5/1/2014: PE

Our balance courses have grown in complexity and difficulty as we now walk beams sideways and on our hands and feet as well as do twist jumps and leaps from the stepping stones. Log rolls and egg rolls will introduce us to new kinds of balance as we use all parts of our bodies to move through space. We have learned to shift our weight from our feet to our hands through donkey kicks, rabbit hops, and monkey hops to prepare and strengthen our bodies for somersaults. Jumping and moving in balance will be our focus towards the end of the year.
