As in previous years.. Classrooms will be divided into 4 “color teams” red, blue, yellow, and green. There will be stations that each classroom rotates through. Every 9-10 minutes there will be a signal to rotate. (The classroom teacher will rotate with the class to help manage, and participate if he/she wishes.) At each station the volunteers will be ready with directions and how to line up according to ‘color team’. The volunteers will lead the activities at each station- please have students say “thank-you’ before they move on to the next station. To help promote teamwork and to help identify teams, students are encouraged to wear their designated color. (Once again, Color teams will be assigned in each classroom prior to Field Day.)
1. Each classroom is to stay together for the station rotation.
2. Each classroom must stay in their assigned area for the duration of their activity, or event, until a signal is given to move to the next area.
3. Students are encouraged to promote a positive team atmosphere.
Helpful Field Day Tips
Following are some items that you may want to consider sending with your child on field day:
Sunscreen – Some field days have been very warm and sunny, and as we will be outside for over an hour, sunscreen can be very important.
Water Bottle – We will have a water /treat station, but a water bottle can be convenient, as long as they are used appropriately. (Please put student name on water bottle)
Hat – Not necessary, but they are allowed.
Dry Clothes – Not necessary, but if it is warm enough, we play a game where students may get quite wet, so you may want to send a spare shirt or clothing if you wish.
