Increase physical activity and school readiness in ages 3 to 5! Energetic activities develop and enhance fine/gross motor and activity levels in children preparing to enter Kindergarten. Over 300 activities are designed for quick implementation and participation, and all activities include academic components, inclusion ideas, and adaptions for space limitations.
The focus of SPARK is the development of healthy lifestyles, motor skills, movement knowledge, and social & personal skills.
It is expected that SPARK Physical Education/Physical Activity students will:
- Enjoy and seek out physical activity.
- Develop and maintain acceptable levels of physical fitness.
- Develop a variety of basic movement and manipulative skills so they will experience success and feel comfortable during the present and future physical activity pursuits.
- Develop the ability to get along with others in movement environments (e.g., share space and equipment, employ the “golden rule” of competition: be a good sport and demonstrate cooperative behavior).
