Shamrock Hop

Gross motor (physical) skills are those which require whole body movement and which involve the large (core stabilizing) muscles of the body to perform everyday functions, such as standing, walking, running, and sitting upright.

It also includes eye-hand coordination skills such as ball skills (throwing, catching, kicking).

As part of our shamrock theme, we decided to practice our own gross motor skills by jumping during this fun shamrock game!

Using the large muscles in their legs, students hopped from one chalk-made shamrock to the next!
