Name of Activity:
Hulu Hoop Colors
Suggested Grade Level:PreK-1
Materials Needed:Hula Hoops in different colors
Description of Idea
Teacher will lay out hulu hoops all over the gym or wherever there is enough space before students arrive.
Make sure you have different colors all around the area. Tell the children to dance to the music and when the music stops, find a hulu hoop; 1 hoop per student. Once they find a hulu hoop ask them to shout out what color they are in. This is a great way for them to reinforce their colors in a fun way.
If you feel the students are able to shout out their colors really well, shout out what color you want them to find. Call out blue, students dance to closest blue hoop. Each student puts one foot into the hoop then listens for next color. They can share hoop when teacher calls the color.
Use dance moves or different locomotor skills.
Adaptations for Students with Disabilities
If you have a child who is in a wheelchair, instead try using big colored paper taped to the ground so that they are able to participate.
