Water Polo - tons of fun! It was a great afternoon in the pool. Students demonstrated their skills before heading to the deep end. Once there, they practised some basic strokes, worked to throw and catch with one hand and then played a short game. Next time most of the session will be spent in game play which the students are very excited about.
We welcomed Mr. Fourchalk back to our class today. He will be re-immersing himself as the classroom teacher over the next couple of weeks and then he will be taking over 80% of the teaching time for 6 weeks. This opportunity will allow Mr. Fourchalk the chance to fine tune his skills as an educator. The students were excited to see him back in our room.
1) LA - FOUND poem - continue to develop your poems. Many of you did not have a clear theme to your poem. Use the modelling I did today to help guide you this afternoon/tonight when you find the words to complete your poem. Remember - complete sentences and proper grammar are not part of the rules when writing poetry.
Comments: Video Link Men's Water Polo Quarter Final This is a lengthy clip but watch some or all of this to see how the game is played. Comment on how water polo went for you today. What went well for you and what would you like to improve? What are you looking forward to? Please make sure you read your comments as some of you are once again rushing and forgetting the criteria. Check for spelling, grammar and punctuation as well!
