Y on the Fly: Week 1

The first week for Y on the Fly was a flavorful one! Sea salt and pepper to be exact!!  Our first stop was at the Tunbridge Elementary day camp, followed by several other programs such Windsor Hills- R.E.A.D.S, Stillmeadow- B.L.A.S.T- Building Lives Around Sound Truth, Francis Scott Key- R.E.A.D.S, and The SEED School- Baltimore Symphony Orchestra/ Orch Kids.

This week’s highlights include students participating in stretch sessions through a game called “Pizza Delivery” to work on physical health, team building and strategy. The students had to stand in the middle of a hula hoop while the remaining members of the team work together to hold the hula and prevent it from touching the “delivery man/woman” until they get the “pizza” (bean bag) to a house safely.  Students also were able to earn book bags as incentives.

Other activities included making pipsqueak sandwiches, learning the importance of healthy food groups, fun facts about cucumbers, Food Group Dash, 3 line basketball, Dodgeball, Soccer Shoot Out, Hula hoop Tic Tac Toe (9 hula hoops are place on the ground. Students are broken off into two teams must race get three bean bags in a row), and 7-up Tag where students were not only moving and staying physically active but worked on communication and honesty as well.

It was a festive first week!
