The Physical Education program is designed with a focus on:
- Developing physical fitness & understanding the benefits of being physically active.
- Developing movement skills and manipulative skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities.
- Developing a sense of fair play, good sportsmanship, teamwork and respect of others.
- Developing the desire to be physically active for good health & enjoyment.
Students at Forrest St. receive 30 minutes of Physical Education every other day on our six day rotation. Please be sure to note the days your child will attend PE. The students are generally very active during class. It is helpful if they dressed comfortably for activities that require a variety of movements. Please provide your child with a safe pair of “gym” shoes with non-marking soles on Physical Education days. Students may wear other shoes to school and change into their gym shoes before class. Inappropriate shoes (sandals, flip-flops, dress shoes) can become a safety hazard when moving in the gym or outside and may even hinder your child’s physical development in certain skills and movements.
This is the second installment of what Literacy Collaborative looks like in the School District of Black River Falls. Reader’s Workshop is one of the three blocks in the Literacy Collaborative framework.
The goal of this block for primary students (K-2nd) is for students to gain knowledge of the reading process through guided reading where students in small groups read texts selected to meet their specific needs and through independent reading where they read a variety of self-selected and teacher-selected texts. Students engage in conversation about literature and activities that support comprehension of texts. Other students at this time, when not receiving direct instruction, are actively engaged in independent reading, writing, and word study centers.
The goal of this block for intermediate students (3rd-5th) is for students to read for extended periods a variety of self-selected and teacher-selected texts at their instructional levels. They construct meaning through personal and textual connections demonstrated in weekly reading journal letters between students and teachers, regular meetings in guided reading groups, and literature study groups. Students internalize effective comprehension strategies that they apply to fiction and nonfiction texts.
Watch for more exciting literacy information to come!
