March P.E.

Welcome to March everybody!

It's that time of year again.  The drama program is fired up and busy working on this year's production.
That means the stage is all built and our gym space is more limited than normal.  Sounds like a great time to DANCE!!!!!

All grade levels are developing motor plans to music.  Pre-k-2 are learning a variety of folk dances as well as some contra dances when they mix with our middle school classes.  Grades 3-5 are working on similar things at a more advanced level.  We will challenge them with "mixer" folk dances, contra dances, and some introductory line dances.  Middle school students are working in designated groups of 4-6 students and learning line dances of their choice.  They will learn the dances, teach the dances, and perform the dances throughout the unit.  So far, middle schoolers are doing great work getting these dances learned and organized.  Should be an exciting unit!

Take care.  Spring will be here before we know it!
