In many ways, this has been a long winter. In Phy Ed class, however, winter seems to have flown by. We have completed units on volleyball, scooters, floor hockey. We are now in the middle of the parachute unit. Volleyball was a time to explore using balloons and beachballs to establish and reinforce their volleyball skills of passing and serving at their level. In the woodlands, they used the volley-lite balls for many of their games. The highlight of our scooter unit was of course "Highway" where students rode the entier period on their scooter around the gym in an obstacle course style "city" obeying the rules of the road while having to avoid collisions and rock slides. In some cases, the students had to visit the "jail" until they were freed. The floor hockey unit provided an opportunity to learn and continue to develop thier dribbling, passing and shooting skills (using various balls and pucks) all while keeping their sticks at or below knee level.
