Gym Play

We are fortunate to have the gym for a half hour every day.
We always start by having a good run
then we gather in a circle to sing Ring Around the Rosie.
Then we bring out equipment.
I enjoy watching the children and families use the equipment in very fun ways.
 Build it up and knock it down is a classic but here I liked how they stacked them on top of each other so it was a double knock down.
 A slide is very popular even when you don't have a traditional one.
 Mini pylons to be stacked and unstacked.
 Making music with what is at hand.
Establishing the rules of the play.
Core work?
