Kick Ball with the Big Kids

It was nice of the bigger kids to let the younger ones play kickball with them. However, it became apparent that some of the littler kids were not clear on the concept. For instance, Elizabeth kicked the ball and knew she was supposed to run. She was not clear on where she was going or why. How do you tell a child, run, run and run and expect them to be clear on the concept of running to first base. Being older, you just take for granted the people know what they are supposed to do. It should be obvious.

For a three year old that has probably never watched a baseball game and has watched several soccer games, kicking the ball was not the problem. it was getting to first base. however, in due time she was on third base and ready to head to home plate. She made it home and looked like she understood the concept of touching home plate with her feet. Only time will tell.
