Learning can happen in many ways and with varied experiences! The Greece toddlers practiced their color identification and enhanced their gross muscle skills by using colored hoola hoops in the center’s gross motor space.
Many different colored hoola hoops were used to form rows of color on the carpet. The teachers then asked the children to hop in a hoola hoop of a particular color. They thoroughly enjoyed the hoping and used their coordination skills to jump inside the hoop and stay balanced. What a fun way to practice identifying colors, following directions, and getting exercise!
