    Kick High

    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!"

    Catching With a Scoop

    1. Invite your child to join you outside.  Give your child a small ball and a ladle or scoop.  Stand far enough apart.   Demonstrate how to hold the scoop in one hand and the ball in the other hand.

    2. Demonstrate the steps of throwing and catching the ball. To be successful, a child must toss the ball into the air in front of his/her body and then position the scoop to catch the ball.

      "Watch how I toss the ball straight into the air."

      "Remember to watch the ball."

      "Move your scoop so that you catch the ball in the scoop."
