WOW! It is already February. We continue to learn about the Five Health Related Components of Fitness, Cardio-respiratory Endurance, Muscular Strength and Muscular Endurance, Flexibility and Body Composition. We will continue to review all Components but this month we are mainly focusing on Flexibility.. The fifth grade is preparing for the CBA's (classroom based assessment) that they will be taking this spring. This will include, "Mrs. Tremble's Muffins", a nutrition test as well as a test that covers all of the Five Components of Fitness.
Cardio-respiratory Endurance...The ability of the heart and lungs to supply oxygen to the muscles during long periods of physical activity. If the herart and lungs are working properly, a person should be able to walk, ride a bike, sim or jog for a long period of time. Keeping the heart and lungs in good shape means not being out of breath as often or getting tired quickly.
Muscular Endurance...The ability of the muscles to repeat a movement many times or hold a position without stopping to rest.
Muscular Strength...The ability of the muscle to push or pull with its total force.
Flexibility...The muscles' ability to move a joint through a full range of motion.
VOCABULAY WORDS; Blood, Lungs, Heart, Endurance, Pacing, Heart Rate, Oxygen, Extend, Flex, Joint, Ligament, Range of Motion, Tendon.
FEBRUARY is Jump Rope for Heart Month. We will be raising money for the American Heart Association. All money raised is due by March 1, 2016. Thank you so much for your support!
Remember, it is important to get up and move for at least 60 minutes a day. The weather is getting colder so bundle up, gather the family and go get some fresh air. Family walks, or back yard football games are a great way to get that heart pumping! ATTENTION 4th and 5th GRADE:
