Game time!

We are almost finished with our unit on Basketball.  We have learned rules, how to pass, dribble, and shoot.  But Basketball is more than just a game, it is also a tool that we use to teach: teamwork, communication, cooperation, and perseverance.  These are just a few life skills we teach at St. James to all of our children.  Everyone has Physical Education everyday here and they love it!  Learning can be fun, even if you have struggles.  Some students had some struggles this month with Basketball because of their height, but it made them stronger.  They learned how to use their size to their advantage.  They learned that you don't have to be the one to shoot the ball into the net to score.  It takes teamwork to score points.
