Kids age 3 to 5
It is my
strong believe that Capoeira classes for the ages of 3 to 5 years old - specifically - are not really about teaching them strictly Capoeira. It is about using
Capoeira as a tool to help and stimulate the kids, your kid, and their
development as a person and citizen immerse in a society.
That means the focus
is on the skills and abilities the kids are developing on each specific stage
of their lives to understand themselves and others...
Using the rich and multiple Capoeira tools I can support and
stimulate a successful development process of the children. That means to create a safe, reliable, and
each time more conscious environment for their exploration of the world around them and
specially the world inside them, body and mind. On this age, more at 3 and
less as much as they get close to 5 the boys and grills are experiencing and
exploring their inner world.
Preschool children are learning to use and test
their bodies. The preschool years are a time for learning what they can do
individually and how they
can do it. Locomotion plays a large role in motor and skill development and includes such activities
as moving the body through space, walking, running, hopping, jumping, rolling, dancing, climbing, and
leaping. Preschoolers use these activities to investigate and explore the
relationships among themselves, space, objects in space and others kids…
some more of the aspects that kids on this age are developing and that I will
be directly supporting and stimulating growth in classes with games, exercises and
increasing communication, starting with the 3 years old on:
stimulated trough the natural communications process every class and
explanation each time more complex of exercises and games)
- 3years understands
most of what is said and 75 percent of speech is understandable
in complete sentences of three to five words
pictures to objects
by doing and through the senses
concepts of "now,"
"soon," and "later"
to recognize cause-and-effect
Social and Emotional Development

helping with tasks
own limits — asks for help
