Nutrition and PE CARES

We are in the middle of our Nutrition month and discussing the 5 food groups and what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy!  We are also bringing in lots of food to help with PE CARES (collecting and regiving essential supplies).  K classes continue to work on underhand throw.  Here are a few pictures!

Turkey Trot 2016

Tuesday, October 25 is the big day!!!!  If you registered your child for the race, they should have brought their race bag and shirt home yesterday 🙂  Please make sure on the day of the race, the bib number is pinned to the outside of whatever they are wearing.  We need to be able to see the bib color as they finish.  Thanks for all your help with this!

Please dress for the weather and we will see you at the race!!!!

Welcome Back!!!

We can not wait to see all of you again in PE for the upcoming school year!!!  Don’t forget to bring your PE shoes on the very first day of school so you can keep them in your locker and be prepared to come to the gym.  Remember, they do not have to be new…just clean and the right size!!  See you soon!   Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering

4th and 5th grade Field Day

Just a reminder that the 4th and 5th gr. field day is coming up on June 7 with a rain date of June 8.  If your child ordered a field day t-shirt, it will be coming home on Monday June 6!

Please have your child dress for the weather (with sunscreen) and if they take their own water bottle, they are responsible for it.

Fractions in PE?

Our gym is perfect for teaching fractions!!!  Our white line divides our gym into thirds and many lines help us with quarters and halves.  We decided to make our middle circle into a giant pizza to teach many more fractions.  There is one activity we do that is called pizza party.  If a student gets tagged, they have to go sit in one of the giant slices of pizza.  Mrs. VanKoevering and I then ask the students,  “what fraction of our pizza is filled?”.
