Movement Madness – 3:15 to 4:00

In a Movement Madness Pre-school/kindergartners class we want the kids to learn and feel successful.  We provide them with a 1/2 hour to an hour of movement and sport skills.  Class always begins with a cardio game where all kids are moving and having fun.  Then we move to a sport skill where the kids are learning one or more specific skills as well as taking turns and standing in a short line.  Class is always fun with lots of movement. National Association of Sports/Physical Education recommends that everyday preschoolers should:

  • get at least 60 minutes of ‘structured physical activity’
  • get at least 60 minutes of ‘unstructured physical activity’
  • not be inactive for more than 1 hour at a time (unless sleeping)
