Students in Primary participated in a tee-ball unit this month. Students learned how to run bases, hold a wiffle bat, and throw and catch a ball. Throwing and catching is a lifelong skill. When children practice ball skills, they will notice their skills improving. This helps children understand they can learn and get better at something if they put in the time and the practice. Tee-ball helps children listen as a group, get along with peers, learn how to take turns, and perform independently when needed. The benefits of tee-ball include: improved balance, coordination, strength and stamina, motor skill development, social skills development, better hand-eye coordination, improved self confidence, and sportsmanship.
