|Zion (grade K) having a blast running the mile|

P.E. at the Black Butte School is pretty fun! We all almost always love or like the game we play. The first couple weeks of school we learned about and played soccer. All the kids are great at soccer. For the past few weeks we haven't really had a specific sports theme, but we always play really fun games. We only have P.E on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I kinda like that, because then no one feels like they are being pushed too hard.

My favorite game that we have played, so far, is Hi-Li. Hi-Li is kind of like tennis, except instead of having to hit the ball, you catch it and throw it back to the person who threw it to you. We usually do that in pairs of two for about 15-20 minutes. Then we all get together and we have to try to throw the ball into the one of five different buckets. We have five balls each, the first bucket is worth one point, the second is two, the third is 3. The person with the most points at the end of the time period wins!
All in all, P.E is really fun here at Black Butte School. I love almost all of the games that we play and I hope the other kids do too. I am looking forward to some of off-campus P.E. adventures we will have later in the school year like cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, swimming, and rock climbing!
