State Standard: 1, 3
|Equipment: 3 Noodles for tagging and Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Music (optional)||Grade: K-2|
|Purpose of Event: Chasing, Dodging, Locomotor skills, moving in personal and general space|
|Time: 15-20 minutes|
Give 3 students noodles, they will be “elf” taggers. When a student gets tagged they freeze and put their thumbs on their head and spread their fingers out like antlers. In order to be unfrozen free runners approach the frozen players from the Front and give the frozen (Reindeer) player a high “ten” and rejoin the activity.I play Music while they move using different locomotor/movement skills. When the music stops (30-45 seconds) I switch taggers. I usually focus on a winter theme, more than “Christmas”. And talk briefly about animals that make us think of winter, penguins, polar bears, reindeer, etc.
|Concerns: Move in general space safely, tag softly|
