January Youngest Gymnasts Overview
Happy Hump Day! This post highlights the skills and drills Ms. J's youngest gymnasts practiced throughout January.
Let’s hop into what our Jumping beans have been up to this month! Ms. J’s Jumping Bean & Me class is available for toddlers 18-36 months.
In January, our instructors focused on the progress of 3 P bar hangs: Koala bar hang, Bat hang, and Basket hang. Like bats, the gymnasts hung upside down; hands together, toes to the outside of their hands, and staying in a straddle. Like a woven basket, hands were apart and toes weaved in-between the hands in a pike position.
On the beam, Ms. J’s gymnasts let their inner animals out: Flamingoes, Cranes, and Bunnies, oh my! On the trampoline, the jumping beans jumped to kersplat (seat drop) and doggy (drop).
During circle time, "Old McDonald" and "Tick Tock" were the songs of this week and last. Ribbons and rounds of the hide & seek game with scarves tied up each lesson.
Stay tuned for our overview of our pre-schoolers' classes next week!
HOP to see you next time,
