Today we held our final co-op of the semester. For the high school kids, they worked hard on their speech class because they need to continue with another class session. However, the elementary students enjoyed a fun final day of literature (played some fun educational games), PE (played soccer), and science (had a party complete with marine animal-shaped cakes.
I didn’t get any photos of the cakes but Beth’s mother took some photos and posted them on her blog found here. I did get some photos and a short video of our PE soccer fun. We rented the mini-soccer field for about $20 for an hour of play (the kids have been begging to play in there all semester). It was a LOT of fun. We combined our two elementary groups so we had some big and little kids to split between the teams. The last 30 minutes the younger ones were mostly retreating to the shade (it was hot), but we all got some exercise and had a blast.
We actually attracted a small crowd to watch. Well, just three of our parents and a Mexican man who seemed to find the “game” very entertaining. I’m sure it was a version of soccer he’d never witnessed before!
