Gross motor activities are an essential component to any preschool curriculum.
These activities build skills that aid the development of young children, and prepare them for elementary school.
Because your little ones are active and often on-the-go, it is important that they learn how to control their bodies.
Comfort with gross motor skills means that your child is aware of his personal space.
By controlling his body, he can respect other peoples’ personal space as well. For this activity, we used rings to play a fun tossing game.
Students were first shown a large caterpillar on a stand. They were then given three rings. Then they were instructed to toss the rings onto the caterpillar!
