Select one of the locomotor skills and create your own set of teaching cues.
I chose the slide, and the cues I would use would relate to scissors. By that I mean that I would use the motion of opening and closing of the scissors, and my cues would be slide open, and cut shut. This paints a visual for the students to slide open and slide closed.
Identify the specific pathways used in each of the low organized games presented in the lesson focus.
We used straight, zig zag as well as curved pathways during the activities. They are straight forward as far as what the pathway is. That being said, the straight pathways are going to move in a straight line, forward and back. This is a simple movement with easy to follow boundaries. Zig zag is simply a straight pathway with an abrupt turn in either direction. A curved pathway is obviously going to move in some sort of circular manner, this being a much more free flowing pathway.
Select a topic for a class talk and outline the questions and key points that would help you guide a class talk.
How do we show one another respect? What sort things can we do to show respect? What happens when we don’t show each other respect? What is the importance of respect? What have you done to show respect to someone?
Make a checklist of performance points to look for in one of the locomotor movements.
For the hop, you are looking to see if they are taking off from one foot and landing on that same foot. You are making sure that there is air time as well as keeping the knee pointing towards the ground. You don’t want the students to have their knees coming up. Also you want to look and ensure that they are using their arms to help propel them forward.
