5 Playful Ways to Work on Listening & Following Directions


As coaches we know that we teach way more than gymnastics.  I’m always reminded about this whenever we have a new class of 3 year olds and they have NO IDEA what to do when I ask them to “get into a line behind me”…. most of these kids haven’t been to school, so why on earth would they know how to line up? I love that I teach kids these kind of things!

Over at Playing With Words, they’ve compiled 5 classic games that are all about listening and following to directions — which is important for kids to learn so that coaches can keep them safe and learning!
