The teachers here work closely with the Occupational Therapists to come up with some specific skills to target in the gym and this month we're working on bowling.
For our program bowling is so much more than knocking down pins. From a physical perspective; bowling allows the kiddos to develop strength, coordination, and balance all while working on ball skills that can be used in so many other games. It is a great opportunity for them to interact socially as they can invite friends to play with them and practice taking turns and waiting. And, as teachers, we always find an opportunity to talk about shapes, colours, and numbers. Who knew bowling could be so diverse?!
