Miss Duquette has been sponsoring a skipping club for intermediate students at lunch time since September and tomorrow the students will perform for two judges and hopefully be chosen to be the demo team for Jump Rope For Heart. If chosen, the club will travel to other schools in the district to exhibit their skipping mastery. The skipping team wanted to perform for the school before the tryouts tomorrow and so we enjoyed their performance in the gym this afternoon. Team Awesome saw some great skipping tricks, performed by students in our school who are only a few years older than them. Their enthusiasm for skipping was kindled and more than a few crazy and imaginative skipping stories and tricks were shared afterwards. I hope they retain this enthusiasm through to gr. 3, when they will be old enough to join Miss Duquette at lunch times.
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
