We have a large gym area in the building as well as an outdoor grass play area. We make use of the nearby park when weather permits to stimulate gross motor development though climbing, running, jumping, lifting and balance. Mrs. Larson has taken various courses in motor development and plans dynamic games to incorporate movement with other curricular outcomes in numeracy and literacy. By using such methods she stimulates brain synapses making solid curricular connections for greater retention. Students at Sherwood Park Kindergarten have many movement breaks, allowing for greater focus and enjoyment.
