The pre-kindergarten physical education program introduces the students to a comfortable, non-threatening setting where they begin to develop fundamental movement skills. Students work on identifying personal space and spatial awareness, changing direction, stopping and starting, maintaining body control, and introductory manipulative skills. These skills are reinforced using movement activities including obstacle courses, parachute games, musical warm-ups, and activities involving change of direction as well as chasing and fleeing.
Our pre-kindergarten students will:
- learn to perform locomotor and nonlocomotor body movements such as run, start, stop, jump, hop, skip, gallop, leap, and slide
- learn basic manipulative skills such as catching, throwing, bouncing, striking, and rolling
- develop balance skills while stationary and while moving
