Free Easter Locomotor Slide Deck
This article provides activities for locomotor skills with an Easter theme. Integrated Learning Strategies (ILS) is a learning and academic center. As a reminder, ILS is not a health care provider and none of our materials or services provide a diagnosis or treatment of a specific condition or learning challenge you may see in your child or student. If you seek a diagnosis or treatment for your child or student, please contact a trained professional who can provide an evaluation of the child.
We have a fun Easter Locomotor slide deck that encourages a child to build and sharpen their gross motor skills.
These exercises are meant for parents, therapists and educators who help students struggling with their balance, coordination, motor skills, and motor planning. Each Easter exercise encourages kids to get hopping, skipping and jumping just like the Easter bunny.
Kids can perform these exercises outside, to fun music, or with an Easter costume.
Locomotor exercises provide kids with purposeful movements that strengthen a child’s balance and coordination, spatial awareness, support of lower limbs, muscle memory and visual-spatial awareness.
All of these skills are needed for helping kids:
- Attend and focus in the classroom
- Develop emotional control
- Space letters and words on the page
- Stay in their seat in school
- Retain information
- Perform simple tasks
Purposeful movement that includes locomotor activities activates the brain for higher learning. Each movement requires kids to ponder the movements of their bodies so they can complete them automatically.
