We won a copy of the Activity Workbook (Vol 1) Physical Education K-1 st several months ago on a twitter party. While re-evaluating our lesson plans for 2012 I decided we needed to incorporate some physical education into our days. So for the past 4 weeks the kids and I (yup me too) have been working through the workbook. All workbooks are delivered in electronic pdf format so you only need to make one purchase and print as many as you need if you have multiple children. I chose to only print up one workbook for my kids since Rowyn is not really writing much yet. After I printed our workbook I three hole punched it and put it in a binder (I have a binder addiction). For each age group K-1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-5th there are 4 workbook volumes.
First we do the warm ups which are so much fun. There are exercises like popcorn, angel arms, superman and ball chops.After the warm ups we do about 2 of the workbook pages which include vocabulary, definitions, handwriting practice, flash cards, matching, and coloring pages. The worksheets for the older age groups include vocabulary, definitions, crossword puzzles, word searches, quizzes and more. After we do the worksheets its time for our cool down. Cool down exercises include leg slides, bowing pose, roll like a ball and butterfly pose. There are links to videos for each of the exercises so you and your kids know exactly how to do them. The entire process only takes us about 20 minutes.
Since we live in an apartment we don't have the convenience of a yard that the kids can go out to play in whenever they need to burn energy. So it is nice to have a PE curriculum that the kids can do indoors and that doesn't require much room. And as simple as the exercises may seem they DO tire you out and work every muscle in your body. Lately we have been doing our workbook first thing in the morning. Which I have noticed helps the kids focus better. They are not as fidgety and their attitudes seem better. I love that these workbooks introduce the kids not only to exercising but also terms used in physical education, nutrition and health. There is so much more to PE and Family Time Fitness knows that and that is what they provide! There is certainly something for everyone (even parents) and every type of learner in this curriculum.
Right now the workbooks are on sale for $4.77 for the individual workbooks or $17.77 for 4 volumes. And right now 2 lucky readers are going to be able to enter to win a workbook.
Want even more? Something for the entire family? Then check out the Fitness4 Homeschool Physical Education Curriculum which is on sale for $99 right now. I am a little jealous actually because we do not have this yet and 4 lucky readers are going to be able to win the curriculum on my blog. This program contains 260 planned lessons. The Fitness 4 Homeschool Curriculum includes a startup guide, PDF lesson plans, video demonstrations, assessment tools, reminder emails, lifetime curriculum and video updates, access to online webinars and certificates of completion. This program comes with lifetime access to all program updates or revisions as well.
So if one of your family's New Years Resolutions was to get healthier in 2012 then this curriculum is just what you need!
