What do we do when it is pouring outside? We have inside recess. The little ones have to burn off some energy so we move the tables aside and play inside. We did an obstacle course a few days ago. Today, we decided to have two games going at the same time. The children would stomp on the catapult and send a bean bag in the air. They tried to catch the beanbag before it hit the floor.
The children were learning how to play hop scotch at the other game area. The children started quickly learning how to jump on one foot, then to two feet, and back to one foot. Some had some amazing techniques for hop scotch jumps. Both activities were helping the children development large muscles and coordination.
