We will work with our district partners to determine when our school campus will resume programming onsite. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates on our Facebook page and here at ACCEL'S COVID-19 page as well.

At Home Chores that Target Gross Motor Skills

Getting your child to participate in gross motor activities at home doesn’t have to take a lot of creativity or even a lot of items to complete the task. Having your child help with every day activities can help target their overall strength, balance, and coordination while working on life skills. Below are a few ways to get your child to participate in chores at home to work on their gross motor skills!

Ball Skills: Kicking

Kicking a ball is a great skill to work on with your child at home! It requires single leg balance, strength, and coordination. Below are a few ways to work on this skill while at home.

At Home Exercise Cards

Having your student complete exercises at home doesn’t have to be boring! Below are some exercise cards that you can print off and have your student help cut out. You can help your student shuffle up the cards and then select one card at a time and do the exercise on the card.
