Primer II- Play- Pattern Hopscotch
Run , hop, crawl ,jump, wiggle your way through a variety of fun obstacles was the activity which we had planned for our kids ” Play Pattern Hopscotch ” kept our class active and moving . We had designed a maze with different patterns, children were asked to sprint through the hurdles while hopping like a rabbit. They sprinted through the hurdles making it an easy affair. When running is combined with jumping, it is more exciting and thrilling but the major objective of playing games and participating in activities is to learn problem solving strategies, trust ,risk taking and ultimately winning not in game, but in life!
