Some teachers are hesitant to engage students in large movements in the classroom. But it maybe one of the best activities you can do with children if they seem restless before or after a lesson.
It is encouraged that teachers should explore fun activities in the classroom to help kids improve their motor skills.
Working with a parachute is an eye-hand coordination activity. It is a fun a activity that will help kids improve their coordination.
This needs to be a guided activity and the students must understand that there are rules to be followed when doing this activity in the classroom. But the overall body movement's dual role of calming and alerting body systems works wonders.
This activity is also great for children to participate in before or after an activity where they've had to sit for a length of time.
Balloons are also great tool to use because when children have difficulty throwing, catching or visually tracking objects, the balloon will float longer than a ball when tossed and children have a slightly longer processing time to react .
Almost everything students do in the classroom involves vision and motor skill. Examples are cutting, writing, copying from the board, putting a puzzle together, gluing, and even turning pages in a book.
