Many children do not come prepared, wearing a light sweatshirt or no sweater at all. Some parents do not understand how the weather affects our Physical Education class, so I'm preparing a newsletter to go home next week. They are fidgety, chatty, and in general over excited. It is difficult to explain the activity because they are not really listening. This is especially so in the 5th grade students, for whom talking is the focus of their daily lives. Since they are not allowed to talk much in the classrooms, and they come to PE during the last period of the day..... They think it is finally THE time to talk.
In all, in spite of the conditions, we had good classes this week. I worked also on the "Y-Ties" fundraiser for the first time and did not do bad at all! Next week I'll wrap up and will order more ties if I need to.
This week we worked on different stations. I included the StackSpots (like polyspots but they include fitness activities and speed stacking activities). The kids loved them and they had the chance to work on a variety of fitness activities and review their speed stacking abilities. The wind was not very cooperative, but in general it all went great!
Til the next one.
