What are we doing in Class?

Welcome Back!!! I hope you all had a WONDERFUL spring break! I know I'm well rested and ready to go!!

For the month of April we will start our fitness testing!! Spring has sprung and we are ready to get out and run the track!! Our fitness testing is based on the Presidential Fitness criteria, as well as, the FitnessGram criteria. The students will be tested in the 1/4 mile, sit and reach, trunk lift, rope climb, jump rope (forward & backward), sit ups, and the flex arm hang.

The students seem to enjoy this unit and I like the idea that it starts to help them "get in shape" for the upcoming summer months!!

 

Ways you can help your child improve muscular strength and endurance:

Encourage climbing, go to the park/playground, monkey bars, swinging, taking walks, jump roping, play tag, have a race, build an obstacle course and time how quickly your child can run through it, time your child running around the outside of your house, jumping on the trampoline, sign up for a 5k as a family, etc... ECOURAGE! ENCOURAGE! ECOURAGE!
