Description: The students will practice ROLLING by demonstrating their ability to roll a huge object while having them listen for the instructor’s signal. This will challenge the students physically and mentally by requiring them to quickly stop a fast-moving object.
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can say words that sound like “go”, like “gopher” or “go-kart”, or words that sound like “stop”, like “pop”, in order to keep the students engaged and enhance their auditory processing.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The students must be able to follow the auditory cue of the instructor saying “go” and “stop” as quickly as they can, without losing control of their pad.
