We are finishing up our gymnastics unit in the coming weeks. Our foot balance courses have grown in complexity and students are offering their ideas for how to move on them and how to put them together. We have learned different rolls and tumbles, challenging us to reflect on how different parts of our bodies move together to perform these skills. We are also inventing our own rolls as we individually decide how to move on the mats. Our hand balance is also growing stronger with falling monkey hops, preparing us for cartwheels in the years to come. As summer approaches we will begin our review and revisit our important skills of the past year.
