I love Fridays because I teach 5 Creative Movement and Martial Arts classes. It is a very active teaching day! Every Friday, I have Creative Movement with the Dolphins and Seals. The focus of Creative Movement is on developing motor skills, body awareness, and following directions in simple movement games.
The Ladybugs, Bears, and Zebras are on a 10 week rotation basis with PE, Imagination Blocks, and Martial Arts; I am starting martial arts with the Ladybugs. In addition, the Explorers and Rockets have martial arts this semester while the Wranglers, Penguins, and Mustangs will have martial arts next semester. The focus of martial arts is to develop body awareness, develop strength and coordination, and self-discipline to help students focus. We always have fun in what we are doing and learn a lot along the way. Stay tuned to see how these students grow!
