Leaps and Bounds. A Guide for ETV Movement Education Series.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
In physical education at the elementary level, students are taught to move with efficiency in all situations, to have knowledge about movement, and to value movement as an essential part of life. Teachers stress problem solving, discovery, and concept learning in teaching physical education to young children. To assist teachers and students, kindergarten-grade 2, in developing a firm foundation in movement, the television series "Leaps and Bounds" was developed along with this accompanying teacher's guide. There is a total of 16 programs, each 15 minutes long and covering a specific skill area, in this television series. Skill areas are arranged sequentially from basic body awareness and control concepts to the more complex skills of kicking and striking. This guide for "Leaps and Bounds" has been designed to take the teacher through the 16-program television series step-by-step. Each program has been divided into two major areas in the guide: program and lessons. The heading "program" and its subheadings (movement concepts, objectives, focus for the teacher, focus for the child, follow-up, and references) refer specifically to the television presentation. "Lessons" and its subheadings (lesson concepts, lesson focus, learning activities, culminating activities, and follow-up) refer to the three follow-up lessons designed for each program in the "Leaps and Bounds" series.
