Physical education curriculum for young children

Physical education is a critical part of every early childhood curriculum. Children need to move to channel their energies in creative, beneficial ways and to learn habits for lifelong health and fitness. The books in Rae Pica's Moving & Learning series provide developmentally appropriate activities for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners, and early elementary children and contribute to a well-rounded curriculum in any classroom or program.

Each book contains
  • An updated introduction reflecting new research and trends in early childhood health and fitness and information on how movement benefits children's learning and development
  • Movement activities, extension ideas, and adaptations to use with children who have special needs
  • Curriculum connections for each activity and explanations about how activities are aligned with and meet early learning standards from NAEYC and AAHPERD
  • A CD with original music to add joy and energy to the activities

Set includes one copy each of Toddlers Moving & Learning, Preschoolers and Kindergartners Moving & Learning, and Early Elementary Children Moving & Learning.
