Club Warm-Up, and 3rd-5th graders are practicing curl-ups and push-ups in preparation for their Fitnessgram fitness testing. The minute club is really motivating students to jog and maintain a steady pace! They have been excited to earn these Minute Club certificates!
These are some of the activities the students participated in this week:
1) Ball Handling Drills (K-5th)
2) Dribbling Drills (K-5) - Poly Spot Dribbling (K-2) Dribbling Tag (5th)
3) Shooting (2nd-5th) - Shooting Game "Hot Shot" (3rd-5th)
4) Gold Coin Exercise Game (for St. Patrick's Day) - this is something I made up this week after buying a ton of plastic gold coins from the dollar store. It was fun and the kids got a lot of exercise!
This is a video of the game HOT SHOT - players had 1 minute to shoot baskets, trying to score as many points as possible. Four people were at each hoop.
Video of "Poly Spot Dribbling" idea from pecentral.com
|2nd grader playing "poly spot dribbling". Players walk or jog and dribble throughout the area and stop at poly spots to dribble on knees (there are numbers written on my poly spots with permanent marker).|
|These are the gold coins I purchased from the Dollar Store and used for the GOLD COIN EXERCISE GAME.|
|GOLD COIN EXERCISE game - Students earned a gold coin by doing 10 exercises on the poly spots. They placed their coins in the "girl bucket" or the "boy bucket" and continued earning more and more coins. I stopped the game every 2 mins to change exercises (picking berries, jumping jacks, push-ups, etc).|
