Captains Coming

Kylie, an educator at Short Street Preschool and Occasional Care Centre demonstrates a planned learning experience through a game of ‘Captains Coming’. Kylie praises this directional and action game as it is easy for the children to participate in. The game does not have too many rules, allowing children to participate equally and there is little need for additional equipment and large space.

Educators participate in the activity and guide the children’s imaginations to create a sense of excitement and drama. There is flexibility to the game, which may include adding props to enhance the experience.

The game incorporates a variety of movements and directions that build children’s awareness of their bodies to negotiate movement and space around them while building upon their FMS development.
