Five Peas are ready to test their skills! Five-year olds have reached physical and developmental milestones that allow them to progress rapidly. With longer limbs, more refined coordination, and stronger language skills, the Five Pea can run faster, climb higher and hold longer.
Five Peas are refining their technique with focus and form and lines. The Five Pea curriculum includes bridges, handstands, L-handstands and stronger executions of rolls. The Five Pea cartwheel demonstrates proper sequencing and a more refined lunge finish. Five Peas can hold their relevés and arabesques on beam and are developing the core strength needed to hold tucks, straddles and pikes on the bars. Five Peas are mastering the vault runway with sequenced runs. They are punching the board with two feet and their vaults now include stretch jumps, squats onto the block and forward rolls.
Oh, to be five! What an important year this is! The Five Pea curriculum capitalizes on the amazing, compounding cognitive and social development of the Five Pea. Our educational gymnastics curriculum incorporates 20-25 gymnastics terms, independent counting, group presentation and recognition of the alphabet, interpretation of music, recognition of timing and counts in music, and increased awareness of spatial relationships.
Five Peas are increasingly capable of predicting and successfully completing known circuits and are given opportunities to independently navigate an active learning circuit. Five Peas love showing off and are encouraged to try new skills, improve their form and do it again. The Five Pea curriculum continues to focus on helping the five-year old develop friendships, demonstrate good manners, share experiences and listen to each other. Five Peas gain experience, waiting their turn, encouraging classmates, and respecting the teacher. Every minute in the Five Pea classroom is balanced with important physical activity, social interaction and life learning! Our program objectives for Five Peas include developing the ability to form meaningful friendships and feeling joy and confidence in learning.
The Blending of Two Curriculum-Rich Preschool Gymnastics Programs!
We are very excited to now announce the blending of our Tumblebug Program with the Sweet Peas Program, an educational gymnastics program which shares our philosophy and culture of purposeful movement steeped in Fun and exploration. Gym Magic is the first gym in New Mexico to offer this stellar educational gymnastics program which has received rave reviews nationally and internationally.
Let us introduce you to Sweet Peas! Each year (One Pea, Two Peas and so on) has a dedicated curriculum filled with age appropriate activities that promote coordination, balance, core strength, bilateral awareness and flexibility - very similar to our Tumblebug Program.
Other Sweet Pea Classes
Carefully designed for babies learning to sit and crawl. Wee Peas provides our littlest students with active learning activities that focus on whole baby development. Wee Peas are given opportunities to move, reach and grasp in a baby safe environment that is rich with color, sound and tactile experiences. Wee Peas learn to recognize their name in class and react to identifying themselves to the teacher.
One Peas are ready to move! With their newly developing upright mobility (and sometimes a mix of both eagerness and hesitation), One Peas are beginning to understand words and ideas. The active learning goals of One Peas promote neural development in the amazing one year old brain. The One Peas' curriculum is designed to provide enriching activities in a safe and fun environment. One Peas learn self awareness and physical adaptation through developmentally appropriate gymnastics activities such as stepping, rolling, balancing, sliding and swinging.
Two year olds are amazing! Two Peas are gaining independence! The Two Peas program is designed to capitalize on the rapidly improving physical, cognitive and language development of two year olds. Two Peas provides gross motor skill development with whole body activities in developmentally appropriate circuits. Two Peas learn to run with developing synchronization; step, hold and balance on alternate feet; roll forward, sideways and backwards on a wedge with a spot...
