Today is our double P.E./Movement Day since we had our online P.E./Movement Class. It looked like everybody was having a good time working with Mr. Dale, Mr. Myk, Miss Yuri and the other teachers. Keep up the good work!!
3 Year Olds (in Ms. Barbara and Mrs. Almoula’s group)
The three-year olds work hard on following directions and refining their coordination. Here is a simple song/dance you can do!
Everybody knows and loves the dance Hokey Pokey, but did you know that there is an Emotions Hokey Pokey? Since you had a good workout this morning, let’s relax a bit with this song/dance:
4 Year Olds (in Miss Yuri and Ms. Hoshi’s group)
Today we will be doing some exercise for 5 minutes! 🙂
Please try 40 seconds of Marching On The Spot, Star Jumps, Low Sprint Shuffle, Squats and Climb The Rope while taking 20 seconds of rest time in between these exercises. Some of these moves are familiar to you, but some are new!
Make sure you have your water bottle near you so you can drink water when you need it.You will feel your heart beating very fast during this activity. Remember to breathe while you are exercising!
If 40 seconds feels too long, please adjust it to 20 seconds and 10 seconds of rest.
Please check this video to see how the exercise works!
5 Year Olds ~ Pre-First Graders (in Mr. Dale and Mr. Myk’s group)
Hi everyone! Today, I have 2 more sock ball activities for students (and parents) to play with!
The first one is a practice on catching from different angles. Learning how to catch things coming from different directions helps develop good reaction time and coordination too. Here is a video I made showing catching from different angles.
Don’t forget the catching tips we learned from before:
-catching hands ready
-eyes open, always looking at the ball
-don’t look away or close your eyes
For our second activity, we have a game of Knock the Shoe!
We are going to make targets from shoes and try to hit them with our sock balls. Here Is a video I made showing how to play the game. You can try throwing from different distances or use different sized targets or even do a locomotor movement before throwing! That’s going to be a fun challenge!
Video of Second Activity-Knock the Shoe!
Remember our steps for throwing:
-look at the target
-step with the opposite foot
When playing, we should always be aware of where we are and where we are going to throw our sock balls so that we do not cause accidents or hurt or damage anything. Have fun and stay safe!
We hope you enjoyed your P.E./Movement class for today. Continue eating well, washing your hands properly and EXERCISE!
