5, Follow the leader, active movements

6, Jump rope and hula hoops

7. Hot lava  ( moving from one place another without touching the ground)

Gym Class for 5/11 - 5/15

Hello parents and kids

Hope all of you had a good week and a Happy Mother's Day. 

Here are your lessons for this week 

Let's get outside some more and take a nature walk. Let's see how many animals and birds you can see. Are the leaves on the trees yet and can you find any flowers?  Can you see or hear anything else that was interesting on the walk?

Another thing you can work on is throwing and catching.  This is the time of year we get outside, talk about, and play baseball and softball.  You need to work on hand and eye coordination. So go out and play catch.

Have a great fun active week and of course stay healthy!

Gym class for May 4th - 8th

Hello Parents and Students!  

Yes, it was a great weekend for doing anything outside, but I see this week we are going back to cooler weather. So here is a fitness game with playing cards. 

The kids can use all 52 playing cards at once and have a long fitness activity so they only have to do it once or twice this week. The other option is to take or pick 10 cards a day for a warm-up before their schoolwork or if they get antsy they can get up and do the fitness activity in between subjects.  Have fun and work hard. If you don't remember how to do an exercise pick a different one.

 Have a great week and keep moving. Thanks again for all the feedback. 
Miss all you, 
Miss LeClair

Gym Class for the week of April 27th - May 1st

Hello Kids and Parents

Thank you for all the comments on the hopscotch and balloon activities. They were very cool and I'm glad everyone enjoyed them. 

Here is something fun to do, too. Rain is in the air for this week, so let's try an indoor obstacle course (parents approval) 
       Here are some things you can put in your course:

          1.  Throwing at a target
          2. Going through a tunnel or something
          3. use a balloon for an activity 

          4. put crunches and push-ups in  

          5. use locomotive skills and you can zig-zag though cones or chairs etc,

          6. anything else you can think of and be creative  

Have fun and enjoy the obstacle course.

If its nice outside on Thursday you could do an outside course and try different things 

Thanks again and stay active and healthy Miss LeClair

Gym Class for April 20 - 24th

Hello kids and parents

 Thanks for all the comments and all the fun activities you all are doing. Keep up the great work. 

Here are some other fun activities you can try this week.

Hopscotch is an international game that works on jumping, coordination and fun.  Hope everyone has some chalk around the house. 
Now you can have some fun making your own hopscotch and playing. 

1. Remember to number your squares.
2. Find a small rock or stick to mark the square you are missing as you are jumping through your hopscotch.
3.Share your hopscotch with your parents and siblings. 
4.Draw different ones and enjoy.

Another fun activity is working with balloons  (if no one is allergic to them). 
The whole family can get involved and have a blast. 
You can have some relay races with the balloons by batting them and keeping them in the air as you move from one place to another. Try batting the balloon with one hand. Next you can put the balloon between your legs and walking and many other ways to move with the balloon.

The last balloon activities to have a family game of keep the balloon moving up in the air.  My family played this game sometimes in the living room and had a great time with a lot of laughs.

Enjoy the activities and be healthy 
Miss LeClair

Let me know how the hopscotch and balloon activties go..

Gym class for the week of April 14-April 18th

Hello Kids and Parents

Lets try something fun and different from regular gym class. 

One day lets go for a walk or jog with the family and look for signs of spring. Is there anything else that is different with springtime?  

Try to walk for about 30 minutes to an hour.  Have fun and enjoy the outside.

On another day, try to have a family fun day outside by getting the Frisbee out and playing catch, get a ball out to play catch or soccer, or get the jump rope and start jumping.

Enjoy the family time and have fun
