BCBSRA - An Opportunity for All
An Opportunity for all!
Week 7: May 19, 2020
Skill of the week: Hopping and Jumping
Hopping and jumping are motor skills that are useful in many physical activities. Begin with two footed jumps on the spot
Two footed hopping for distance
Equipment of the week: Pool Noodle
A handy piece of equipment to have is a set of inexpensive foam pool noodles. They can be used for a variety of fun physical activities. You can throw them like a javelin from track and field as they are easily grasped. They can be used for making boundaries for games that require targeting practice like bowling. They make great markers for safe areas when marching running or jumping. Many of them have a hollow centre and could be threaded on to rope. Make a jump rope with a piece of foam tube to help slow it down and provide a visual clue to help with initiating a jump over the rope. One- or two-pieces work.
They can be used as a bat for striking games like softball. They can be adjusted to the height of the student with ease. Make circles by duct taping them together.
Use them to guide the stroke for golf or hockey shots by lining them up. Use them to help give a tactile guide for the marching drills from previous weeks or use them as a barrier for safety when trying throwing activities.
A great guiding tool for holding on to when hopping or jumping in games or movement skills.
Game of the week: Beans
Travel and move like different sorts of beans.
“Jumping Beans” – use two feet
Play in a safe area allowing for movement. Have them move to a hoop
or marked space to perform the movement or bean type.
