Rhythms and Dance. Games of Low Organization.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
This guide provides activities, resources, and ideas for elementary physical education and classroom teachers. The activities in the basic rhythms program are divided into five classifications: movement patterns, dramatic activities, singing games, creative rhythms-dance, and rhythmic gymnastics. At the beginning of the basic rhythms sections is a list of definitions of the basic locomotor and non-locomotor movements. Fundamental forms of locomotion and non-locomotion are included in the movement patterns. Advice and instructions are offered on adapting physical activities to the capacities of children with physical or mental handicaps. Suggestions are made for conducting group games of lower organization which can be started quickly, have simple rules, and are adaptable to the available space. (JD)
