FRIDAY's MINUTE OF MOVEMENT...…….. FUN WITH STEPPING BACK!!!!!
How? Have your child/children walk “backwards” up or down stairs. Make sure they hold on to the hand rail and look straight ahead while walking.
Why? “Walking stairs backward develops whole body coordination moving in a posterior plane, and further enhances motor planning and depth perception.” The Maze Handbook by Candace S. Meyer, M.S.
This activity helps children learn to do things like buttoning a coat or walking backwards without looking.
The Maze Handbook is available for checkout at all of Dorchester District 2 Parent & Family Engagement Centers!
HAVE FUN WITH STEPPING BACKWARDS FOR HEALTH AND MIND!!!
Hello Friends!!! Join me today at 12:30 for some preschool story time fun, Fun, FUN!!!!!

How? Choose a path along a wall for your children to have fun sliding along! Have your child/children get as close to the wall as possible without touching the wall. Side-step keeping their eyes, face and feet parallel to the wall. Step to the side then slide the other foot along until it reaches the lead foot. Halfway along your designated path, have your child/children turn 180 degrees and finish the remainder of the path with the other leg.

Why? Sliding... "develops laterality, directionality and spatial awareness in the brain/body in an integrative whole-body movement” The Maze Handbook by Candace S. Meyer, M.S.
This activity also helps with recognition of right from left.

The Maze Handbook is available for checkout at all of Dorchester District 2 Parent & Family Engagement Centers!

FRIDAY's MINUTE OF MOVEMENT...…….. FUN WITH ROLLING!!!!!

How? Children roll on a mat or soft surface on the floor with their legs straight while following your directions.
Why? “Rolling provides vestibular stimulation to the brain and builds core strength” The Maze Handbook by Candace S. Meyer, M.S.
Simply ROLLING around is such a fun activity for children and can improve skills such as balance, thinking, strength and coordination!
The Maze Handbook is available for checkout at all of Dorchester District 2 Parent & Family Engagement Centers!

FRIDAY's MINUTE OF MOVEMENT...…….. FUN WITH CLIMBING!!!!!

How? Place items for children to climb over while standing. Age appropriate Items such as boxes, pillows or cushions all make a great path climbing paths! Have feet go up and over each item.

Why? “Stepping over objects develops depth perception while increasing eye-foot coordination and balance” The Maze Handbook by Candace S. Meyer, M.S.

Climbing at a young age is an excellent way to develop motor skills such as balance, grip and grasp. These skills will follow children to the classroom as they begin to hold a pencil and write!

FRIDAY's MINUTE OF MOVEMENT...…….. FUN WITH CRAWLING!!!!!

How? Have fun with crawling on hands and knees for a distance appropriate for your child’s age. Make sure the eyes follow the lead of the hands.

Why? “Crawling develops cross-lateral hand and leg coordination, increases convergence of eyes, and establishes timing in the brain.” The Maze Handbook by Candace S. Meyer, M.S.

Crawling helps organize thoughts because it uses both hemispheres of the brain!

The Maze Handbook is available for checkout at all of Dorchester District 2 Parent & Family Engagement Centers!

Time-Out Thursday
Roar like a Lion
Did you know? Deep breathing can increase calm or help to bring calm into the situation. When you combine deep breathing with a way to release an emotion it can help children get rid of the feeling. Using different animals to show different emotions may help your child express how they are feeling. If coupled with the deep breathing it can help ease the stress or calm some of the excitement. Breathe in, Breath out and enjoy your time-out.
