The manual is designed to provide the physical education teacher or the kindergarten teacher with an orderly sequence of experiences for promoting growth in body awareness, dynamic balance, muscular strength, spatial awareness, and temporal awareness in the 5- and 6-year-old learning disabled child. The 33 weeks of lesson plans are designed for daily 20-minute physical education class periods. Initial sections of the document cover class organization, the motor perception test, tips for testing, a sample motor perception test recording chart, and warm-up exercises. The bulk of the document outlines activities which include throw and catch, tumbling, and folk dance. Appended are a suggested record list and supplemental activities involving visual motor skills and motor perception skills. (SBH)
