The purpose of these Locomotor Posters is to connect Physical Literacy with Literacy. They can be printed and hung in the gym. Students learn through rhythm and rhyme.
I use a tambourine to keep the beat as I rhythmically say the poem
My tambourine has a head on it so I can have a variety of sounds. Once students learn the beats you can control the class doing locomotors with just the tambourine!
Jump, Hop & Leap-even loud beat, hitting the head of tambourine. While the poem is read they do a series of leaps. (If I am not repeating the poem and I am just doing the beat I will call out jump or hop. Sometimes I will do the beat and let the student decide. For leap I do a run beat and then one loud leap beat: run-run-run-run-LEAP, run-run-run-run-run-LEAP.)
