I can’t believe we’ve already made it to the third quarter. This school year is flying by.
I just want to update you all on things we will be covering starting this week in health and gym.
2nd grade had their first health class last week. We will be covering a variety of different topics, some more serious than others. It is important for students to know that these topics are very serious and should be handled with care. During our first class, we discussed the difference between appropriate and inappropriate actions and words in different settings. I was very impressed by their thoughtfulness during this discussion and am excited to dive into the different topics with them!
Today, 5th grade took on the structure of the eye! We are learning about depth perception, refracting light and the different areas of the eyeball.
6-8th grade is learning about health problems and disease prevention. This is a great transition considering we just learned about different body systems. We will be able to better understand how some diseases affect the different body parts and why!
Gym classes are still studying creative movement.
Lower level grades are working with the scooters while upper level grades are finally finishing our free throw competition and working on creating their own 8 counts to develop their own line dance. This has been very interesting and a blast to watch them let loose and have fun!
Stay tuned for the results of our free throw competition at the end of the week!
