Kindergarten
Developing fundamental movement patterns is the primary focus of the kindergarten physical education curriculum. Children will be at various levels of maturity across all skills and should demonstrate continuous improvement in movement under very simple conditions. While developing fundamental skill patterns, the students will begin to learn key movement concepts that help them perform in a variety of educational games, educational dances, and educational gymnastics. They will learn how their bodies react to vigorous physical activity. Students will learn to use safe practices, cooperate with and respect others, and follow classroom rules. Experiences in physical education will help them develop a positive attitude for leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
