Jumping is a great ice breaker activity for children to begin a class especially when some are reluctant to participate. For a toddler getting both feet off the ground is no easy task initially but as time passes their gross motor skills become stronger and it becomes easier to control their bodily movements.
The class of ELP 2 B had a brain tickling gross motor activity where children had to jump on footprints which were placed facing different directions. It was a skill game where decision making, visual discrimination and logic played a vital role. Each time they jumped they had to twist and turn their petite body to fit into the foot print groove.
A stimulating and refreshing way to start a day !
