First Day of Gymnastics

Johnny is finally old enough to start "Learning Through Movement!" A low level gymnastics class that focuses on teaching 2.5 -3.5 year olds to listen, follow directions and take turns while they get to do fun gymnastics and play!

As we left Johnny and I talked about listening to the teacher and being nice to the other kids. He was so excited and kept asking who his teacher was.

His teacher is Miss. Suzie and his class only has 5 kids in it. At the beginning of class they have to pick a color block that will be their color. They have to sit here and wait for their turns and go back to the block between activities.

They would have a few activities to do in order, roll down the mat, walk to and bounce on the trampoline, climb over the big mat and through the doughnut, then roll down the other mat. I was very proud of Johnny! He stayed on track and did exactly what he was suppose to do without running off or messing with any of the other super fun stuff. He stayed and listened very well until right at the end when they all sat in a circle to stretch, he sat in the circle, but didn't do the activity the teacher was doing. I think the did very well for his first class.

Then after he went and sat in his yellow spot! He did good with his color most of the time, and always went back when the teacher told him to.

He loved doing this "crayon" roll.

Then jumping on the trampoline.

and walking on the balance beam.

It was hard for me to get pictures through the glass, but he had the biggest smile here and was yelling "LOOK MOMMA!" He really enjoyed himself and I can't wait for him to go back next week.
