OBSTACLE COURSE, MISSION POSSIBLE
Teachers shouldn't teach what they're not comfortable with. Our Gymnastic unit will give students and teachers the information and experiences they'll need to feel more comfortable with basic skills for 5 - 10 different stations. Taught with safety in mind and using step by step progressions; students become comfortable taking small risks. The personal coaching gives them the information they need to adapt skills to their individual abilities which leads to big successes. We now have Gymnastics equipment for use to augment your own but you'll need your own basic blue gym mats 12 - 14 per class. Dani Altiere Inc. is an approved vendor with EPSB and ECSD, and carries it's own liability insurance.
This unit provides instruction for age-appropriate skills for 5 - 12 stations: Rolls, Wheels, Balances and Jumps serve as the foundation for an individual routine as well as class routine set to music. Teachers are given several methods of assessment to choose from. All classes contain progressions for skills teachers can use after the residence. All lessons are geared to giving the student the skills to work independently at the station after the initial lesson. Each station has vocabulary posted in words and pictures to aid students in their practice and for teachers to use as a guide when supporting the lesson as well as safety instructions.
This unit makes a very informative P.D. workshop for teachers.
This lesson teaches the progressions to basic rolls in three directions and culminates with a forward roll and/or one of it's 5 variations. Students are encouraged to find at least one roll in each direction they can perform safely. Incline mats and octagons can be utilized to aid students with limited mobility.
This is easily the student's favorite station. Students learn safe landing procedure first, then 3 - 6 jumps. Students are tasked with static mounts and dismounts using a 12" - 24" foam platform and 6" landing pad. You can roll after you land but no flips!
This lessons teaches the progressions necessary for a basic cartwheel and offers more than 14 variations. Students are encouraged to find at least 2 they can perform safely by the end of the lesson.
If your school has the time for a 5th lesson, students can demonstrate an individual routine for their teacher; choosing a skill from each of the four stations that they are comfortable with. We'll even make it more fun by changing the stations to Mission Possible Superhero challenges!
This lesson uses lines on the floor and the benches from your gym flipped over as Balance Beams to teach 6 - 12 skills. Small regulation beams can provided as well. Students are tasked with making a routine with 2 - 6 skills. Then comes the bean bag challenge!
