Currently, our class is playing Soccer and will begin Touch next week! An additional program that ISM has implemented this year is Fitnessgram. We have completed the Pacer and Curl Up Test with the Push-up, and the Back Saver Sit and Reach to follow. Please feel free to browse through any of the tests online in case you would like to practice or have your family give it a try : )!!!
This week we started our Soccer Unit, we reviewed dribbling and passing techniques. Next week, we will move to trapping and small sided games. The assessment task for this unit is based on your ability to work with teammates in a positive manner as well as your skill level while participating in game situations.
