What this book focuses on:

We emphasize four key areas in our program, and we firmly believe that this resource will not only simplify the teaching of fundamental movement skills but also make it an enjoyable, stress-free experience for both educators and learners.

  • Equipment and Safety

    You do not need all the equipment in this book!
    We give you station ideas and you can tailor to what you have on hand.

    We guide you through the art of equipment usage, safety and station creation, ensuring that everyone can participate with minimal wait times.

    Here's what you'll discover:
    - Equipment Guidance
    - Efficient Station Creation
    - Minimizing Wait Times
    - Optimizing Class Time

  • Brain Science

    In Brain Science we discuss how physical movement profoundly influences brain function. Recognizing this interdependence highlights the value of regular physical activity for optimizing cognitive abilities and emotional well-being.

    You'll read about how the brain:
    Boosts the Release of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF)
    - Creates Connectivity Between the Cerebellum and Prefrontal Cortex
    - Engages the Vestibular System
    - Integrates Both Brain Hemispheres
    - Enhances Visual-Motor Skills
    - Improves Visual Perception
    - Elevates moods

  • Curriculum Outcomes, Assessments and Worksheets

    Our program is carefully designed to align with established educational standards and curriculum frameworks. By doing so, we ensure that our content and activities complement what students are learning in their academic subjects.

    We do the heavy lifting by having:
    - Lesson Plans with Multi-Use Floor Plans and Grade Level Overviews
    - Assessment and Worksheets Linking Directly
    - Cross-Curricular Integration Connected with Multiple Subjects

  • Fundamental Movement Skills

    In the early years of development, children embark on a journey of discovery through movement. We offer the building blocks of physical literacy, enhancing skills that lay the foundation for a lifetime of active and confident exploration.

    Our program emphasizes:
    - Shapes
    - Levels and Directions
    - Animal Travels and Pathways
    - Jumping and Turning
    - Patterns
