We learned the importance of stretching and warming up before any & all exercises. Some of the stretching we have learned is:
-& Many More!
We have learned all kinds of Gymnastics skills & movements, such as:
-Balance Beam Walking
-Leg Raise on a Balance Beam
Each week we get some great exercise during “Aerobics to Music”. During our music, we reinforce running, jumping, landing, balancing while being aware of our surroundings and each other.
When our friends do a really great job in class we get to play a game together. So far our favorite game has been “red light green light”
We end every class with a quick recap and of course we each get the very important Head To Toe stamp!
This Fall we’re focusing on core Soccer skills. We’re happy to have some familiar faces from last session, and we welcome our new students as well!
Skills we’ve covered
- Agility Ladder
Coordinated movements help the students gain a sense of structure and teamwork. We introduced this with choreographed movements to music. During one part of the song, the children wave their hands above their heads back and forth. For the next part of the song, they move their arms to each side of their body. These simple motions are the building blocks for more complex movements and combinations.
- Agility drills
- Crawl across the floor
- Jump to music
Fun Home Activity – play freeze dance with your child. They really love this one! Use the video below as a guide. Dance, hop, skip, twirl–all with freezes in between when you stop the music. For their freestyle dance, ask them to wave hands in the air, and then side to side.
