News From the Gym

Corey Luce/Coach: "We just finished up with scooters in Physical Education. We are about to start parachute activities which deal with team work, building upper body strength, and spacial awareness. After parachute activities we will be getting into fundamental and complex movements."

Complex physical movements, such as sports, martial arts or dancing, require a lot of practice to become automatic, because they need to be learned consciously. Children of all ages benefit from physical activity outside their school gym. Non-competitive, fun activities, individual or team sports, using outdoor toys, tend to improve Kindergatners physical learning.
