Motor Development: A Guide for Learning Assistance Classes.
Jenkins, Rose B.; Slansky, Nancy
This guide was prepared to include motor development activities that supplement the regular physical education curriculum; it was written primarily for teachers of children with learning problems, but may also offer ideas to any teacher wishing to broaden the motor development experiences in the regular physical education program. The guide is divided into nine chapters: (1) an overview with goals and requirements; (2) motor development analysis and assessments; (3) warm-ups and physical fitness activities; (4) perceptual motor activities; (5) manipulative aids, such as parachutes and jump ropes; (6) stunts, tumbling, and apparatus activities; (7) movement to music; (8) integrating academic subjects and physical education; and (9) inclement weather activities. The various activities suggested for each of the units of study in the physical education curriculum guides are related from the standpoint of skill and are arranged in order of difficulty from simple to complex. An appendix includes a glossary of terms, audio-visual materials suitable for physical education, and a bibliography. (SK)
