Book 4: BEAN BAG, RHYTHM STICK ACTIVITIES
This book is divided into 2 Parts: Part 1--Bean Bags; and Part 2--Rhythm Sticks. The book consists of 28 pages and all the activities are sequenced according to difficulty
PART 1 introduces the student to Bean Bags, which when used effectively, can reinforce perceptual-motor abilities. Being soft and flat it has definite advantages over other manipulative instruments. Throwing and catching are tasks which require considerable practice. Because of its shape, the bean bag can easily be tracked by the eye. Eye muscle training and the development of eye-hand coordination are of prime importance. Although movement is concerned with body fitness, its ultimate aim is rather to develop the child's resources as fully as possible. The Bean Bag is flexible and can easily be manipulated, thereby strengthening those finger and arm muscles used in writing. As he handles and manipulates the Bean Bag he can talk about his actions, thereby developing expressive language in relationship to his environment. The Bean Bag does not sting the hands or bounce or roll away like the illusive ball, making it ideal to use and control. Its size and shape allows it to be easily balanced on various parts of the body. Everybody needs the opportunity to practice success. Because the Bean Bag can be controlled, the child is able to toss and catch it successfully, thereby developing confidence and an ability to manage his actions. Young children tend to engage in parallel play, involved with their own private world. Bean Bags can be used individually or as a total class activity. As the total class participates, children progress from playing individually to playing in groups. Group play extends these relationships and young children learn to live with others. They learn by actively participating in these activities.
PART 2 introduces the student to Rhythm Sticks because when we consider the creative imagination of young children, and their ready response to movement tasks, it is obvious that rhythm activities should play an important role in the curriculum. Movement is as natural to children as breathing itself. We need only hear the spontaneous chants and listen to the strong beat that goes with ritual games to know that children are inherently rhythmical. Rhythm Sticks can provide a valuable addition to any physical education program regardless of grade level. The "sticks" are sometimes referred to as "lummi sticks" which were originally used in a south sea island rhythm game played by moving the "lummi sticks" through various patterns in time to a chant. Exploring movement through Rhythm Sticks does not require a standard of achievement but encourages the child's own approach to the solution of the task. One of the goals of movement exploration is the development of a positive self-concept in each child. Progressing from individual to group participation protects the children from self consciousness and precociousness and yet gives them the opportunity to participate and enjoy the full sense of rhythm. The function of the teacher is to offer the children a wide variety of movement challenges moving from general challenges to the more refined skills of rhythm, coordination, dexterity, and balance. A child's success in physical skills is basic to his total adjustment. In fact, children who are lacking in physical skills tend to withdraw socially from the group. Rhythm Sticks assure success They are easy to manipulate and contribute physically to the development of coordination and strength. Rhythm Sticks offer many opportunities for young children to exercise their growing muscles and integrate a wide variety of sensory and motor stimuli. The children themselves, when allowed to explore, quickly discover and create other movement tasks. These activities give, even the least able children, tremendous confidence and satisfaction for they soon learn to handle the "sticks" with skill and control.
