Hopping with two feet together is a gross motor skill most children learn around the age of three. It is an important skill, because it helps children have control over their body movements. By setting up intentional gross motor activities children are able to control their movements and have control of their own personal space. This idea inspired our movement lesson! With the younger children (Nitzanim), we first asked, "Who knows how to jump?" Then, both seperately and together, we jumped as high as we could. We then created a hula hoop obstacle course where we walked through, crawled over, and applied our jumping skills. With the older group (Prachim), we took it a big leap further. We practiced jumping from hoop to hoop on two feet, one foot, and skipping! Afterwards, we played a game of colors and numbers. What a fun outdoor movement day!
