March 20, 2015: PE

Our gymnastics unit has started with foot balance courses on graded stepping stones and balance beams. We have practiced walking forwards and sideways and jumping from stone to stone. Our courses will get more challenging in the coming weeks as our sense of balance grows stronger and we will walk backwards and on our hands and feet. We are also practicing shifting our weight from our feet to our hands to perform donkey kicks, rabbit hops, and monkey hops. This will prepare us for the beginnings of a cartwheel, tumbles and other rolls as our work in gymnastics continues.
