Three Peas (3 year olds)
45 minute independent class
Three-year-olds are ready to go! Three Peas are gaining increased motor development, eye hand coordination and fine motor skills! Three Peas are also quickly assimilating language and are able to understand and independently follow basic instructions in gymnastics class. The Three Pea curriculum is designed to provide skill development on floor, bean bars and vault. Three Peas work on forward rolls, straddle rolls and cartwheels. They increase their balance with beam work that includes alternating forward kicks, squat holds, relevé walks and beam crawls. Three Peas develop core strength by learning to draw to a tuck from a straight hang on the bars and execute forward rolls over the bar. Their vault skills include punching the board with both feet, a squat on to a block and donkey kicks. Three Peas are introduced to instructions that incorporate spatial, sequential and directional cues. They are continuing to develop an understanding of differences in color, shape, size and color. The developing independence of Three Peas helps them participate in structured circuit sequences as they prepare for more independent activities in the Three Pea program.
