After concluding our mini golf unit with the pros from Miracle Hills golf course, we added in the fun of THE PARACHUTE! It never fails!! Each and every year, we review the turtle, ostrich, jellyfish, mushroom and all the games that have us moving vigorously with the ‘chute”. A new favorite has become “the cat and mouse” and “cops and robbers”. I prefer “cat and mouse” because it seems less violent! (smile!) Hopefully near the end of the year (which is creeping up quickly) we will get the parachute outside and try launching some pigs in the air! It is a fabulous day when the pigs fly!!
The Olympic Games that the students took part in were LOTS OF FUN! Pretty sure the best days were when they rode the bobsleds! Scooters and mats placed together is always a great way to promote team work!
We have finished up the quarter with the floor hockey unit. One of the lead up games was “ground attack” which encompasses the hockey skill of shooting the puck, not into a goal, but, to a standing snowman. The “goal” is to be the first team to knockdown all your opponent’s snowmen. Again, this requires offense and defense strategies and promotes great shooting practice.
So…here we are…THE 4TH QUARTER! Hopefully, we will get to be outside before May rolls around! Lacrosse is much better outside than inside!!
