Description of Idea
Children are in scattered formation facing the teacher. The teacher says in loud voice, "I see." The children answer in chorus, "What do you see?" The teacher responds, "I see all students moving in any direction without touching anyone."
Children respond to this signal until the teacher again says, "I see...." The children stop and answer, "What do you see?" The teacher responds with a new challenge-locomotor skills, bend and stretch, animal movements, and/or twisting actions.
Make sure you have the kids practice saying "What do you see" in chorus. It is a lot more fun for you the teacher and the kids.
