Why use gross motor dice?
Gross motor or brain breaks are something you can do in a short amount of time and something simple and easy to do.
I use the gross motor dice because it makes the movements random or having a fun chance of getting your favorite movement. Plus you can work in loads of different movements and make it seem like fun.
The gross motor dice have two parts the movements and the speed dice. You can use either or both together.
Your movements are: running, throw the football, jumping, cheering, kicking, and flying like a football.
And the speeds are normal, slow and fast.
Things to use with the Football Gross Motor Dice
There are some of the items that I’m used with the gross motor dice. All are easy to find on Amazon.
How to use the Football Gross Motor Dice Inserts
I use the cube dice instead of the folding dice because they are easy to put in and yes kids can do this. The papers last a lot longer. You can switch them out and mix up gross motor dice sets.
Plus you can just use the cards as football movement cards if you want!
Another reason that I like the cube dice for the dice is that we can throw them. And yes they get thrown around a lot.
How to use the Football Gross Motor Dice
Before starting any of the gross motor dice I always review the movements. This allows for figuring spacing needed and making sure kids are doing the movements right. Plus you can always see what they think the movements are. They always have great ideas.
The Football Movements
Running with Football You can have them run in place if space is limited or have them run around in a room.
Throw the Football You can have them pretend to throw the football. You can have them do big throws and small throws.
Jumping & Cheering You can have them jump up in the air like a cheerleader. I like to have them change how they are jumping to see what they do.
Cheering with Arms You have them wave their arms around cheering on the football players.
Kicking a Fieldgoal You have them pretend to kick a field goal. I would make sure there is space to do this. And make sure they kick with both legs.
Flying like a Football You have them pretend to be a football and have them lay on the ground with their arms and legs off the ground life they are flying. It is fun to see how long they can hold it.
After they have the movements down you can add speed and number of times. You can find the number dice here. This is a great way to change the dynatics of the movements.
