Gym - 

Hello everyone! Today we are focusing on our cognitive development, balance, and hand-eye coordination through the game of hopscotch! I will show you how to create a hopscotch, show you different styles and the different things you can do with a hopscotch (head over to seesaw to watch) Please get creative and share your wonderful ideas with me! JK's: Jump on two feet, then try one foot. SK's: Jump on two feet, try one foot, try switching between both feet and only one! Grade 1's: Jump on two feet, try one foot for both feet, throw an object and hop to where it landed. Grade 2's: Two feet, one foot for both feet, try criss-crossing your feet, try doing a frog jump where your hands touch the ground when you hop. Grade 3’s: Try missing squares, going backwards, or get your hands involved by touching certain squares with your hands. Learning Goals: We are learning how to create and play hopscotch. We are learning how to balance on one or two feet. We are learning how to hop from space to space. Success Criteria: I can be creative with the materials I use to create a hopscotch. I can jump from two feet onto one, or one foot onto two.

For example: To make a jam sandwich I would use: 2 slices of bread, jam, and butter.  Then they can draw a picture of what they made, either real or pretend. Have fun!

Music - 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Here is today's music lesson. You are welcome to send me photos of your music notes made from food to amcmillan@stjudesacademy.com

Grapes) and long lines (a carrot stick). Quarter notes have a circle (a grape) with a stem coming out the right side (a carrot stick). Take a picture of your music notes. Have fun😊 Then you may eat your music notes for snack time!

Have a great day!

PE with Ms. V!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Since we are all learning how to use SeeSaw today, I thought it would be a good idea to relax and take some time for ourselves today. We will be doing Yoga today to relax our bodies and minds, focus on our breathing and be mindful with ourselves. You may choose to do one of the following activities: Yoga Card (photo below)– Do each pose and hold the stretch for 20 seconds or more Yoga in the Hive https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=14&v=X655B4ISakg&feature=emb_logo Cosmic Kids Yoga – Kickapoo the Kangaroo https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=VmmbWcOtblU&feature=emb_logo HOMEWORK: Think of an activity that you would like to master while learning from home. It must be something involving physical fitness. We will work on these goals throughout the next couple of weeks. I will be asking for responses throughout the week. Examples: - Dribble a soccer ball - Jump rope - Do a cartwheel - Balance on one foot for 30 seconds Have a great day!!

Are you ready!?!?

Music - Ms. McMillan

I loved seeing the pictures of the musical instruments that you made at home!  Today for music class we will begin by:

1. Clapping Food Rhythms.  For example, clap "ta, ta" and say "Ice cream" and clap,"ta, titi" and say "hamburger." The last row of rhythms clap "tika tika ti ti" and say "pepperoni pizza". Next class I will send you a video where you can watch me clap these rhythms and you can clap with me! 
2. Practice singing along to your favourite "Frozen 2" songs or "Disney" songs, or a song of your choice with the new instrument that you made.  Have fun keeping in time to the music.
3. With chalk go outside and draw some of the following rhythms on the sidewalk or driveway.  Have fun! If you do not have chalk you can practice drawing your rhythms on paper with crayon or marker, or make your music notes with playdough.  

Next music class you will be able to sing along to my you tube video for you to sing some of your favorite songs with me at home!
