WEEK 4 by Sharon Beer-Korver Author
- Ensure there is enough space around 2 metres so that children won’t bump into each other or hit each other accidentally with the hula hoop.
- Pick up the hula hoop and proceed to place it around the waist first and twist it in the opposite direction to the way your hips are moving to start off with. When you get a little bit of momentum happening see how long you can go before the hula hoop falls to the ground.
- After completing this scenario successfully the children can then try their right and left arms by placing the hula hoop around their wrist to see how many times they can rotate it before it comes off.
- Finally we come to the legs they are the most challenging of all to use with a hula hoop. This body part takes not only great skill to move the circular hoop around your ankle but also you have to jump and move forward to be able to complete the full circle of the hula hoop exercise. The children will need to move forward continually to succeed in this one. Good luck!!!
Hula Hoops over the Buckets
- This activity entails using our aim correctly as well as speed and distance, children stand at the start position and holding the hula hoops at the side they try to throw so the hula hoop lands over the top of the bucket completely.
It is challenging and they will be aiming for the best score and keep trying over and over which is of course 4/4.
