Physical Development - Gross Motor Skills.
April 10, 2003 - While in the downstairs playground area, Wesley ran smoothly while chasing a friend towards the balance beam, which he crossed with no problem. ( as he held his arms out to balance himself better.) Later during free play he and a group of his peers rode the tricycles in a circle as if they were racing.
May 16, 2003 - In the classroom, the Cooperating Teacher offered the children many free choice options. Wesley and his best friend, who transitioned to the pre-school room with him, decided to all participate in the activities provided. Wesley jumped around swinging his arms in the air pretending to be "Batman" Which he participated in the entire free choice time. On occasion Wesley would skip one foot in front of the other, soon the skip turned into a jog.
Recommendations - Gross Motor Skills.
Wesley's gross motor skills seem to be enriched by the opportunities that he received from the early gymboree classes.
