March 22 subbing

Today I taught P.E. at two Westland elementary schools. Boy, can those 4th graders argue about EVERYthing. Honestly. I finally had to remove a boy from the class because he was interfering with the sideline soccer game continually.

I did a little of everything today – 4th grade down thru Kindergarten and we did sideline soccer with 2nd grade and up, and did some relays, some basketball shooting, some free time with balls all over the place, the “Hokey Pokey” with the youngest ones and yes, even the Pizza Hut song with one group and the Barney “Raindrops” song with another, and “The Ants Go Marching” as we    marched around the red circle in the middle of the gym.  For awhile I let them have free play,  and then we tried playing a couple of games that didn’t go well due to lack of “listening ears”. They all got exercise and most had a good time, except for those who were determined to whine, complain, tattle and take note of every single close-to-an-infraction that existed. I got a little exercise, but mostly I just directed, refereed, and enjoyed a certain amount of cuteness – and deja vu.
