My 3rd-5th grade classes will continue play team hand ball during their first class of the week. For their second class of the week they will learn and practice the basketball set shot in a variety of ways. My Kindergarten-3rd grade classes will continue practicing basketball skills during their class/classes this week. I will also have them practice a few locomotor skills (gallop, skip, and slide) when they are playing tagging games.
This week, I will continue with my basketball unit. The 3rd-5th grade classes will lean and practice passing in a variety of ways during their first class of the week. To finish the first class of the week, they will play a ten passes game that will be very similar to a basketball game without shooting. During the second class of the week, they will play team hand ball. This is an Olympic sport that uses a combination of basketball and soccer skills. The kindergarten-2nd grade classes will continue my basketball unit this week and will focus on learning and practicing shooing in a variety of ways that will be developmentally appropriate for their ability and grade level.
This week, I will be focusing on basketball skills with all of my classes. The main skills I will focus on will be the hand dribble and passing. I will have the students learn and practice these skills in ways that will be developmentally appropriate for their grade and skill level.
My 4th and 5th grade classes will also be taking my basketball unit pre-assessment on google classroom this week. Once they take the pre-assessment, I will begin reviewing for the post-assessment throughout the unit.
This week, I will finish up my football unit with my 3rd-5th grade classes. To finish the unit, all of the students will get to wear a flag football belt and play a flag tag game. They will also practice a football drill that will have the quarterback, center, receiver, and defensive back positions. During the drill, the students will get to pull a flag during the drill to try to stop the receiver from scoring a touchdown. The Kindergarten-2nd grade classes will start my basketball unit this week. The main skill they will all focus on will be the hand dribble. I will have each class practice the skill in ways that will be developmentally appropriate for their grade and skill level.
This week, I will continue my hula hoop unit with my kindergarten-2nd grade classes. They will all be practicing my hula hoop relay races during each of their classes this week. The 3rd-5th grade classes will start my football unit this week. This unit will last for 4-5 classes. The main skills I will focus on during the unit will be the throwing and catching. I will also teach them some of the basics of football throughout the unit.
My kindergarten-2nd grade classes will all start or continue to work on hula hoop skills this week. I have a variety of hula hoop skills that I will have my students practice that will be developmentally appropriate for their age/grade level. My 3rd-5th grade classes will finish up their final soccer games during their first class this week. During their second class, they will play one of my between unit games. The 4th-5th grade classes will also complete a soccer unit review in their journals, before they start the game.
This week, I will continue to have my 3rd-5th grade classes play sideline soccer games during both of their classes. The Kindergarten classes, will play tagging games during their first class of the week and then they will start my hula hoop unit during the second class of the week. The 1st and 2nd grade classes will continue to finish up their second 1/2 mile run outside and then they will come inside and play a soccer bowling game. If they are done with the second run, I will have them warm-up and then finish up my soccer unit with a soccer bowling game.
