In November we continued to work with long and individual jump ropes. Our rhythmic activities will include “Grandmother’s Farm” and our favorite cat and mouse game. The children are working hard and having fun in movement.
In November we began practicing for the President’s physical fitness tests. The tests includes the following components: sit ups for abdominal strength, sit and reach for flexibility, shuttle run for agility, pull ups/ pushups for upper body strength,and the mile run for endurance. We play games and do activities to help prepare for these tests in the spring.
As we finish football, weather traditionally pushes us indoors. This year it may still be warm, but it is just too wet to be outside. We use this to our advantage by beginning volleyball. It involves use of communication between teammates, and the long volleys bring cardio into account. The students will need to have good game strategy as well.
