P.E. & Health
Title – Hocus Pocus!
By – Ashleigh Pecherski
Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education
Grade Level – Pre-K
Divide students into two lines. Have them line up on one side of the gym where there is a cauldron (large bucket) between the lines. Have the first person in each line (with tongs, which are their magic wands) run over to the opposite side of the gym where scarves are scattered on the ground. The students pick up a scarf with the tongs and run back over to the cauldron, drop the scarf in and give the next student in line the tongs. When all students have placed a scarf in the cauldron, they all yell Hocus Pocus! This will help the students work on their fine motor skills. To make any modifications you could also have them hop, skip, etc. to the cauldron.
