Bridge Academy

Psalm 32:8

Creative Movement & Games 

Description: This class will get 1st-3rd grade students moving while building friendships and learning to work as a team.  Students will practice important movement and coordination skills that focus on both large and small motor skills, including dynamic activities such as running, jumping, obstacle courses, team-based games, and exercises to improve fitness. The class will also practice controlling body movement through static activities requiring balance and muscle awareness, such as “freeze” or “statue” games and exercises that require holding a pose for a period of time. The games and activities in this class will allow students to practice following directions and participating as part of a team. A perfect afternoon class for younger students, this class will be fun, exciting, and active!
