Baldwin, William O.; And Others
This physical education program consists of teaching basic skills and the use of these skills in implementing a progressive sequence from kindergarten through ungraded primary grades. A section on games includes a description of their general purpose, directions for playing each game, and teaching suggestions. Included are 11 games to be introduced at the kindergarten level; 27 group games and 11 classroom games for the next level; 26 group games and eight classroom games for a subsequent level; and 25 group games and six classroom games for the final level. The rhythm program is divided into fundamental rhythms and singing games and dances. This section includes a list of records as well as rhythmic activities for each level. A section on stunts describes their purpose, gives teaching suggestions and recommends safety precautions. Diagrams of stunts at all developmental levels are illustrated. The final section contains a physical fitness test. The guide was planned to be used in conjunction with "Elementary School Physical Education Handbook." (DR)
