There is so much to discover in movement!
Children will love this engaging circle time movement preschool activity!
Prior to the start of the session, cut out the Movement Wheel and glue onto a piece of cardboard. Insert a brad fastener into the centre of the wheel. Do not push the brad fastener all the way down; leave a little bit of room
Open the flaps of the brad fastener and tape them down. Place a paper clip over the brad fastener. If you wish, you can also make an arrow out of card stock and use that instead of a paper clip
Show them the Movement Wheel. Explain that today they are going to be playing a moving game. You are going to spin the Movement Wheel and do what the movement the spinner/arrow lands on
Spin the Movement Wheel and perform the movement. Show the students how to do the movement and then have them do it. Suggestion: Spin the wheel several times, children can add their own movements or make up other movements for other children
Use music and ask children to move and dance to the beat.
Looking and responding
How did they feel when they were moving? What are they noticing when they moved or danced?
