The first week of Physical Education is over! Expectations have been reviewed, procedures have been set, and we are ready to have a great school year. We will be using the parachute throughout the rest of the month to build teamwork and community within the classes. We will be using the parachute for a wide variety of games and activities.
In week two, 4th and 5th graders will be receiving their first activity log homework assignment of the year. These will be handed out every week, and collected the following week. The activity logs are designed to promote healthy activity levels outside of school, as well as to provide some math and writing practice. Students are required to turn them in, otherwise their PE grade will suffer.
Also starting in the 2nd week is Class Dojo. This is a classroom management system where students earn points for showing positive behaviors, and can lose points for any negative behaviors. I will be sending students home with an invitation for you to set up a parental account. This will let you receive weekly updates on how your child is doing in my class. It is a wonderful system that really stresses making positive choices. Students can also set up accounts so they can see their point totals, as well as edit their avatars. Please be on the lookout for these invitations! If your child loses it, please contact me with your email address and I will have another invitation sent to you through email.
Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!
