Pre-K students have started investigating how to work together to accomplish goals with Parachute Time! Everyone wants to run under the parachute but that cannot happen unless everyone else helps lift it up high. Taking turns, working towards a common goal, and celebrating each other's successes - all while smiling and laughing and dancing, TOO FUN!
Elementary Teachers took part in a professional development session about Activity Breaks. The research is SO clear that all people (and especially children) need to get up and move with frequency to be their best selves. This can be challenging in a classroom full of chairs, desks, and book shelves.
Upon returning from Winter Break 4th Grade spent their first Fitness & Adventure class reconnecting with their crew mates in the game Cross the River. Students have to work together to safely get everyone from one end to the other without touching the floor. It was a super fun as everyone wanted "just a little more time" and helped students dust-off their collaboration skills.
