Resources Included in this Bundle:
3rd Grade Set Progression Task Sheet
3rd Grade Animated GIF Example Powerpoint
Utilize these resources together with your 3rd grade students as they begin to practice the set (overhead pass). These resources differentiate your instruction based on the "levels" system. All students start at "Level 1" on their task sheet and progress from their at their own pace. 20 successful pattern completions at their current level gives them the right to move on to the next level in the progression. Display the powerpoint included in this resource with a projector in your gym to give students a visual cue as to what the pattern at each level looks like. The animated GIFs included for each level of the progression loop continuously.
The progression listed in these resources is designed to add in a little more with each level. As the teacher, emphasize to your students quality and taking your time over speed. Nothing about this progression is a race...focusing solely on getting from one level to the next while disregarding good form will not help them to perform this skill properly in a more dynamic environment.
