Hello Parents and Teachers,
We have completed our Circuit Training Unit. The students were really able to show how much improvement they have made!! We started out the school year with some circuit training before we did the fitnessgram assessment. It helps me to get an understanding of what each student is capable of at the start of the year. We also perform all of these exercises from circuit training during our strengthening exercises during each class throughout the year. It shows me how successful our athletes are. At the beginning of the year we really struggled with these movements. They participated in these activities with much more understanding and fluency!
We are now moving on to our team sport of basketball. We will work on skills of dribbling, passing, shooting as well as better understanding of offense and defense. We will use modified goals, balls, and equipment were appropriate. Weather permitting take your child out to the park or in your yard and let them show you all the things they are learning. If you are not up to that you can even watch a little basketball on T.V. with your child and discuss what they have learned in that manner
Our health lesson topic will be on communication. Because communication plays such a large part in everyone’s life it is even more important for our students who may have difficulty with it to learn about what is appropriate and inappropriate. We stress during the lesson good ways of communication such as: using your words, body language, writing, typing, or even sigh language. Many times I find that bridging the gap in communication helps to prevent behaviors as well. So if there are any specific tips that you have that work for your child feel free to pass it on to the teacher Anything that will enhance the success of your child/student.
