MUSIC: I use Sweet Georgia Brown
Balls: 6" rubber - one for each student
Bounce ball with right hand. This could be a set number or a do as many
as you can thing. Repeat level #1 with left hand
Bounce ball with alternate hands. (left,right,left,right)
Bounce the ball ONCE with both hands and catch it on its return.
Levels can go on and on. Let your imagination do the work.
Have the students do levels as they do their locomotor skills, sitting,
I found this to be challenging and fun for grades K-3rd.
BOUNCING THE BALL OFF THE WALLS
GOING THRU YOUR LEGS
LETTING THE BALL BOUNCE 3 OR 4 TIMES BEFORE THE CATCH
With grades 5th - 8th use a basketball or two basketballs
try two different balls
Challenge the group.
And always reinforce the POSITIVE STUFF
