    Do all balls roll? 

    Balls Bouncing

    *Gather any round(circular) and/or ball shaped item in your home. Take them outside (weather permitting).  See which items can roll.  Why do they roll? (are they filled with air, are they flat or a sphere, are they heavy or light, are they hard or squisy?) Will a pancake roll?

     

     Ball Toss

    Rolling Ball

     

    *Using any larger sized ball, sit on the floor across from your child, legs open.  Roll the ball back and forth, slowly at first, then increasing speed as your child becomes comfortable with trapping the ball and rolling it back.  After some practice, try counting aloud how many times you can get the ball back and forth.  Can you get to 20 passes?  If the ball can bounce, try standing and bouncing the ball back and forth!

    Kicking a ball

    1. Invite the children to join you outside to practice kicking a ball. A large grassy area is ideal for this activity. Talk about safety rules to follow when kicking a ball near others.

      "We'll take turns kicking this ball up into the air, but first we always check to make sure there are no people nearby who could get hit with the ball."

    2. Demonstrate how to kick the ball, and talk through each step as you complete it.

      "Now that I've looked around to make sure it's safe, I'll run up and kick the ball. I'm going to keep my foot under the ball when I kick."

    3. Tell the child to place the ball on the ground and take at least four large steps back. It is helpful for the child to begin standing 8 feet to 10 feet away in order to get a running start toward the ball. Have the child move quickly up to the ball and place the nonkicking foot next to the ball. Help him or her swing the kicking leg forward so the foot hits the ball below its center. A child who has difficulty getting the ball into the air is not hitting the ball below the center. Encourage the child to kick the ball as hard as possible.

      "Great job! The ball went higher than your body!"
