Control and Coordination of Movement
Silence Game



What is it?

* This is a game we play with the children to encourage the ability to be silent when needed. The guide can facilitate this game through gathering a group of children, having them sit quietly and whispering each child's name until they are all gathered around her. 
* Another way to play this game when all the children are very familiar with it, is for the guide to write silence on the chalkboard. As children notice the sign, they begin to let other children know, until the whole class is quite. At this point the guide may choose to do many things: call the children's names quietly (as previously), sit quietly for a moment before inviting the children to return to their work, recite a poem, etc...


Why do we do it?

* Coordination and refinement of movements of the whole body
* Development of the will
* Social cohesion

How to help at home?

* Spend some quite time with your child at home. If you meditate, invite your child to join you for some of that time.
