Does your school have a normal Wednesday morning? Well, not Lakeville Elementary School! Kids in our school have a fun exercising routine, but it's actually a dance! The coaches make up dances, use the Internet, learn some dances at meetings or just remember dances from their childhood.
We interviewed the coaches -- David Graham, James Bailan, Jeanie Igoe and Adam McKeanzie -- and asked questions about Workout Wednesdays. Here are our questions and the coaches' answers.
How did you come up with Workout Wednesdays?Jeanie Igoe: Mrs. Feldman [principal of Lakeville School] spoke to the coaches about Workout Wednesdays at a meeting.
Do all the coaches work together?Jeanie Igoe: Yes, everyone works together.
What do you think of Workout Wednesdays?David Graham: It's a fun way to bring the gym into the classroom.
What is your favorite part of Workout Wednesdays?
David Graham: When everyone works together at the same time and makes a good effort.
Do you brainstorm ideas for dances and songs together or individually?
Adam McKeanzie: Coach Igoe usually knows dances; she used to be a dance teacher.
Coach Igoe added, "Exercising's . . . good for your mind and body."
