This week we have been exploring how we can make balanced food choices and choices about how we use our free time. We had fun using the Your Name fitness chart below to have some fun exercise that didn’t need any equipment.
Your learners set a challenge for you. To spell YOUR name and take on the fitness challenge. Don’t panic if you have M in your name, we changed somersaults to roly polys.
Learners would love to take a photo of you using your free time for fitness and send it to me at school. Thanks for accepting the challenge!
We read the Dr. Suess book My Many Colored Days this week. We talked about how colors can represent our feelings, how it is important to talk about how we feel and what we can do when our feelings get out of control! We are thinking about how our mental health is part of what makes us healthy. We made a display that shows how we all have unique connections to colors – just like Dr. Suess.
