November is a wonderful month... Fall seems to REALLY be here and we have an entire week to spend with our families!!! We are well into our Catching and Throwing Unit, which can be a real challange to many of our little ones. Lots of practice with a lot of different tossables like fluff balls, bean bags, small rubber balls, medium size rubber balls and even scarves! Later on in the unit, your student will experience batting a ball off of a "T". There will be assessments throughout this unit, so it would be an advantage if your student had various sizes of balls or even something small and soft to try out some of the challenges they have experienced in their PE class. We always expect the very best effort along with a willingness to try new and difficult things as we go through the year. Toward the end of the month, we will begin our Jumping unit and you will see more details about that unit next month.
Please know that the main thing that we expect of all of our students, during any unit, is that they give us their BEST EFFORT every day and show us their BEST SPORTSMANSHIP!!!
Please consider "Go Noodle" as part of your family activity time. It is an internet based program with numerous guided physical activities for you and your family to do together! Try it, your child has experienced "Go Noodle" in their Physical Education classes and simply love it. Here is the link that will take you to the sign up page. It is a great VERY ACTIVE, VERY FUN, INDOOR ACTIVITY!!!
Just a little reminder that students are required to wear proper fitting sneakers (athletic shoes) every day to school, since they have PE every day. It would be very helpful to have your child wear shoes that do not have laces if they do not know how to tie a good, tight bow. In the mean time please, please, please have your child practice, with your guidance, the art of shoe tying. It is something they will need to practice often in order for them to become proficient. Should you choose to use it, there is a PDF file on shoe lace tying that can be used as a resource in teaching your child to tie a bow.
Thanks so much for coming to my website. I appreciate the time that I have been able to spend with your child!
MAKE TIME TO GET PHYSICAL AT HOME!!!
