CurrClick – St Aiden’s Homeschool, South Africa – Motor Skills Development, A Teacher/Parent Guide & Children’s Activity Book.

The development of fundamental movement skills is considered by many as a key objective of physical education programs because it increases the options for participation in games, sports and other physical activities.

“The development of mastery of fundamental motor skills among children and adolescents through quality physical education is a potentially important contributor to successful and satisfying participation in sport and other physical activities. Fundamental motor skills are motor activities with specific observable patterns and are prerequisites to the advanced skills employed in sports, games, dance, gymnastics and other physical activities (Booth and Holland, 1999, Buschner, 1994, Salmon et al., 2005, O’Connor, 2000).

This book covers almost every conceivable aspect regarding the development and enhancement of Fine and Gross Motor Skills in children, adolescents and even in some cases adults. Guidelines for teaching and assessments are provided, along with hundreds of fun activities for little learners right up to middle elementary school learners. The benefits of encouragement, the teaching of self-worth and good qualities and characteristics, hand/eye coordination, physical movement and development are all discussed in great detail in this book, with references supplied at the end of the book.

Due to the incredibly large amount of information and activities, this ebook has been divided into categories.
