Paper on the Gym Floor

December 9, 2014

Over the weekend we held our annual Holiday Bazaar. Part of the set up for this involves covering our gym floor with heavy paper in order to protect the floor as we turn the gym into a space for setting up tables and booths for our vendors. Each year the paper gets put down and then at the end of the bazaar, volunteers take up the paper for recycling. This year our PE teacher, Millie Layman asked that we not pull up the paper at the end of the bazaar, but rather leave it so she could use the paper on the floor the first day back after the bazaar.

On Monday she had all of her students work on creating charts and signs that she plans to use in the gym. These include skip counting banners to help students learn to count by 3s, 4s, 5s and so on, rather than just counting off by 1s when doing their PE warm-ups. In addition she worked with our special education team to create some opportunities for some special needs students and their classmates that involved painting with pendulums, and using a special swing as a pendulum to create spiral art.

All in all a nice way to change up the regular PE class. Nice work Ms. Layman.
