How are you all doing with your 30days Challenge? 

This is the last set of exercises you will do for your 30 days challenge!


Today you will have a choice of jogging with me at the park or do some exercises on the spinning wheel!

If you feel like jogging, you could jog with me at the park.
This is the park where I usually jog when I feel like I need to exercise more 🙂 You could jog on the spot as you explore the park through this video and see how far you could jog with me!
If you start to feel dizzy or tired, make sure to stop!

 

Explore and jog with Ms.Yuri

 

OR

You can spin this exercise wheel four times a day and do four exercises!

 


Exercise using the spinning wheel

 

Please make sure you have your water ready when you exercise!

Enjoy!

Hello Everybody!

 

Today is the 6th day of Flashy Feet Fridays. How are your feet and legs doing? Are they getting faster and stronger? Can you feel it? 

For today’s practice, I will put in different counts and times for each exercise and we won’t be using any obstacles to jump over today too. It might be hard at first but I know you have gotten stronger with all our training. Afterwards, we will finish up with a challenging jump! Are you ready for it? Lets Go!!

 

20 Star jumps 

20 seconds Fast feet

20 bunny jumps in place

 

30 seconds rest

 

20 high Knees in place (10 per leg)

16 skater jumps

20 seconds fast feet figure 8

 

1 minute rest

 

5 Tuck jumps

5 Pike jumps (you can rest in between each jump)

 

Some tips for the pike jump: 

-remember the steps jump-kick-touch your toes

-swing your arms to jump up high

-Take a quick rest if your legs are getting tired

 

Remember to always be safe when practicing our moves. You can do them with music or have someone join you for your exercise. And always remember to have fun!

 

Thanks for exercising today!!  The days are getting warmer.  Remember to have a drink of water in-between and after your exercises to stay safe and healthy.  Also, wash your hands, eat healthy and exercise every day!   See you next week!!

5 Year Olds ~ Pre-First Graders (in Mr. Dale and Mr. Myk’s group)

Hello everyone!

 

Today is day five of Flashy feet Fridays! 

 

Before we get started, I wanted to know how last week’s jumping practice went. Was it too hard or quite easy? Did you feel your legs get stronger with each jump you practiced? I hope everyone enjoyed their jumping time.

 

For today’s Flashy Feet practice, we will be focusing on moving sideways. It might be hard to balance at first because we are used to only moving forwards or backwards. Moving sideways can start out slowly and get stronger and faster as we improve with our practice. You can try out each movement as many times as you want until you get the hang of moving sideways with good balance.

 

Here is our sideways list:

 

Fast feet 8 shape

Sideways high knees

In and out step

Sideways jump

Skater Jumps

Sideways hop

 

Have fun practicing your sideways movement! Remember to practice safely and always be careful!

 

 

We hope you enjoyed your P.E./Movement class for today.  Continue eating well, washing your hands properly and EXERCISE!

Friday, May 22nd ~ Ms. Sallie’s Storytime

Hello everybody,

 

Do you have nights when you cannot sleep?  What do you do? Do you imagine things or do you count something?  Many people count sheep.  Come and listen to a story called Counting Sheep by Dr. Julie Glass, illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka.  Are you ready, don’t fall asleep!!

Counting Sheep by Julie Glass | Scholastic              Counting Sheep – Click here to view.

 

Most people count sheep when they cannot sleep (one sheep, two sheep, three sheep, and so on…)

* What did this man count and how many?

* What else do you want to count?

* Can you practice counting things by twos? (2, 4, 6, 8, 10)

* When you count normally by ones, how far can you count to?

Next time you can’t sleep, try counting sheep or something else and tell us in your comments whether it worked or not!

 

Here are some nice “Counting Sheep” videos you can watch.

Here’s a lot of ewes.  Ewes are girl sheep!

 

Here is a song about counting sheep… Can you help count?

 

In the recording, we talked about rhyming words…..After a good night’s sleep, you can exercise to this fun song called Exercise, Rhyme and Freeze!

 

And lastly, here is an activity that you can do and make:

 

If you don’t have cotton balls, you can crumple up some tissue paper to make fluffy balls.  Enjoy!!

 

Have a happy day today!

Hello everyone!

Did you enjoy the Hand Clap Video we made for you!?
Mr.Dale, Mr.Myk and Ms.Yuri enjoyed dancing with you all! 

This dance might have been challenging for you but no worries at all. You don’t have to do the same exact move because the idea of this activity is to have fun and dance freely to the music! 

Here is the video we showed during our zoom session.

Hi everybody!

 

Mr Dale and I have been missing all of you and our Montessori Movement classes in the Lower Rec Hall. 

Because of that, I decided to make my own version of the Lower Rec Hall!

 

Click here to go to the Lower Rec Hall!

 

I have hidden 8 activities in different items scattered around the room. Can you find and do all of them? It would be super cool if you can do all of the activities in one day but you can also repeat or do other activities on different days! 

 

Remember to always play safely and carefully. Have fun!!

 

Mr Myk

We are sorry for the technical problems we had this morning during our zoom class time.  New things happen but we model how we would like our children to be–problem solvers, risk takers and life-long learners.  We also like to show them that exercising is important and it is fun!!
