Warm-up:

    Warm-up like an athlete or a football player, suddenly running in place and stopping

Purpose of Activity:

    To reinforce motor skills

Cues:

      Hop

      • Hopping is very similar to jumping, but it is done on ONE foot only
      • Push off with toes and bend your knee to lift off into the air
      • Land softly on your toes and bend your knee and hips when landing
      • Other leg is usually bent with foot held behind you
      • Put arms out to the side to keep balance
      • Hopping can be done in the same place (inside a hula hoop) or you can move throughout an area (from hoop to hoop)
         
        HOP

      Jump

      • Bend knees and hips
      • Swing arms hard
      • Push off the ground with the balls of feet
      • Students can jump in the same place (on a trampoline or a float board) or can move throughout an area (jumping from float board to float board)
         
        JUMP

      Skip

      • Take a step forward on one foot and then perform a hop on same foot
      • Step forward on other foot, perform a hop (like you did on first foot)
      • Keep alternating feet doing this same procedure
      • Arms are out to the side for balance
      • A skip has an uneven rhythm
         
        SKIP

      Balance

      • Students stretch their hands in both directions while standing on bench
      • Then they carry dishes and start moving across the benches
         
        BALANCE

      Landing

      • Take-off from one foot (from the bench) and land on the opposite foot
      • Extend arms, legs, and toes while in the air
      • Try to leap a long ways, as that forces the body to extend
      • Bend knee and hip for cushioned landing (on the floor mats)
         
        LANDING

      Run

      • Take a step forward on one foot and then take a step forward with the other foot, so that the second foot passes the first one
      • Continue in this manner, alternating forward passing feet, but go faster and add a slight hop to your steps
      • Place arms out to the side
         
        RUN

      Walk

      • Take a step forward on one foot and then take a step forward with the other foot, so that the second foot passes the first one
      • Take a step forward with the first foot, so that the first foot passes the second one
      • Continue in this manner, alternating forward passing feet
      • Now walk through a path of hula hoops (see photo) without stepping on them
         
        WALK
