BCBSRA - An Opportunity for All
An Opportunity for all!
Week 3: April 20, 2020
Skill of the week: Running (again I know!...but a big part of successful physical activity)
This week we want to increase the speed and add continue to use the earlier movements of fast feet marching, and butt kicks we introduced.
Use the same Teaching points- light on the feet, land on the balls of the feet, keep head up don’t look at the floor (it doesn’t move!) do a time progression over the week.
Arms should swing slightly right knee up left arm forward (bent at elbow with the thumb sliding by your hip and in an upward arc.
*Continue to keep up the marching drills and other drills as well!
Game of the week: Can Game
(from Games for People with Sensory Impairments by Lauren Liebermann)
Here is a chance to use the hula hoops and bean bags together by practicing
throwing overhand and underhand to a target. The targets are empty pop
cans or similar items in a hula hoop. Help identify the target by using
sound or a light source if that works for your student.
Equipment of the week: Frisbees
Frisbees come in all sorts of sizes and material. Learning to throw a frisbee is a lifelong skill that can be used by all at any age. There are soft foam ones, large ones, some with whistles, colourful ones and easily held ones. Plastic or paper plates can be used. A frisbee can be tossed, stepped on or used as target. They can be steppingstones or large pucks for hockey. They can be used to carry items in a relay or to play frisbee golf using hula hoops as a target.
Websites of the week
These are two websites I have found useful. One is from Alberta and one from British Columbia.
The Alberta education site has some other links as well.
