Part 2

New skill or concept

 

Jumping 2ft-2ft

 

5 minutes

Jumping (2 feet take off, 2 feet landing) Find an own space.

When I say go, I want you to jump in the air. I want you to jump so that both feet leave the ground at the same time, and both feet land at the same time.

(be sure that they are jumping correctly) I call this a two feet to two feet jump.

[AT] Using a two feet to two feet jump, this time I want you to jump as high as you can.

(AT=Action Task: the task you give the class to get them beginning the activity you are going to teach.)

1.  What can you do with your knees to help you get your jump your highest? (Bend them to get more push for your jump)

2.  What can you do with your arms to get more height during your jump? (Throw them, or push them up as you jump)

3.  What can you do with your head to help get more height during your jump?

(Look upward, or throw it upward)

4.  What can your knees do to help soften your landing, and make it safe? (bend your knees on impact/landing)

Jump:

SWING-knees are bent and arms are back to begin jump, feet are shoulder- width apart, and arms swing forward and up toward the sky.

EXPLODE-forcefully thrust body upward and land with knees bent and feet shoulder-width apart.

SWING HIGH -knees are bent and arms are back to begin jump, feet are shoulder-width apart.

TOUCH THE SKY –arms swing forward and up toward the sky, legs forcefully thrust body upward, and student lands with knees bent and feet shoulder width apart.

Teaching Tips

Let the children practice each question before answering.

 

Transition
Get a Mat and a hurdle and set it up in an own space.  
Part 3

Practice

15 minutes

Practice jumping 2 feet to 2 feet

1.    Jump over the hurdle with your body in a wide shape, and also landing in a wide shape.

2.    Jump over the hurdle with your body in a big shape, but land in a small shape.

3.    Jump over the hurdle start in a forward direction and land the same way.

4.    Jump over the hurdle start in a sideways direction and land in the same way.

5.    Jump over the hurdle start in a forward direction, but in the air change directions to land sideways.

6.    Jump over the hurdle, start in a sideways direction but in the air change to land backwards.

7.    Jump over the hurdle, you decide which direction to start your jump and finish in the same direction.

8.    Jump over the hurdle, you decide which direction to start and finish in a different direction.

9.    Jump over the hurdle and while you are in the air pick a shape to make, but land in a tall long shape.

10. Jump over the hurdle when you land, carefully land to balance on three body parts.  Hold your balance for five seconds.

11. Jump over the hurdle and while you are in the air, make something special about your jump and then land on the mat on two feet. After you land smoothly go into a balance on two body parts.

12. See how many different jumps and balance combinations on two body parts you can think of.

13. Begin with a jump that lands on two feet.  Make sure your jump has something special about it.  From your landing, smoothly balance on two or three parts. Hold your balance for 5 seconds and then safely do a side roll and finish on two feet.

Don’t stop until I say freeze.

Teaching Tips

Let the children attempt each of the tasks a few times.
