This Friday my 3rd-5th grade students demonstrated their soccer skills by participating in these SOCCER COURSES. 5th graders also practiced throw-ins, passing, and trapping with a partner. This was my first time seeing most of the students play soccer, and the courses were an easy way to keep them all active while I observed what level they are at. I'm hoping to teach them some soccer lead-up games next week.
My K-2nd grade classes did their MOVE and STRETCH warm-up, learned a stretching song called "TUCK, PIKE STRADDLE", and did some BEAN BAG activities. I love to use this "Dinonastics" CD for K-2nd grade. One of my classes even had time to play BEAN BAG TAG. 2nd graders learned about ANIMAL WALKS and played ANIMAL WALK TAG. This was a new game I came up with yesterday and worked out well!
