Hocking, Ron; Sampson, Janet
In this supplement to the "K-12 Physical Education Curriculum Guide," developed by the Manitoba Department of Education, the focus is on perceptual-motor programs for children in kindergarten and the first grade. Section I contains a discussion of the rationale for perceptual-motor programs, a curriculum outline, and definitions of terms used in the guide. Section II describes gross-motor, perception, and fine-motor programs. In section III the motor development of children from infancy through early childhood is outlined. Screening and testing young children is the topic of section IV, and a description of the organization of a perceptual-motor program is presented in section V. Section VI offers ideas and suggestions for individual and group activities designed to improve motor skills. The appendixes in section VII include listings of gross-motor tests, basic equipment, and lesson plans. (JD)
