Product Description

FACT: Children to be physically active!

Physical activity is important to children's development improve coordination, uses imagination and stimulates brain-body linking.

Distractors, diets and lack of space or time in kids' lives are barriers to a basic Right of each of us: to move daily.

Thanks! for sensing that my STORE has goals to help kids be healthy and happy though the physical activity.

Whether you are a classroom teacher, a physical education specialist or a child care center professional, I promise this product will deliver: solid preparation in locomotor patterns and skills.

This FOOT PATH IV is a part of a 5-part entire curriculum that is developing FOOT USE for the Pre-K and K age groups. My mission is to give teachers a logically organized plan to bring movement competency and beginning sport education to their students.

The entire Foot Path Training Program aims building mastery of the fundamental movement skills.

Whether hanging by their arms, while exploring a playground's challenges -or- enjoying ACTIVE physical PLAY, children thrive on being alive, in motion ~ participating in life.

My Store: Physical Literacy Step-by-Step

offers a designed program that called: The larger curriculum that Physical Literacy Step-by-Step offers an array of activities that help children learn about movement skills, movement concepts [like starting and stopping] and strategies that are associated with many types of play and games.

This product: FOOT PATH IV will provide you with a series of designed MATS, with varying foot outlines and instructions for giving your students the foundation for moving confidently and WELL! This UNIT concentrates n JUMPING: Take-offs & Landings.

~ Find the Extra Learning BONUS page about the HAND-FOOT COMPLEX.

How to Use:

After printing and laminating a enclosed set of mats, you will follow a set of instructions that suggest a specific sequence for placing these laminated foot outlines on your play/gymnasium floor.

As you explain to your class that each physical activity we perform has:

• A START position

• An ACTION phase

• A STOP position

They can develop the discipline of self-regulation through this activity.

As you monitor their attempts, your CUE WORDS and use of directional terms will establish a literacy link to movement.

You can help them in their learning process by providing learning cues when and only: if required. With some verbal guidance, some modeling and nurturing the child's natural abilities, these abilities will GROW. Abilities need progressive challenges to make gains. Ability growth does not happen naturally. It must be cultivated!

This lesson will establish a Lesson Pattern [for the rest of the series] as you use the Foot Path Series to train the fundamental movement skills [FMS] that are called: PHYSICAL LITERACY.

Just as academic educators realize: physical educators use the three learning phases:

• The Discovering phase

• The Developing phase

• The Consolidating phase

in student knowledge and development movement competency.

Using that progressive teaching approach, the Physical Literacy Step-by-Step curriculum targets:

• Body awareness

• Spatial awareness

• Qualities of body movement

• Sensing relationships: to people and equipment

Students learn more effectively when they are involved in problem solving. With use of this structured lesson and the future lessons, as well as coupling unstructured daily active play, students will make gains in critical thinking.

Physical-Literacy Step-by-Step has designed a whole program to provide a series of progressively organized movement tasks.

Each task provides opportunities for students to experience an activity and play an active role in contributing to or being a part of their own learning.

Our curriculum delivers physical education knowledge as defined by National Standards as well as integrating CCSS through: Providing verbal cues and instruction; Introducing new vocabulary words; Practicing counting using multiples when keeping score and spelling out words related to physical education.
