• More March Madness

    Posted by Gail Mattraw on 3/13/2020

    There may be no March Madness for the NCAA basketball tourney but the "Madness" continues in my PE classes.  This past week we did the Parachute, "Sling Shots"  and Badminton.  PreK through 2nd grades have been having a blast with the parachute.  They have made mountains, igloos, merry go rounds and much more.  Enjoy the pictures.

  • MARCH MADNESS

    Posted by Gail Mattraw on 3/5/2020

    In my PE classes, March Madness doesn't mean basketball.  It means new and different activities.  Our first new activity was "Air Hockey" using bean bags and frisbees.  Another activity is "Pool Sharks", the students played a large game of billiards with pool noodles, foam balls and hula hoops.  Check out the videos to see the activities.

    Keep checking back to see what other exciting activities we will be doing in March.



     

     

    Kindergarten is participating in the Dr. Suess Reading Week. So I read my favorite book to them, "The Gym Teacher from the Black Lagoon". The students really enjoyed the story.

  • FEBRUARY 2020 - SCOOTERS

    Posted by Gail Mattraw on 2/14/2020

     

    Ms. Mattraw's PE classes have been having a great time with scooter activities.  Some of the activities that they have done are scooter basketball, scooter hockey and scooter pin tag.  The students have been having a good time and they don't even realize what super conditioning they are getting. The scooters help strengthen their legs, core muscles and help with their cardio.

  • JANUARY 2020 - STEAM ACTIVITIES

    Posted by Gail Mattraw on 2/14/2020

    Ms. Mattraw has incorporated STEAM activities into her elementary PE classes.  PreK, K & 1 grades learned engineering skills by building castles with hula hoops.  The students learned about angles and how to make their castles sturdy.  This activity requires a lot of teamwork.  After the students practiced building the castles the class played a game of "Castleball".  The pictures shows Ms. Axtell's PreK class building and playing Castleball.

    Fire Prevention

    Fire Prevention

    On October 10, 2019, Ms. Mattraw's Kindergarten PE class did Fire Prevention activities.  In these pictures the students were trying to throw water balls (foam balls) in the burning house (trash can) to put out the fire.  This was a good activity for throwing and teamwork.
