As a physical education teacher and parent, I know that kindergarten is a crucial age for physical fitness and development. That's why I've created this section devoted entirely to kindergarten PE skills, to help lay a strong foundation of motor skill abilities, and give your children the best start in their sporting journeys...
Head over to the gymnasium, park, or school playground, and follow along with me and EJ as we use simple equipment to develop balance, hand-eye co-ordination, and spatial awareness!
• In this lesson we go over hopping, jumping, leaping, shuffling and sprinting using cones and spot markers
• In this lesson we try out some different footwork patterns to move swiftly using an agility ladder, developing speed and balance
• In this lesson we practice some soccer skills to improve ball control, foot co-ordination, and stability with both feet
• In this lesson, I've setup a fast-paced circuit to go through, using cones, markers and poles, to practice the gross motor movement skills
