Field Day

Thank you for signing up to help with Field Day this year. EC Field Day will take place from 9:15 am-11:35 am on Friday, May 24th, at several locations throughout the school. We could not have this event without our wonderful volunteers so thank you for agreeing to be part of our special day. If you have a pop-up tent you can donate for the day or you are interested in helping to set up from 8:30-9 am, please email Mrs. Cramer at tcramer@stjohnspds.org.

Activity Descriptions

Obstacle Course – Have children follow the prescribed course

Hop Scotch
• 3s jump 2 feet together in each square
• 4s jump 1 foot in single squares, 2 feet in double squares

Hamster Cages – Students crawl across the floor in the hamster cage with classmate/volunteer steering them.

Floor Hockey – Group the students in pairs giving each child a hockey stick. Each pair will pass a hockey puck back and forth between one another.

Scooter Races – A student will sit on a scooter, ride the scooter to the cone opposite them, and run back to the cone where they started.

HiLi – Students pass the HiLi ball back and forth to each other by rolling it.

Egg and Spoon Relay – Divide each class in half. Each half will go to the cones on opposite ends of the field. Each student will have a chance to walk with the egg in the spoon across the field to the same color cone opposite them and hand the egg and spoon to the next student in line. Then they will move to the end of their line.

Batting Practice – Let each child have 2 hits from the batting tee.

Parachute – Have the students stand in a circle.

  • Wave the parachute up in the air and call the names of two children. They will switch places under the parachute as it is lifted up.
  • Throw in the beach ball and have the children bounce it around. See how long they can keep it on the parachute.
  • Have the children wave the parachute with the ball in the middle. On the count of 3 see how high they can get the ball.
  • Anything else you can think of to do with the parachute (create mushroom, walk around merry-go-round style)

Ribbon Relay – Two teams run the ribbons down the field, around the cone, and back. Hand off ribbon to the next child and sit down at the end of the line.

Hoppity Balls – Students sit on the balls, hop to the cone, and back.

Scarf Toss – Students will follow the directions of the leader. They will toss and catch scarves in different ways.

Bean Bag Toss – Students start at the cones. They pick up a bean bag, run to the hula hoop. Toss the ball in the bucket from the hula hoop and run back to the end of their line.

Soccer Shoot Out – Students will take shots on the goals with a soccer ball and keep track of how many goals they get as a class.
