We had a blast last week jumping rope and finishing the week with our "Grand Finale" - Jump Rope for Heart 2013. The event was so much fun and we appreciate all of the energy and excitement all of our students (elementary and high school) brought in to the gym!!! Thanks to all of the students that brought in an envelope with contributions for the American Heart Association.
This week we are jumping quickly into volleyball, beachball and balloon striking activites and skills. The 2nd to 5th graders will work in stations in small groups to perfect their volleyballs skills for "bumping", "setting", and "serving". They will also play some low net or line volleyball games in groups of 4. We might even throw in the climbing wall as a bonus station to keep us on our toes (and hands of course). The younger age students will practice striking ballooons and beachballs up in the air using various body parts and will play games of "keep it up".
SERVE, SET, BUMP......Yah!
