This week, I will plan to play my final sideline basketball games with my 3rd-5th grade classes. The 3rd graders will play during both of their classes and the 4th/5th graders will only play it during one of their classes. During the other class, my 4th and 5th grade classes will retake their jump rope assessment. Once they are finished with the assessment I will have them play a throwing game. The K-2nd grade classes will spend time learning and practicing their new locomotor skill for the 3rd marking period, which is sliding. This skill is similar to the gallop, however, the students are moving sideways. I will have them practice the skill during a variety of activities and tagging games.
