Twist and Turn is a game for outside play
This activity was suggested from education.com summer activity lesson plan. It is a two part activity, which is cool.
Part 1: you draw with chalk.
This ended up being great for review. I asked the kids to draw a variety of shapes and symbols, they offered up some ideas too.
Part 2: Gross motor skills practice
Next I had them pick a number 1-10
I did this for number practice. I also didn't know what shape to choose or what action to have them do. I had a small list of things but no order or shape to put with the action. This was very spur of the moment. I had them pick a number so I could count out the shapes then count down my list that matched the number they picked.
I had them do random things. Such as spin in circles, jumping jacks, touch the shape, skip, hop on one foot, sing the ABC's, and other simple activities.
Doll Dragon did make up a few of her own activities and suggested activities for Little Dragon to complete as well.
