Sat, Mar 21 1:30pm

Hello Students, Families and Staff at Thornhill Elementary,

This is Ms. Ostrom, also known as Ms. O. Please set goals for yourself to stay healthy. Keeping a journal with written postings and pictures will help you stay on track.

Physical education standards,  first warmup your entire body with your favorite exercises: arm circles, trunk twist, monkey dance, pushups, burpees, wall sit, mountain climbers, jumping jacks…  This should take only about 5 minutes.

Below are a variety of resources to help you maintain your fitness and have fun at the same time. Please remember to take a few minutes to stretch when you are done playing.

Drink water before, during and after exercise. Studies say that for optimal hydration you should drink ½ your body weight in ounces. That means for example if you weight 100 pounds then you should drink 50 ounces of water every day.
