The PULL comes to Georgetown!

pullThis fall we are fortunate to host two student teachers:  Miss Ashley Barbieri from Hope College is teaching with Mrs. Reifschneider and Miss Stacey Bouwkamp is from Calvin College, teaching with Mrs. Kuieck.  We have several veteran staff who are graduates of Hope or Calvin—and because my husband is a professor at Hope, I have been accused of Flying Dutchman favoritism.   To prove that I do not have a favored school when it comes to student teachers, we will host a friendly PULL competition on Friday.

HopeHope and Calvin hosts their own “pulls”–and we will set this up as a mud-free, student friendly event.  Mr. Kooiker (our Calvinintrepid teacher assistant, football recess coach, playground supervisor, and overall morale booster) will ‘ref the event.

This is also our first popcorn day and our team building recess day for  grades 3,4, and 5.

We invite all  students to wear either HOPE Flying Dutchman colors (blue/orange) or Calvin Knight colors (maroon/gold) to support a team.  Students who are best dressed will be selected to help with the pull.

Of course, we will have video of the event to share after the event!  Go Dutch!  Go Knights!

Recess Games = Team Building

During the second week of school, we continued to focus on climate (BE NICE) in the classroom, hallways, lunchroom and playground.  To help students learn games for the playground, we paired upper el students with lower el students focused on fun, trouble free games.

Mrs. Jurewicz and a team of teachers led outside recess game training on September 18th.  You can view photos from this day on Mrs. Quigley’s blog. We will hold another day of training for grades 3,4 and 5 — and this training will culminate in a PULL (tug-o-war) to determine which local college is tops (Hope or Calvin).  This will be held on September 25 which is also our first popcorn day.  Details coming about how to pick your team in a post later this week.

We also created a video tutorial for inside recess games during rainy or very cold Michigan days.  Actors featured are from Mrs. Boersma, Mr. Gort, Mrs. Jurewicz, and Mrs. Bouwen’s classes.   These are games that can be played at home, too.
