This year in 3rd and 4th grade we will be focusing on a number of topics. Please take a look at the topics below to gain an understanding of our curriculum and what your students will be learning!

1) Cooperative Games: in this unit, the students will learn the importance of cooperation and communication in order to be successful. They will be given a series of tasks and will be expected to complete them not quickly, but efficiently. Stress management, communication, listening and understanding will be the skills emphasized.

2) Physical Fitness Testing: Physical fitness testing will be done based on the Fitnessgram test. It will be done twice during the year, once in the fall and once in the spring to be able to see improvements. The tests will cover back and leg flexibility, upper body strength, cardiovascular endurance, and abdominal strength.

3) Fitness: Students will learn about the 5 health-related components of fitness: muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and body mass index.

4) SPORTS!: Sports take up most of our school year. Throughout our soccer, softball, volleyball, badminton, basketball and hockey units, the students are not only taught the fundamentals of the sport but also sportsmanship and teamwork.
