Dance City!!

This week and next we will work on some groovy dance moves!  Younger kids will work on the hokey pokey, tooth-ta and bunny hop while older kids will do some cool line dances like the cha-cha slide and cupid shuffle.  Next week we will build on these songs and work with ribbons and do a little square dancing with the older kids (3,4,5th grade).

Stack Em Up!!

This week the kids had a great time working with the "Speed Stacks" cups.  Kids were expected to work on their 3-3-3, 3-6-3, 6-6, and cycle times on the floor, and then even had a chance to use the "official" timer they use at tournaments!!

This week kids are working as a team to manipulate the BIG parachute in PE class.  We are switching positions, making mushrooms, launching balls (some even hit the ceiling and got stuck!!), and playing "lifeguard" if time allows.
