Name of the Game:
Mama Bird Has Lost Her Eggs
Early Stage 1
- Choose 5 children to hold the 5 eggs (balls) and the rest of the students go within a square space which they must not leave.- Children in the square must run around, whilst the other 5 come in and place the eggs down somewhere and then step backout.- Children cannot touch the eggs and must remain running until the teacher yells out “My eggs”.- Children that catch the eggs, then get to place the eggs in on the next round.
Why is this game important for this stage?
-At this age children need to start to learn how to participate with other children and big groups, as well as learning to take ondifferent parts within an activity.-Children can work on making their running skills much better.-They will learn to understand special awareness by following rules and acknowledging what space they have to move aroundas well as what is around them.
