FACT: Children need to be physically active!
Physical activity is important to children's development as it improves coordination, recruits 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.
Your download is the first section an entire curriculum. My mission is to give teachers a logically organized plan to bring movement competency and starting sport education to their students.
The entire Foot Path Training Program aims building mastery of the fundamental movement skills. The initial component of this foot work curriculum is the FOOT PATH I Unit.
When you open your FOOT PATH I download, you will own the beginning of an entire child-centered movement training program. This educational domain should be part of early childhood education because preschoolers should not be inactive for longer than one hour.
My Store: Physical Literacy Step-by-Step offers a complete curriculum with 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 I 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!

How to Use:

Teaching Hint: 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.
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.
