Tots in Action on and beyond the Playground
Schilling, Tammy; McOmber, Kelly
Young Children, v61 n3 p34-36 May 2006
Helping young children see themselves as learners and movers requires mutual cooperation and support among teachers, families, and children. Physical educators at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, in collaboration with pre-K teachers at two local schools, created the Tots in Action program for that purpose. The authors tell how the program increases activity levels in school and at home and how it helps children accept physical activity as a natural part of life, not just as a playground activity.
