• Pre K/K

  • Balls

Development Goal

To develop students’ concentration, cooperation and eye-hand coordination skills.

Before You Start

  • Have the group sit or stand in a circle
  • Practice 5 jumping jacks (for younger ages)
  • Practice passing the ball around the circle (for younger ages)
  • Practice singing one round of the song

Set Up

Decide on a space that is big enough for the entire class to form a circle.

How to Play

  • Start passing the ball around the circle while singing the wonderball song:
    • The Song:

The wonderball goes around and around,
to pass it quickly you are bound,
if you’re the one to hold it last,
you will owe 5 jumping jacks,
you are it!

  • The child who is holding the ball when the song ends gets up and does 5 jumping jacks in the middle of the circle.
  • Then pick the child who is sitting the quietest to start the next round.
  • You should move around the circle with the ball to make sure it gets around, a lot of kids will try to hold the ball so they will be last or won’t be able to hold the ball
