“Sport Music and Fun for the very young”
“Teddy Tennis is a curriculum based sports education programme that inspires children aged 2½ to 6 years to get active and learn to play tennis. It works by combining Music, Pictures and Teddy Bear Characters into a totally interactive learning adventure that young children love”.
What makes Teddy Tennis so special is that it is taught using the Visual Auditory Kinesthetic (VAK) learning style. Applying the VAK multi-sensory learning approach to teaching has proved to be very effective, particularly for young children and works brilliantly in Teddy Tennis lessons: they see it, they hear it, they do it and they get it!
- Visual learning involves the use of seen or observed things, including pictures, demonstrations and videos. Every Teddy Tennis lesson uses inspiration pictures of teddy bear characters playing Teddy Tennis…. and of course every Teddy Tennis coach demonstrates how things should be done correctly.
- Auditory learning involves the transfer of information through listening: to the spoken word, and of music and sounds. Every Teddy Tennis lesson involves music that was specifically written by Teddy Tennis and provides the correct rhythm and timing for doing each game or exercise; the words of the music tell the children what to do.
- Kinesthetic learning involves physical participation – doing, practical hands on experiences, and taking part in coordinated movement, racket and hand to eye skills. Every Teddy Tennis lesson is fully interactive and involves having a lot of FUN.
Teddy Tennis covers all of the bases and the results are quite startling… just read our parents testimonials.
P.S. The biggest benefit Teddy Tennis delivers to children who play Teddy Tennis is CONFIDENCE; this is derived by successfully learning the basic skills needed to play tennis.
Once a child has confidence, then the world will be their oyster.
