This morning we had our school Olympics for the upper grade. Mr. K and I were in charge of the “shot putt,” which was really a softball-size 5-pound ball. We weren’t really given any instructions on how to run it, or even how the day was going to go. It turns out each event would get a set of grade-level boys or girls. You ran your event with them, and then when each event was finished, they would rotate.
Mr. K came up with a good way for us to find a 1st – 3rd winner.
The morning was actually pretty fun. Mrs. S let us borrow some of her 2nd graders to help, and I think our event ran pretty smoothly. I think everyone was hot and tired, but it stayed mostly cloudy for most of the morning, so it wasn’t too bad.
We were finished by recess. Everyone got a bottle of water and some grapes when they were done.
