Hope everyone is doing well during this unexpected break from school. Please make sure you are trying to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day! Your activity time can be spread out throughout the day and gives you the chance to be creative and keep your bodies healthy. Listed below are some skills you can review as well as some fun links for you and your family to try! Please feel free to reach out to me at my email, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you want to share a pic of your scholar being physically fit!

If you have any of the equipment below (frisbee, ball, jump rope, balloon etc), you can practice reviewing or working on any of the skills that we’ve learned in PE class this year. Click on any of the underlined links for more specifics.
- Jump Rope: If you have a jump rope, you can review some of the Single Jump Rope Tricks we learned in PE, or if you have a sibling or family member you could even try out some of the Partner Tricks we learned
- Throwing and Catching: If you have space in your yard and it’s safe to go outside, try to practice throwing and catching with a family member with a ball or a frisbee
- Striking a Balloon (awesome activity for K-2nd Grade)
- Blow up a balloon and practice striking it with different items in your house (or different body parts)
- What is the hardest item or body part to control the balloon with? What’s your record for the most number of hits without moving your feet?
- Here’s an example of this balloon striking activity
- Basketball: If you have a basketball or playground ball, practice some of the ball handling drills and challenges that we worked on in PE over the last few weeks
Stay Safe, Have Fun and Keep Yourself Active!
