, hula hoops and fling it nets with rubber animals.
Continuing with our soccer unit, this week students worked more on passing and avoiding the defender. We played bull in the middle, soccer steal the bacon, box weaving and how many points can you score. Students lead this weeks exercise drawing for past exercises thus far this year. One second grade class was selected to preform for the video below...ENJOY!
Have a great break and don't forget to check out the link to the left for some great book suggestions while you are away from school.
Learning new stretches!
Welcome back! This week because
we are inside we will be learning some
new stretches for our warm-up time by
playing, Vegas Fitness, Relay Warm-up,
Nutrition Tag and Sneaker Slap Tag.
Our main games for this week are:
Throw to the Wall, Hustle Your Bustle,
Partner Chance and Run Around. The
last three games will involve using our
soccer skills we have been working on
before our break.
Due to the wild Oregon weather we combined indoors with Mrs. Peerson's class for the game Ball to the Wall. I was very proud of all my students who stepped up to work with younger students and showed exceptional behavior with such a large class size. My students were leaders and role models for good listening, respect, kindness and following directions. YEAH!
