November / December 2016
With fall fitness testing under our belts, 3rd, 4th & 5th graders are starting the process of improving fitness in four areas:
Cardio Respiratory Endurance Muscle Strength Muscle Endurance Flexibility
By next spring we hope our hard work will have paid off and that our spring fitness scores will prove it!
In addition to conditioning, our classes are preparing for basketball, hockey and soccer. We’re playing a cool court game called Flickerball which requires an understanding of offensive and defensive flow, passing, catching, getting open, scoring and teamwork. After several exciting games, we feel confident about applying these skills to basketball.
Our younger students are learning calisthenics and working on heart rate. They count their pulse, find their heart rate and talk about heart rate levels that improve heart health and endurance. Relay races, GOLA, 44, Over/Under are some of the games they are playing.
Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders: To see your fitness scores and set goals:
