This week we have added learning to hula hoop at one of our PE centers!
Today our after schoolers did a small act of kindness for all of the teachers at Carolina Prep. Each student picked a teachers name out of a hat and made a card for that teacher. I didn’t tell them what to write I just told them to think of something kind that could brighten someone’s day! Many of the cards listed “you are awesome”, “you are pretty”, and “thank you for being a great teacher” and each student drew something on the card for that teacher. The older kids were “in charge” of this project. They helped pass out all materials, orchestrated the drawing of names, and helped each of the younger students spell out what they were trying to say. After our cards were completed we went and hand delivered our cards to all of the teachers just to brighten their day and do a random act of kindness ☀️
Zayn is getting the royal treatment on his birthday complete with escorts, body guards, and deciding what to play in PE!
We hope all of you have a great day ❤️
Every Friday in PE is known as free day Friday! I bring out various balls and toys and the students play all different sorts of games from tag to fort making to football. This gives me time to also see which sports students are interested in so I can incorporate them in to next weeks lesson plans!
Our last day of team building has consisted of a big obstacle course! Students have been running, jumping, and crawling trying to help their team win! We have also learned how to cheer your team on and how encouragement makes a big difference!
We are building on teamwork today by working on our listening and trust skills. Students had to make it around and over multiple obstacles by listening to their partner!
We are going to spend our week by playing games that make us work together as a team to achieve a goal!
