A Gross Motor Skills Development Program for Children in Kindergarten-Primary.
Sall, Nona G.
This report describes the activities of a practicum which developed, implemented, and evaluated a transportable gross motor skills development program for kindergarten and primary children. The practicum involved three major components: (1) program materials, (2) inservice workshops, and (3) parent training. The program was implemented for three 30-minute periods weekly for 16 weeks in eight K-third grade classes. The evaluation consisted of pretesting all the children on gross motor skills during the first week of school and posttesting them with the same skills inventory after 16 weeks in the program. The results indicated that the children as a group were able to achieve a higher level of skill in the areas tested after participating in the program for 16 weeks. Recommendations for extending the program were offered. (JMB)
