Activity: Jumping Into A Feeling

Objective:

to jump landing on two feet

Materials:

1 hula hoop  for prep
~ 4 chalk of different colors  for prep

Supporting Media:

Prep:

  • Use a hula hoop and chalk to make 12 circles.  Three rows of four columns.  First row: angry, sad, tired, and happy. Second row: angry, tired, sad, and happy.  Third row: tired, angry, happy, and sad.

Instructions:

  1. Totetude Warm-up Song
  2. Show the learners the different faces drawn on the ground.  Discuss the feelings represented by each face.
  3. Have the learners line up and jump from circle to circle to make it to a different side.  They can jump into all the faces and make a snake shape, just the outside faces and make an O, or jump up one column and then down the next and make an M.
  4. Now ask the learners to line up.  One learner at a time must jump (beginning from the bottom row and off of the game from the top row) by avoiding the feeling you call out.
  5. After each learner, the educator may wish to change the feeling being called out.
  6. Once everyone has a turn or two, change the rule.  Now when you say a feeling, the learners can ONLY jump in the circle with that feeling to get off the game at the opposite end.

Extension:

  • Color code circles to match the feelings.  Red is angry, green is happy, yellow is tired, and blue is sad.
  • Allow learners to draw circles with chalk and a hula hoop.

Reflections:

  • I am able to jump landing on two feet.
  • I am able to try different ways of doing things.
  • I am able to use what I know to play a game.
