Speed stacking

Apparently, speed stacking is a part of kindergarten cirriculum... I thought was a little strange until my son started talking about it, and we looked it up... He knew a lot about it, so when he got some belated, unexpected Christmas money from his dad's side of the family we ordered them... They came today and he is actually pretty good... I'm going to give it some time and let him get better, then look for competitons in the area...

Does anyone else have kids that have this in gym class? It's great for hand eye coordination, but I didn't think this would ever be something they used in gym... kind of glad they did though...

I'm not trying to promote the site, just posted the link in case someone didn't know what I was talking about...

 They've done that at my kiddos school before, it's a favorite with my kids. My son is learning cricket in gym right now which he is really enjoying.

Fun, good for hand eye coordination - sure .. counting for gym class? WOW!

 I guess it is understandable since so many schools don't allow the kids to run anymore. What else is there to do?

 Ds2 has mentioned in doing that before in gym. I see it as a nice change of pace as long as it's not a regular thing.

Our P.E. teacher uses these on days when the kids can't go outside.  It's great for motor skills. I think it's weird to have a school that doesn't let kids run.  Ummmm....They're kids.

I saw a clip about this on the Science Channel or something. I think it's kind of crazy, but not in a bad way! I think it would be good for snow days at school but I don't think it should count for regular PE class.

It was the rage several years ago but isn't nearly as popular as it once was.
