Kindergarten bowls for healthy snacks!

This game works on rolling skills which we practiced last week during stations. They work in pairs- one partner bowls, if they knock down the pin, their partner runs to get a healthy snacks bean bag!

Bat Ball

This game is geared toward working on batting skills as well as pitching and catching. Batter is up until they get a hit. Once they do, they run and high-five the pitcher and back to the back catcher. They do this until the outfielder gets the ball back to the pitchers mound. We counted our runs in English then in Spanish.

Blind folded relays.

One member of one of our squads was blind folded during our relays this morning. Opened a discussion on helping others in need and adaptations.

Last post was a re-post from international games month.

Gorodki!

The aim of this game is to knock out the 'skittles' arranged in various patterns by throwing a bat at them. We obviously won't be throwing bats! We are using beanbags to knock them down! This game is similar to bowling.





Sneakers!!!!

Finally the snow is all gone! Students do not need to bring extra sneakers for PE! Happy Spring!!
