IT'S A CELEBRATION:

BRAIN TEASER:

Are you smarter than a Fifth grader, Ms. Ana? See if you can answer the questions quicker than she can!

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT:

With the basics of locomotor and acrobatic skills completed, we can now focus on our foot-eye coordination skills! Athletes need foot-eye coordination to dribble the ball in a soccer game. You or your parents use these skills to know which pedal to press when driving. And use it every day when you are walking to class and you don’t trip in the hall. Just like hand-eye coordination, foot-eye coordination involves the way that one’s feet and sight work together to be able to do things that require speed and accuracy. This is a very important skill that is used daily by everybody. 

See how good your foot-eye coordination skills are by dribblingfocusing on where your feet land when running, or going through an obstacle course. If your foot-eye coordination skills are pretty good, this program could help you hone those skills and give you the opportunity to compete against others to see whose skills are the best! If these skills need work, this program will allow you to practice these skills in a safe, positive environment

DAILY CHALLENGE:

ART CHALLENGE!

Salt art at the carnival! 

There are many ways to create salt art, but here is how it was done by Ms. Eliana and Ms. Oriana at the Dr. Ledyard E. Ross Unit: 

  • Paint the canvas a base color of your choice and let it dry 
  • Mix the salt with food coloring to turn the salt whatever color you like 
  • Create a design on the canvas with white glue and then cover it with salt 
  • Paint the rest of your canvas whatever colors you like to complete your design!
