Movement Education in Beginners
(Two 30-minute classes per week.)
Movement Education in Beginners helps children to develop personally, socially, and cognitively through a variety of movement activities. Students are presented with various locomotor, non-locomotor, and manipulative skills, and are introduced to movement concepts that incorporate spatial awareness, levels, and patterns.
Students also learn about the importance of being physically active and begin to recognize physiological signs associated with participation in moderate to vigorous physical activity (e.g., sweating, fast heart rate, and heavy breathing). In movement classes, the focus is on the importance of following directions, playing fairly, and interacting positively with classmates, regardless of personal differences in ability. Students are encouraged to participate, explore, and have fun in a safe, non-competitive and respectful environment.
