Only 64 days until Spring!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Spring is March 20th!  Only 64 more days of winter!  I am ready for warmer weather.  I am also ready for more consistent sunshine!  I always feel more energetic when it’s sunny outside.  I know getting exercise during the winter is hard, but there are many things you can do to add movement to your day.  If you have stairs in your house, you can walk up and down them 10 times, you can make exercise challenges with your brothers or sisters or parents, you can exercise to wii tennis, you can play catch with a sock ball or volleyball with a balloon.  Or……… can bundle up and go outside and play in the snow or walk around the block.  Use your imagination!!!!  Moving your body during the winter gives you more energy and it stimulates your brain.

Sooooooooooooooooo…………………GET MOVING!!!

Hello, students and welcome back to Henry Ford Elementary School!!  It was a wonderful…and quick summer!!!  I hope you had fun and kept physically active!  I ran a lot-I even ran around Mackinac Island-that’s 8 miles! I ran a couple of races, traveled Up North and read a lot of books! I love to read!!!  I also had a garden and I’m still bringing tomatoes in my lunch!

We are off to a good start this year.  I see lots of familiar faces and also, lots of new faces!  Each grade has their own curriculum but one thing is common with all grades this 1st marking period is the instep kick.

Lower grades will work on locomotor skills, too: Kindergarten and 1st grade will be learning how to and get better at hopping and 2nd grade will be working on the gallop.  Third grade will be reviewing all locomotor skills.  4th and 5th grades will be working on their fitness.  4th grade will be assessed on the 13 min. continuous run (without walking) and the 5th grade will be assessed on the 15 min.continuous run (without walking).  All grades will be graded on sportsmanship.

In addition to the skills being learned in P.E. (Physical Education) Class, there will be other opportunities in which the 4th and 5th graders can participate.  They will receive a letter to take home if they are interested.

The first is Running Club.  This is a club that meets at 7:50 in the morning, one day a week, beginning at the end of September.  We meet throughout the year and then run in a race called the Martian Marathon.  This is a COMMITMENT!  Runner must come every week or they will be dropped from the club.  The other opportunity to Run will be the Robert Cipriano Run in October.  There is a small fee of $3, but it is a fun run and parents will be able to watch their child participate.

I’m looking forward to a great year!!!!
