Welcome to my new classroom website!
I will be spending some time getting everything together but would appreciate any suggestions along the way.
There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, to connect with parents, but also a learning tool and resource for the students.
The year is starting out great!
Your children are starting their physical fitness evaluations next week. These are done through a program titled FitnessGram. The evaluations are used to assess your child's level of fitness. Their goal is to reach the Healthy Fitness Zone for their age group in each of the assessments. The assessments we use are Curl Ups (muscular endurance), Push Up (muscular strength), Sit and Reach (Flexibility), PACER and One Mile Run/Walk (cardiovascular endurance).
Unit #2 will be a short Frisbee games unit. We will play Kan Jam. This activity will help the students focus on tossing at a target while working with a partner to score points.
The students will then move on to Unit #3. For 7th grade we will be playing Speedball. 6th grade is playing Ultimate Ball.
