Dye Elementary is joining a challenge for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders starting March 1st!
To encourage the increased practice of daily physical activity with a special focus on school-aged children, the Genesee Intermediate School District and Commit to fit collaborated to create the Active Schools Challenge. The challenge focuses on daily tracking of minutes of physical activity and emphasizes that all forms of physical activity count. The challenge goal will encourage students at participating schools to achieve an average of 30 minutes of physical activity per day. Physical activity can occur both in and out of school throughout the challenge timeframe (March 1-31, 2021).
Our students at Dye Elementary will be receiving a weekly log in their classes to bring home to fill out and return every week. There will be extra logs at the school, on the Dye web page and on Ms. Masi’s google classroom. This challenge is for the entire month of March. The goal is to write in the log four weeks of exercising for 30 minutes or more a day and turn in!
Here are some activities you might do at home to add to your log:
Walking, Jumping Jacks, Burpees, Gymnastics practice, Martial Arts practice, Basketball, Dance Lessons, Running, Skiing, Skating, Chores (sweeping, snow shoveling, moping, vacuuming), Just Dance, Yoga, Trampolining, Wii Games, DEAM Calendar Activities – on Ms. Masi’s Google Classroom, PE with Joe, Bike, Hopscotch, Scootering, Catch, Sevens, Jump Rope, Hula Hooping, Walk your Dog, Swim, Dance, or any of the games from Ms. Masi’s Google Classroom.
