• Catch the catch!

    Features of the game and its educational value. This game was developed by EI Tikheyeva. The joy that she gives to children, brings them closer to each other, diversifies everyday life in the group. Such bright, emotionally intense episodes are necessary for the kid. They are a kind of discharge, relieving stiffness, nervous tension. Particularly important is the participation in such a joint game of sluggish, passive kids. They are in a mood and self-confidence. The game is also valuable because it contains many movements that are beneficial for health and physical development.

    Description of the game and its methods. To a stick 0.5 and 0.75 m long, a lightweight, easy-to-grasp object-a soft foam rubber ball, a smart tassel, a scrap, a bag, etc., is attached to the strong cord. Before the game begins, the teacher shows this wand. Dropping and lifting it, he suggests that individual children catch the object on the cord( for example, a cloth ball).Attracting the attention of children in this way, having interested them in the very task of catching the ball, the adult gathers around them all the guys and invites them to stand in a circle. He himself becomes in the center.

    "Catch the catch!" - says the tutor and brings the ball suspended from the stick to one or the other child. When the kid tries to catch the ball, the stick rises slightly and the baby jumps up to grab it. Turning in different directions, the teacher tries to involve all children in this fun. It is permissible for an object to catch several children at the same time. After playing a little bit this way, you can slightly change the rules. So, the children take turns catching the ball, running one by one past the stick. The one who reaches the goal, becomes behind the tutor, wrapping his arms around him. Gradually formed a whole chain of children who successfully coped with the task. Taking a few steps around the room, the chain at the signal "Run into place!" Crumbles. The guys sit down in their seats, then again line up one after another, and you can start the game again.

    Tips for the educator. The game in the circle( the first variant) is lively and more fun than the chain( the second option).But it excites children very much and can cause unnecessary noise in the group. Therefore, you should alternate both versions of the game.

    Moving and active children usually suppress sluggish and timid. To prevent this, play with weak children separately, since this game is very useful for passive, insecure kids.

    Never make harsh remarks during the game, even if the children are very dishonest. Do not spoil their mood, because in this case, the goal of the game - to cheer the guys - will not be achieved. Recommended reception of alternation of two variants. Antes games helps to remove unnecessary excitement.
