Apple Theme Gross Motor Learning Activity
[Source: Pre-K Pages]
I still feel like I’m melting in the heat, but this fun Apple activity may tide me over until the crisp weather arrives in Texas. It’s sure to get kids moving and learning!
I like to especially focus on one particular area when we do gross motor activities: the proprioceptive sense. While not a well-known term, this sense is essential for everyday function. Proprioception is the sensory input people get from their joints and their ligaments. It is what gives us body control and body awareness.
There are loads of ways to get proprioceptive sensory input: jumping, climbing, carrying weighted objects, getting a bear hug–these ALL help the body feel regulated and ready to learn.
