Game Skill Development.
Kisabeth, Kathryn L.
Before discussing the development of skills for playing elementary school physical education games, this document lists basic assumptions about children, movement education, games, and elementary school physical education. Four basic concepts, which are common to all team games, are identified: (1) use of personal and moving space and finding space; (2) stopping--foot position, and moving into and out of stops; (3) dodging; and (4) partner space awareness. These concepts are discussed in the light of the assumption that movement skills are the building blocks to successful participation in games and that movement is learned through practice and carefully planned experiences. Each concept is described, and suggestions are given for activities that will develop movement skills that children will use in playing games and participating in sports. A sample lesson is presented. (JD)
