Off to a Great Start!We are halfway through September and our kids are moving and grooving!Physical education is all about learning how to move, how to take care of our bodies, and how to find those activities to love for a lifetime! In PE, we practice skills individually, with a partner, and even through team challenges. Responsibility is a big part of physical education: Personal responsibility - taking care of ourselves and doing the right things on our own - and social responsibility - respecting and helping others.This month we have been working on competition and cooperation in physical education! We all like to win, and that's a good thing! When we lose, it gives us a chance to reflect on our efforts, our skills, and our strategies. By adjusting one or more of those components, we just may win the next contest! Sometimes, it takes a team effort to succeed. As your kids know, "Team work makes the dream work!" We all have our part to contribute, and we can even "spark" our teammates to greatness with encouragement and support! Of course, whether we win or lose, we know how to be a good sport.This month we also began some of our extra activities! Have your kids talked to you about Mileage Club or Healthy Futures? Mileage Club is a running/walking program that takes place during recess and Healthy Futures is the best homework ever for our 1st and 2nd grade students! (Don't worry - our kindergarten friends will get to participate in Healthy Futures next semester!)
