  • Units of Activity for the 2017-2018 school year

    Posted by Allison Smart on 9/19/2017

    Welcome to the 2017/18 school year! For those who are curious, here is a list of the units we will cover this school year. Only having each class  for an hour a week, I am limited on the number of lessons and units that can be covered in a year. Some units we do every school year, some units will be covered every other year. Up for this year:

    • Fitness Testing (in September and April for grades 3-5 only)
    • Speed Stacking
    • Pillo polo (our version of floor hockey)
    • Basketball
    • Jump Rope/Jump Rope for Heart
    • Step Aerobics
    • Heart Adventure Course
    • Net/Racket Activities
    • I Heart Encore week (something special in February!)
    • Plus, a variety of low organized games thorughout the year to focus on: teamwork, following directions, good sportsmanship, and having fun!

  • Fall Fun

    In November all studetns will be learning about bowling.  We will be turning the gym into "Indian Prairie Lanes" and will even be having a disco bowling day.  Some of the big ideas of this unit include: putting the correct fingers in the holes, keeping the ball on top of their hand, bending their knees, and stepping in opposition.
