What to Expect at Health & P.E. Classes
When students arrive at HealthWorks!, they will check-in with Ms. Kim, the Educator, in the \front lobby and get a name tag. Parents may pay for the week’s session at the front desk if needed. The kids will be directed to the Funtastic Floor to play before class gets started!
Shortly after 10:00, Kim will gather the students in Learning Lab 1 for a fun and interactive lesson on that week’s topic! Students are encouraged to participate and be involved in each class.
After the lesson, students head into the Zoom Room for P.E.! Kids will participate in fun physical challenges that relate back to the health lesson they just completed.
Parents are welcomed to stay for Health and P.E., however most parents drop their children off and return at 11:45. Parents will need to sign their child out at the Health Hut on the Funtastic Floor before leaving. Kids and parents may stay and play on the Funtastic Floor when Health and P.E. is over!
Do you have little ones younger than Kindergarten age? Hip Hoppers is a great program for them! Hip Hoppers is a story and activity time for the preschoolers with their grown-up that runs concurrently with the health program. The Hip Hoppers program does not follow the Home School Syllabus but covers health and developmental lessons and activities for toddlers and preschool children. For more information click here.
