Each day I am amazed at the progress students are making not just in their physical abilities but more importantly, in my opinion, their CONFIDENCE IN MOVEMENT! Children are taking risks, trying new skills, and even accepting failure when first, second, and even seventh attempts fail. By allowing children to explore movement without judgement, they are more apt to try. Just as the following image states, "kids simply have fun figuring out how their bodies work and realize on their own the best ways to achieve physical goals." If I had a dime for every time a student comes to me and says "Mrs. Torrance watch this..." I wish I could capture it all.
These videos are just a snapshot of demonstrating confidence in movement and determination to master a task.
