Kindergardeners are learning new games.

DSC_0061Some of the third graders were motivated to teach the kindergardeners how to play capture the flag.  Many of them are happy to try as they see the older children playing at recess and want to learn also.  Today we had two peer helpers help from Ms Dingus class.

Our warm up activity was the Oregon Trail Tag.  The class was divided into three groups one Lewis, Clark and York.  For more information on York click on this link shared by Mr Lauer

The Gord Game. ( Murphy’s and Leake’s class.)

This summer I was fortunate enough to grow a “class set” of gords.  Today the students were in teams and had to work together to find the gords for their teams pumpkin patch.  Each gord had a number on the bottom and we learned to recognize and match one they picked on the gym’s  center line.  DSC_0043 DSC_0046 DSC_0083 DSC_0091 DSC_0096 DSC_0100
