Taking turns is great, actually! It adds a nice social component and gives participants little breaks. Participants rest in between turns while they watch, laugh, and learn from each other. And, you’ll note that the person whose turn it is will almost always try a little harder when others watch. Any time you get a best effort is a good time. If for any reason a participant refuses a turn or an activity, honor and respect that choice, as you would any other good decision.

Instead, you may want to periodically conduct self-monitoring, or group types of tests. That is, select a few your participants can do easily as a group. Every few months have your class repeat the two or three tests. Participants can keep track of their own progress or perhaps you can keep a roll-call type of sheet for them. Remind them of their progress or milestones and the work it took on their part to achieve it. You can help them set reasonable goals. Periodically ask them to share their progress or any concerns they have.

During seated marching activities, always cue participants to keep the abdominals braced and to keep their arms on the chair arms if they need additional back support.

Cues for varying marching patterns include “In, in, out, out” (narrow feet, wide feet) and “Big, big, small, small” (big knee lifts, small knee lifts).
