- DO: Before the Activity: : Ask the child to come in front of you in an open area of the room. During the Activity: Instruct child to do movements like jump, clap, turn around, etc. Then encourage the child with the help of an adult to take turns trying the same movements with his/her eyes closed. Note: It’s okay if the child does not want to close their eyes. After the Activity: Talk about how we’ll hear a story about a man named Paul who saw a bright light that made his eyes not see.
- Say: Before the Activity: “Hello, friend! It’s great to see you today! Come stand in front of me. (Pause.) We’re going to move our bodies!” During the Activity: “I’ll call out a movement, and I want you to try it. Ready, set, jump! Jump up and down. (Pause.) Great job! Ready, set, clap your hands. (Pause.) Awesome! (Continue with different motions.) Fantastic! “This time, we’ll try the same movements with our eyes closed, and I will help you. [Child’s name], stand up and hold my hand. Now close your eyes and jump up one time. (Pause.) Great job! Was it harder to jump with your eyes open or closed? (Pause.) Yes! It’s much harder to jump with your eyes closed. You did a great job of listening and moving with your eyes open and with them closed!”
After the Activity: “Today in our story, we’ll hear about a man named Paul who saw a bright light then his eyes couldn’t see! I can’t wait to hear more about Paul.”
