Please watch the two videos on snowshoes.  We will be snowshoeing on our new trail system when we are back to in-person learning.

Choose a favourite activity such as dance, yoga, or indoor tennis to help stay active while indoors. 

Be creative, build a fort or an obstacle course using cushions, blankets, pillows, etc. 

We miss you all and hope to see you soon!

Please take some time to get outside and play!  this yoga video incorporates many of our static balances and is suitable for all ages but may appeal to our older grades.

Cosmic kids yoga is nice for younger children:

Take advantage of the beautiful weather in our forecast and get outside for at least 30mins. each day. Going for a walk, a jog, kicking a ball in the backyard, riding your bike, skateboard or scooter are a few activities you can do. Being outside is very important for both our physical and mental well being. 

Check out the document below for more ideas to keep you active during the week. 

November 11th is a day to reflect on the sacrifices our veterans have made to protect our freedom. If you can, attend a Remebrance Day ceremony, or spend some quiet time reflecting. 

We miss you all! Stay active, healthy and safe!

If the weather is nice, please do your best to get outside for 30mins of acitivity.  Grades 3-5, you can practice the basic soccer kicks we reviewed in class (instep and lace kicks) and K-2 can practice kicking with your instep. Remember: SAY NO TO THE TOE :)

We are attaching some activities that tie nicely into our curriculum. There are active links for you to click on (super hero characters and hyper text links in the skills and strategies).

Most of all, have fun, stay active and stay positive!

This week we have included a few different activities for you to try. The goal for each day is for a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity. Remember that these minutes can be spread out throughout the day or done all at once.  Also feel free to change the order of any activity and if there is something you really like, do it as many times as you want and as always, we love it when you come up with your own activity.  

Tuesday – Indoor/outdoor Bowling 

Make your own bowling game using old plastic bottles (6 or 10 works well). If you play outside, add a little water to each bottle to help keep them standing. Make a starting line using sidewalk chalk or masking tape, grab a ball and have some fun. Challenge someone in your family and yourself by adding more bottles or moving the starting like back.  

Variation for outside:  try kicking a ball at the pins

Wednesday - Go for a walk or jog with your family and try to find all the following items in any order: 

1.       A bicycle  

2.       Someone walking 

3.       A birdfeeder 

4.       A house with Halloween decorations   

5.       A basketball or hockey net 

6.       An odd numbered house 

7.       A swing set  

8.       A dog or cat 

9.       A STOP sign 

10.   A piece of sports equipment (i.e. soccer ball, hockey stick, etc.)

Thursday – Make your own obstacle course.   

This can be done inside or outside (I made my children do this OUTSIDE). Use items that you can run around, go over/under. Time yourself and challenge someone in your family to beat your time.
