October 22nd was a big day for some children of Dawn and Dusk as we channeled our inner extreme warriors! As the day begun, the kids arrived one by one, each completely ecstatic to begin their warrior training. The educators in charge ensured that each station would be an essential part of training.
Station one tested the children's strength, kids were to swing across the gym on a rope and land in their coolest ninja poses!
Station two tested their agility and allowed them to showcase their own secret ninja moves by running over an obstacle course made out of mats. Our warriors in training were to run over mat ramps and show us their best in air tricks and kicks!
Station three looked at the kids stealth and sneakiness abilities by participating in a red light, green light styled game.
Station four was a slip and slide with a crash mat. Educators encouraged kids to use this station in a creative way by asking them to use their ninja minds to work together to created their own moves.
As the day went on, ninja kicks were being seen left and right, and the gym was booming with screams of excitement. While doing warrior training the kids were eager to show the educators their progress often yelling "look at this kick!!" One child even dedicated his morning to perfecting his secret ninja moves and was so ecstatic to show everyone, "watch me swing from this rope and jump into my secret ninja pose!"
After a big morning of training, our warriors were hungry! Scattering to get their lunch kits and have their snacks, the kids were asking what the afternoon would look like. Educators then asked the kids if they wanted to create their own extreme ninja warrior attire. When educators mentioned this the children eagerly wolfed down their snacks and ran to make their swords, headbands and any other ninja accessory their creative minds could come up with!
Once our warriors were full and had all their ninja attire, they were back in action swinging from ropes and flying across the gym while their laughs and screams filled the school with joy. The kids of Extreme Warrior kept telling educators how good of a day they were having, which is always the goal for Dawn and Dusk educators. I can officially say the children have passed their warrior training and are ready to become true ninja warriors!!
