The girls completed their Jump Rope unit. It was fun watching them prepare their routines. At the end of the rope unit the girls performed their routines. We had a surprise visit from the Spice Girls. Yes, a group of our 6th grade girls dressed up like their favorite Spice Girl to do their routine.
Just before Spring Break the girls participated and completed the necessary FitnessGram. They ran/walked a timed mile, showed their flexibility in their shoulders and back, then finished with core and upper body strength by doing curl-ups and push-ups.
With the weather being lovely we have now moved to a Softball unit. The girls have be shown catching form for grounders, pop-ups, and chest area thrown balls along with throwing form. We are also covering proper hand placement on the bat and foot stance for batting. General softball rules and terms along with the 9 players positions will be covered too. Please go to PE assignments, click your PE class period to find the rules and a diagram of the softball field with the positions for you to study.
