SKATEBOARD WORKSHOP

Montesori Greenhouse School

Our skateboard workshop is a part of our after school enrichment program. Our worksshop is designed to teach the kids safety first as we introduce safety gear how it works and why it is necessary to always gear up before skateboarding. Our workshop gives the kids a broader idea of how the skateboard works before they begin to skateboard. our second part of the workshop helps the children build fine motor skills as the kids learn how to take apart their own skateboards as well as put them back together properly as you will see below.

Please view the two sections of our workshop displayed below

 

SKATEBOARD WORKSHOP 1.

1: Skate kids will learn about safety first. we will introduce safety gear, how it works and why it is always necessary to wear  while skateboarding.

SKATEBOARD WORKSHOP 2.

1: Skate Kids will learn how to take their skateboards completely apart and put them back together on their own with the help of our instructors if needed. The child will be building fine motor skills as they learn and explore what each part of the skateboard is used for and why. Using a screw driver/ allen key ,wrench and skate tool to take each  truck and wheel off. Then properly put them back on their skateboard to assure a safe skate session.

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
