Letter S Gross Motor Activities - Enchanted Homeschooling Mom

With winter upon us here we are working hard to do gross motor. I thought it would be fun to show you a letter activity for gross motor. We picked “S” for snowflakes! We have seen lots of snow.

What you need for these activities: scotch tape, snowflake cut outs, hula hoop, and scooter board with handles.

First we did some S gross motor activities. These are animals or actions that start with the letter “S”.

Snake: crawling on their stomach.

We took the scooter board with handles to our letter S. They sat on the board and used their legs to move them around forward and then backwards, laid on stomach and pushed with their feet and repeated with pulling forward with their arms.

The last thing we did was the hula hoop walking on the letter. They did one time of rolling the hula hoop on the letter and the next time through was stepping through the hula hoop walking on the letter.
