SPECIAL AREA UPDATES

PE

Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten PE! This quarter we are on the MOVE.  Students have been introduced to a variety of locomotor skills including:  skipping, jumping, hopping, walking, sliding, galloping, and running! We have started to practice moving in general space to music and working with different pieces of equipment while moving. As we continue through the quarter, we will play a variety of games to focus on moving within boundaries and testing our spatial awareness. We will practice being cars moving on roads, airplanes flying through the gym, and even play one of our favorite games, scrambled eggs, to move around the gym to different commands. We are ready and excited for a new year in PE!
