Students will explore movement concepts individually through a creative problem solving approach. Students learn to copy each other’s shapes and to mirror moving shapes. Letter and numbers are explored through body shapes and props. Symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes are introduced. Moving and playing is the focus at this level. Children learn the names of movements and practice keeping a steady beat to a variety of meters. Hops and skips are introduced while familiar movements are explored in new ways dictated by weekly movement concept (on different levels, in different directions, etc.).
