This week to work on balance, our Pre-Elementary students did a balance course, walking on a beam, using spooner boards, moving with some clip cloppers and going through some unstable obstacles.
Balance is an important building block for so many skills! In order to move safely, a child must be able to switch from balanced position to balanced position. With good balance and coordination there is less likelihood of injury, as children will react with appropriate postural responses when needed (e.g. putting hands out to protect themselves when they fall off their bike).
