Today we will be having a lot of fun while playing and listening to directions. We will pay close attention to our personal and general space. We also use common courtesy while we interact with our fellow classmates during all of the activities.

Red Rover, Red Rover, if you have brown hair come over, which is what the teacher calls out to the students. At this time the students try to run to the other side of the gymnasium without being tagged by the person in the middle. If tagged, that student can help tag other students, or freeze until another student tags them to free them.
Beach Ball Freeze Tag, which involves two students who are "it" with two beach balls. The remainder of the student's spread out in general space. The two students have to try to throw the ball at other students to freeze them up. Students who are dodging the ball can free the other students who are frozen by crawling thru their legs.
Red light Green light, involves the teacher or student in the middle of the floor holding two signs. One sign is green and the other sign is red. The teacher holds up one of the signs and yells that command, while the other students try to reach the other end of the gymnasium. They can utilize any locomotor movement they choose.
Today we learned how to incorporate different movements in activities, while exercising and having fun. I want to thank everyone for listening and behaving correctly. Movement is important because it keeps our bodies healthy. The more we move and play the more we are keeping our hearts healthy.
