Children participate in physical activities which help them learn to manage and control their bodies in a variety of situations. These movement experiences include large muscle activities such as running, skipping, climbing, rolling, throwing, catching and kicking. Opportunities are provided for learning and practicing social skills and intellectual skills in a physically active setting and in a manner appropriate to the child’s developmental level.
Body management skills are refined as children mature. Participation in activities in the areas of games, sports, physical fitness, dance and gymnastics provides opportunities for students to practice a variety of physical skills. Guided instruction allows children to improve skills in a supportive environment. Acceptable social behavior is encouraged through group participation.
