Introductory Gymnastics and Movement to Music Lesson Plan for Kindergarten
My lesson objectives and learning experiences for this lesson are below. The lesson went very well and worked toward tapping into the students' creativity and imagination.
A. To introduce central idea and lines of inquiry(see previous blog for CI & LOI)
B. To discuss movement patterns
C. To identify specific movement patterns in a Cirque Du Soleil video clip
D. To explore imaginary movements based on what the wind looks and sounds like.
Have the students create a 3-5 wind movement pattern that can be repeated to the song “The Wind”.
Although this lesson went very well, I probably would have had them move around like the wind without the scarves first then had them move with the scarves afterward. Doing so would have gotten them more use to the limited space that they had.
Please see video below of when they were moving around with the scarves.
