In the primary grades, the focus has continued on eye-hand coordination. This past week students were paired and given the task of tossing and catching a bean bag with one another.
The manipulative skill of tossing and catching was used as a means for learning to work with another person and being able to reinforce eye-hand coordination. Children worked at low and high levels to vary the use of these skills.
These experiences enhance the psychomotor and social/affective skills in children giving them opportunities to look up, look out for others, and toss themselves to new heights!
