Bowling

K-5th grade started their bowling unit.  3rd-5th gr. learned how to take a 3 step approach and all students learned their cue words (push, swing, bowl, hello).   This week the students will learn how to keep score.  We are SO thankful to the Hudsonville Bowling Alley for the use of their lanes and bowling equipment.  All students will earn 3 free games at the alley when we complete the unit!!!  Here are a few pics 🙂  

JRFH IS COMPLETE!

Once again our GT families have risen to the occasion.  You have all surprised us with your kind hearts and donations.   The GT fam has raised $9,165.51 for the American Heart Association this year.   All students enjoyed a day of jumping rope and learning how to use Chinese jump ropes, thanks to our amazing student teacher Ms. VanNoord.   Check out the video of the kids “jumping the ring”, one of their FAVORITE  JRFH activities.  Thanks again to Ms. VanNoord for her twirling abilities!!!!

Jump Rope For Heart!

Jump Rope For Heart information will be coming home over the next week, as we see our classes.  We had our best year ever last year with a total of $9,273.84 raised.  We were blown away with how much our GT students raised.   We are excited to see what our students can do this year.

All the funds raised go to the American Heart Association to help research heart disease.  The heart is our strongest muscle in our body.  Some people struggle with heart disease.  This disease effects young and old and some of our own GT students and families.  Thank you for helping us with this important cause.

The Jump date for our students will be Feb. 28-March 5.   Students will be dedicating their P.E. time to jumping when they come to class during Feb. 28-March 5.   All pledge envelopes and on-line donations are due on February 28.

Please take the time to read over the information your students come home with and we encourage you to try the on-line process this year!   There is an informational sheet that will walk you right through how to do it!   Join Miss VanNoord our student teacher and jump your way to good health!

 

 

Bones!

Well it has been awhile since we posted about bones.  We now have a total of 11 bones that we are trying hard to remember.   We just recently learned about the femur and patella.

Our list includes the following:

cranium, mandible, clavicle, sternum, ribs, humerus, radius, ulna, pelvis, femur and patella.

See if your kiddos can show you where they are 🙂
