Gymnastics in Grade 2

In grade two students have been exploring the idea of creating different movements that can be put together. Students have been gaining an understanding of how movements can be linked to make a sequence. This has been a cooperative effort with a partner and also one that requires lot’s of talking, reflection and doing before a finished product is ready to be shown to others. There has been a lot of discussion and demonstration about what makes a movement a linking movement. Once with their partner then begins the real test to see if the plan and the moves chosen fit together. We have all levels of learners in class and it is common to see a partnership of two students with varying abilities.
