Physical Education Spotlight

Students have been working hard in PE.  They have focused on balance and some gross motor skills that involve bear crawls, skipping and jumping jacks.  These activities require coordination of different muscles group as well as focus and body control.   With the decrease in outside play, sometimes development in gross motor can be lagging  for some children.  Different studies say that outdoor play time should be anywhere from 1-3 hours a day at a minimum. Try to include at least an hour a day of outdoor play (not an organized sport).
