This past week has been a fun one! The weather definitely cooperated. Our grade 3-5 students have been doing some preparation for our geocaching unit. We’ve spent some time on the iPads learning more about geocaching:
- What is Geocaching?
- How do you play it?
- What are the rules?
- What does C.I.T.O. stand for?
Students have also spent some time with the GPS units to familiarize themselves with them. Next week M. Koester and I will be hiding caches around our school yard and the students will get a chance to put their geocaching skills to the test. If you would like to try out geocaching at home a great place to start is the geocaching website: http://www.geocaching.com. It’s free to join and there’s a free app for iPhone and Android devices.
Our K-2 students have been playing a variety of low organized games. We’ve continued to work on kicking skills, however, we have also added in some other skills at the same time. We’ve been playing some dodgeball games and some tag games.
Our grade 5 badminton team is playing today in our annual Stevenson, Strathmillan, Browning badminton tournament at Strathmillan School. 12 students will have the opportunity to show off what they’ve learned throughout the month of May during badminton club. Best of luck to all participants!
