Teaching and Learning
Today we played a game in which the students picked an activity card out of a hoola hoop and acted it out. On the cards were animals and a sentence telling the students how they were to move around. This activity was a lot of fun for everyone. The students enjoyed doing silly movements and we all enjoyed participating. This was a good strategy to teach students balance and help them discover new ways to move. Not only was this a good activity for the students to be active it also helped them work on their reading skills. I loved watching the way students would interpret their instructions and go about their task. They have such great imaginations and they are not afraid to be silly and creative. It is rewarding to see the students have so much fun with the activities that we bring in for them.
