These movement cards were a great addition to our construction week.
They were very helpful for in-between lessons or for short breaks to get out spurts of energy.
This year I have 3 boys in preschool so energy levels are high. And not just can't sit still energy but intense sometimes rough energy. Giving the boys an activity to a theme they enjoy helped tame the wildness.
I found the cards on a great blog called Royal Baloo
The first day we went over the cards together.
Push like a bulldozer
The boys came up with some great interpretations for the movements.
Stretch like a crane
I did set the cards out for Little Dragon to pick out himself and perform. His favorite was 'tip like a dump truck' because he pretended to bury me in dirt before he picked 'dig like a backhoe' to get me out.
We have used these cards everyday this week and they are going to be a great addition to our busy bag collection!
