Welcome to class!
In today’s class, we are going to explore the fundamental movement patterns. These are the basic ways we use our bodies to move and play.
Fundamental Movement Patterns:
Running: Running is a fast way to move. It’s like a speedy walk, and it’s fun to race your friends.
Walking: This is the simplest way to move, one step at a time. We walk every day.
Jumping: Jumping is when we push off the ground with our legs and go up into the air. It’s like playing with gravity.
Hopping: Hopping is like jumping on one leg. You can hop like a bunny.
Skipping: Skipping is a fun way to move. It’s like a mix of walking and hopping. You skip by taking a step, then a little hop.
Galloping: Galloping is like the way horses move. You take a step with one foot and then bring the other foot to meet it.
Crawling: Crawling is moving on your hands and knees. Babies do this before they learn to walk.
Rolling: Rolling is moving by turning your body over. It’s fun to roll down a hill or on the grass.
Think about playing with your friends at school. You might race by running, hop during a game of hopscotch, or skip rope during recess. All these are fundamental movement patterns.
Imagine you’re playing hide and seek. You might need to crawl to your hiding spot, and when the game’s over, you could roll down a small hill for fun!
These fundamental movement patterns are the building blocks of how we move and play. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the better you get at using your body in different ways.
Keep having fun while learning these movements, and you’ll become a movement expert!
We have come to the end of today’s class. I hope you enjoyed the class!
In the next class, we shall be discussing Meaning of physical fitness.
