Skyping With Mr. Mark

After reading about Adventure to Fitness on someone's blog last fall (can't remember which one), I signed my class up. We used it a lot on rainy days. I showed it to our PE teacher and she uses it from time to time. My kids love doing it. They get so excited when they are having to outrun a rhinocerous or dinosaur. I know they know it isn't real, but they sure get caught up in the storyline.

I was so excited when I got an email from Mr. Mark telling me my class was one of the top 5 users in the state of Oklahoma. Mr. Mark wanted to Skype with our class using a webcam. Well to day was the day, the kids were just beside themselves with excitement, so was I. I completely forgot to get my camera out for the photo op. BUMMER!!!

At the beginning, he asked the kids some questions, some of them gave some good answers. He asked the kids how he could get Mr. Lazy to eat fruits and vegetables. One of my girls said that we could make the fruits and vegetables look like candy. I thought that was a great answer. Then he gave the kids a chance to ask him some questions.

If you haven't checked out Adventure to Fitness, you really should, it's GREAT!
