Learning How To Catch
For the month of February, the Jr. K – Kindergarten children are learning how to catch. Catching is the receiving and controlling of an object by the body or its parts.
Cues for Catching:
Low Level Catch:
- Thumbs in for catch above waist
High Level Catch:
- Thumbs out for catch at or below the waist
We encourage you to help your child practice the skill of catching by participating with your children in activities such as football, basketball, and just tossing a ball back and forth in the backyard.
