This Week at School
A few weeks ago, I mentioned setting up the Mission Impossible course. Here are some pictures to show you the kids having fun with it. It's an obstacle course created with all kinds of equipment and they have to follow rules to get through to the end and save the world. Working in partners, one student is the secret agent and one is the spy. The Secret Agent is not allowed to talk while working through the course or he has to go back to the beginning and they trade places. It doesn't seem to matter how many times they do it, they still want to try again!
Lots of the activities require coordination (walking on the balance beam, stepping through the rings) and the whole range of gross motor skills.
The activity came down today and the volleyball nets went up for beach ball volleyball as our next activity.
And we made Thanksgiving turkeys, using a potato as the body - but I forgot to take a single picture!! Sorry!!
Hope you all enjoy the long weekend as much as we will!!!!
