Dear St. Peter Families,
January began with Kindergarten through 2nd graders working with Scooters. They played Scooter Tag, and Bring Home the Bacon.
3rd graders played Scooter Hockey.
4th through 8th grades enjoyed Floor Hockey.
We then moved on to Long Rope Jumping. Kindergarten practiced jumping a pendulum swing and actually jumping a turned rope.
Grades 1-6 learned how to run in and jump, and run out. They played School and I Like Coffee. Grades 3-6 also practiced jump rope tricks with a partner.
7-8 graders played volleyball to refine their skills for the Teacher Volleyball Game.
Remember your child's grade is based on participation and conduct. If for any reason he/she cannot participate please communicate with me so he/she can be excused.
Also, please send in your box tops. We will be making another submission February 28th.
Stay warm and healthy!
Hello St. Peter Families,
Happy New Year!
Basketball was being played in P.E. for the entire month of December.
Grades K-2 learned a couple of ball handling drills. They practiced their dribbling skills by playing games like "Bring Home the Bacon", "Dribble Tag", "Dribble Knockout" (no one is out) and "Pac-Man Dribbling". They practiced their passing skills, and learned and practiced the proper way to shoot a basketball.
Grades K-5 also learned several ball handling drills. They played dribbling games like "Dribble Tag", "Chicken Dribble", "Dribble Knockout" and "Basketball Pirates". They played shooting games like "21", the "Mikan Drill", "Knockout", and "Full court layups". They also practiced full court passing and learned and practiced the proper way to shoot a basketball.
Grades 6-8 practiced several ball handling drills. They also played games like "Dribble Knockout", the "Mikan Drill", "21", and "Knockout". They learned and practiced the proper way to shoot a basketball. Near the end of the unit, they divided up into teams and put their skills into practice in several games of 3 on 3, 4 on 4, and 5 on 5.
Please continue to clip box tops from participating sponsors. Money from box tops helps replace broken and worn out P.E. equipment. We will submit another box tops request on March 1st. The class sending in the most box tops will earn a water balloon launch in May!
Your child's P.E. grade is based on participation and conduct. Remember, if your child is unable to participate in any P.E. activities, please communicate with me so your child can be excused.
Blessings for a healthy and prosperous new year,
