PHY ED (not in a gymnasium)

Scout Road Schoolhouse
Winter Fun

"Tips For Success!!"

When attempting to teach a young one a new skill, don't plan on participating in the adventure,'re along for support!

Take pictures of the new adventure during the beginning of the trip...emotions of students and teacher often quickly fall into frustration.

Give the very littlest ones a "job" like...pulling the sled, very important work.

Sometimes let the very littlest ones try out the sporting equipment.  It produces feelings of importance!

Allow older children to venture far and wide on their own...convinced they "know how to do it".  (Note to adult....most of the time, they do "know how to do it"!!)

Allow for proper rest times and bribe with chocolate treats at the adventures end!

Above all, while engaging in PHY ED, keep 'em moving!

There is nothing better than rosy cheeks and happy smiles (of course chocolate helps!). Looks like a good time had by all with Lena out front going full speed.
Love ya, Janenne
