In PE today Mr. R talked to the class about pacing yourself for an endurance event, such as the Carry5 Walk for Water on Sunday that many 2nd graders are planning to attend. He gave the students "medicine balls" (weighted balls) to carry while walking laps around the playground, alternating with a partner.
We are loving our water song! (I can't stop singing it myself!) We practiced several times today in class and it's incredible how quickly the kids are learning it. Here are the lyrics and the MP3 files (with Connor Desai singing vocals and without) for home practice. Our tentative date to perform is at the Monday Morning Meeting on May 12.
