The olympics came to St. Marys gym this week where everyone was a winner. We had the cnahce to compete for the chance to take the gold, and leave thoes other countries behind!! We played great games this week that involved us going for the gold! we also had the chance to observe two specific kids in the class to figure out what kinds of motor movements were being preformed, and if they were meeting the required standard for each group. next week we get to go to the lost world and visit back in time with the dinosaurs!

Playing this game can be fun for many, but as teachers do we everthing about the kids who dont want to play, or have a fear of thoes flying balls. in highschool and gradeschool this is all we would play and i loved it. but today were finding out that were leaving kids out, children are not getting enought physical activity, and sitting out untill the next game starts. to get the is game off the DO NOT PLAY list, we need tro creat a safe and more physical active game. if i were to put this game in my lesson play i would keep everyone in the game longer, to keep them moving around. to either when they get out go to the other team, or have them play from the side lines, or play by hitting a ball off a cone for points. this would keep them moving and getting their total minutes of physical activity for the day!!!
