Kia ora and welcome to Room 3's class blog! Here you will be able to see what we have been learning about in, and outside of the class. We will update our blog weekly with photos, videos, and samples of our work. We will also share with you any important notices through our blog. Please feel free to leave comments below =)
In Room 3, we participate in some type of fitness every 15 minutes or so. This is to keep our bodies moving and our brains refreshed. Sometimes we play a game outside e.g.
Sneak up Granny
Rob the Nest
Here, there, and everywhere
...and sometimes we play a game inside e.g.
Duck Duck Goose
Heads down thumbs up etc.
Our favourite fitness activity in Room 3 so far seems to be dancing. We use the Go Noodle website to help us. First you sign up and choose a monster. The children then participate in 10 dances in order to make the monster grow. Once the monster has danced 10 times and grown his muscles, he maxes out that level and the children get to choose a new monster to dance with. It is very motivating and exciting! So far, Room 3 have participated in 270 minutes of dancing this term! That is a lot of dancing!
You can sign up at home for free! Give it a try. It will give your child (and you perhaps) endless hours of fun and they don't even realise they're exercising! Keep up the great work Room 3.
