Description

Spacial Dynamics, Games – Movement Education

 

Spacial Dynamics is hosted by Tami Ordoñez, an accomplished Waldorf certified and Level 1 Graduate of the Spacial Dynamics Institute teacher with years of experience and a passion and focus in movement education.  This specialty enrichment is offered in two age groups, spanning grades 1 – 5, described below.  Join us for what is likely to become your student’s favorite activity of the week!

Movement Education  Ages 6 – 8 (Grades 1-2)

 

The year in Spacial Dynamics / Games will begin with strong work in the circle. The circle represents unity; one class, one community. Once the class is formed we move into classical children’s games including hand clapping games and rhymes, jump rope individually and as a group, string games, playground games, ball games, chase games, and circle dances.

The aim of Movement Education is to:

  • Integrate early movement patterns (crossing midlines, residual  infant reflexes),
  • Gain body control through a variety of moving and stillness activities,
  • Differentiate hand and finger control and dexterity,
  • Find the right amount of touch that is appropriate for the activity (tag/chase games),
  • Begin to learn about personal space and the space of others,
  • Establish hand, eye, and foot dominance, and
  • Begin to play group games.

Movement Education – Ages 9 -12 (Grades 3-5 )

The task for this class is to learn to accept winning and losing as part of life. In games, you win some and you lose some needs to become an accepted fact. Emphasis is placed on playing by the rules, however the children are also encouraged to help set the rules for the game. We agree before play begins what the rules will be then we each abide by them and, when needed, I (as the teacher) enforce them.

This class includes more focus on skill building and building healthy bodies than the younger class while keeping the imaginative quality of play alive. Many games rely on the strength of the imaginations of the children for their success.

The aim of Movement Education at this level is to:

  • Give the children obstacles to overcome both physically and in problem solving.
  • Gain body control through a variety of gross motor and fine motor activities.
  • Continue to find the right amount of touch that is appropriate for the activity (tag games).
  • Continue to learn about personal space and the space of others.
  • Begin to develop teamwork and strategy.
  • Use imagination as the basis of play.
