I have been approached by the school in town here about coming to community days and teaching a yoyo class for roughly 1 hour to a group of 9-12 year old’s. Also I am planning on teaching a skill (so 1 hour blocks for 6 days) out at the Bible Camp in the area this summer (same age group). And I was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions for teaching this age (e.g. preferred yoyo, trick progression, keeping fingers from getting too sore, keeping kids engaged etc.)
Currently I am planning on teaching them… about yoyoing, brief history and how it works, followed by the throw, sleeper, spank the baby, walk the dog, and if they are progressing fast rock the baby, elevator.
Any insights would be appreciated.
