PE - Basketball

We recently finished our time learning the game of basketball. We learned how to dribble, shoot, pass, what offense and defense are, and we tried to play some too. The kids really improved tremendously in our few weeks together playing basketball. Unfortunately, the net being 10 feet high was a big too high for most of them to make a bucket, but they did well.
I had forgotten how difficult it is to grasp concepts like offense with getting open, passing the ball, and not bunching up. We did our best and they started to understand more and more as we played.
We started soccer today, but now have a 3 week break for Christmas. When we start up again we will have some of the older kids back from furlough, so that will make things interesting and challenging for sure.
