At home instruction ...
To all those who want to do something physical everyday ....
On to week twelve!!! We did it!!! Great job everyone!! - Let's make it a great final week!! The weather will be good for most days, so get out there and get active (if parents give you permission). There are many activities below that maybe you haven't had a chance to check out. There is a walking scavenger hunt for those taking a walk with the family. You can always participate in the field day games, partner activities (catch-up run, bounce ball), sportskool (lacrosse, basketball, soccer and softball skills) and hula hoop & jump rope workouts. If you can't get outside, try the plank challenge or any of the yoga, dance, superhero or fitness videos. Have fun!! If this is the last time you come to my website - I want to wish you a HAPPY HEALTHY SUMMER!!! (I will keep the activities on the website in case you want to do them over the summer.)

Week 12 - ending June 5
Week 11 - ending May 29
April 28April 21April 14 - HERE IS AN IDEA FOR THE PARENTS/GUARDIANS/OLDER SIBLINGS (who celebrated Easter and have plastic eggs) TRY EGGCERCISE!! Fill the plastic eggs with different exercise notes (examples - 5 jumping jacks, 20 second plank, 10 star jumps, 10 ski jumps, 5 push ups, 5 sit ups, 5 burpees, etc.). When they find an egg they must do the exercise before they can hunt for another. Once they have found a certain number of eggs - they can receive a reward (chocolate, crackers, an hour of youtube, etc. - whatever motivates them or you want to give). If you have more than one child make it a team effort (example of exercises for partners or teams - ABC push-ups, 10 partner sit-ups, team jumping jacks, wheelbarrel walk to next egg, team burpees, who can plank the longest, etc.) Have fun with it!! p.s. - if you do it I would love to see pictures!!April 6 - On to week four - I have tried to make getting to the videos easier by putting them on this welcome page. Check it out - I add new videos everyday!! I was motivated by seeing on the news a few people doing marathons in their backyards or on their balconies. I know that is not easy but there are some walking videos that you can do in the house if you can't get outside - try them - they are in the fitness section. Also, I have added videos to help you with sport skills called sportskool - these are videos to help you with - foot dribbling, basketball dribbling, shooting baskets, throwing and lacrosse skills - give them a try!

Information regarding class objective, curriculum, grading and rules are located in - Back to School Night - Class Information.Keep up on your fitness - work on your flexibility with stretching; abdominal strength with curl ups; upper body strength with push ups. If you go outside work on your cardio-respiratory endurance by jogging and/or walking briskly and your agility by changing directions while moving around.
