SPECIAL AREA UPDATES

Pre-K students have been busy in PE! Students have been participating in a variety of activities that allow them to manipulate an object by sliding, tossing, bouncing, or catching. They have used foam balls, balloons, yarn balls and worked with our large parachute. In addition to working with equipment, they continue to work on spatial awareness and boundaries from the previous unit as they move in the gym with these new pieces of equipment. Students are now beginning to work with a partner to continue to manipulate objects and focus more on tossing and catching.
