Physical Education Coach Lopez Grades Pre-K through 7 The weather conditions in February caused a lot of delay on activities planned for the outdoors; however, we recovered with activities that had the kids excited to perform. During one of the classes, we were introduced to Speed Stacking, an activity that develops motor skills, patterning, focus, and concentration. This in turn helps hand-eye coordination and ambidexterity that can be essential for both sports and daily life functions. Here are links that introduce the sport itself and if interested a link to purchase them: Introduction: Learning to Stack https://tinyurl.com/y8f78ytj Quick Stacking Cups https://tinyurl.com/ycz8wlyr On days when we were outside, we did multiple team building games that involved strategy and execution. Within teams students were able to use their strengths to contribute their skills for the greater good. Capture the Flag was a huge standout for all grade levels. The kids enjoyed getting to strategize and be able to still run free with a game that lets them go at their own pace. Next month we look forward to introducing tons of new team sports for the spring season. We are looking to bring in field hockey, volleyball, and possibly lacrosse during P.E. 17
