Mark the milk caps with numbers. (Number 5 of the caps #1, another 5 caps #2, another 5 #3 and so on).
Form rows using the containers at one end of the gym. Each row to have 5 containers. The number of rows and containers used will vary on the number of players. For example if you have 6 rows with 5 containers in each row you will need 30 containers.
Randomly place a numbered milk cap under each container being used, not sorting by row.
How to Play:
Form rows of 3 to 4 players at one end of the gym with the rows of containers at the other half of the gym
If milk caps are numbered up to 6 and have 6 rows of players. If the milk caps are numbered up to 8 then have 8 rows of students.
Assign each row of students a number.
One player per row will then run to any container in any row, look at the milk cap under the container to see if the milk cap has their assigned number on it. If it does than the player takes the milk cap and places it in front of their row. If that milk cap does not have the assigned number than they place it back under the container for the next player who may look under it.
You can speed up play by having players turn over the container once the milk cap has been found.
The first team with all of their milk caps wins.
To quickly restart another round have the players turn over all of the containers to see where milk caps are remaining. Then have one player per row run out to place the milk cap found in the previous round under an empty container and turn all the containers back over to hide the milk caps. Be sure to assign each group a new number to seek out.
Nicky’s favourite part of dance class? The performance! He’s a true showman, relishing the chance to show off all the new skills he’s learned. “It’s definitely the highlight for him,” explains Scott.
Nicky is an enthusiastic 10-year-old with Down syndrome, who loves to express himself through movement. The first time Nicky tried his new Wii Dance system, his passion became even clearer and his parents became determined to support him exploring his love of dance.
Propeller Dance prides themselves on offering opportunities for all children and was the perfect fit for Nicky. With live music for each and every class, he learned the power of creative movement and expression, including the use of space, time, and composition. And with dancers of all abilities in the same class, the kids in the program must continuously work together, adapt, and learn from one another. The result? A caring and understanding environment where Nicky can thrive and be himself.
For four years, Nicky has been learning new ways to be creative, has developing innovative dance moves, and enjoying a new outlet for expressing himself. And just as important, he’s made tons of new friends who he gets to connect with every week.
On top of being active and having tons of fun, Nicky’s family has seen many positive changes in other areas of his life. His ability to focus and take instructions have improved and he's learned how to take turns. As a seasoned dance expert, Nicky has become a leader in his class - Bravo!
