Basketball Passing, Shooting and Dribbling
This week we worked on basketball dribbling, passing and shooting. I had so much fun playing sideline basketball with 5th graders today! It's very exciting when we finally put all the skills together to play an organized game.
We also began an exciting "Minute Running Club" program as our warm-up activity. This involves giving students timed jogging tests and rewarding those who are able to jog without stopping to walk. Rewards include signing their name on the poster in the gym, and taking home a mini-certificate of completion.
Here is a list of activities we did the past two weeks:
Minute Running Clubs
Sit-Up and Push-Up Practice Tests
Dribbling with Dinosaurs (game from pecentral.org)
Basketball Passing Relay
Space Invaders (Passing game from pecentral.org)
Hot Shot Shooting Game
Sideline Basketball (5th grade only)
Video of 3rd graders playing "Dribbling with Dinosaurs". The dinosaurs have on the yellow shirts. They have to stay in their "dinosaur cave" and try to tag players who come into the cave. Other players pretend to be paleontologists who have to dribble through the cave to get a fossil(bean bag). If a player is tagged, they dribble on their knees on a poly spot (spots have numbers on them which determines how many times they have to dribble on their knees).
