The Rhythm and Moves physical education curriculum teaches students successful ways of moving so they enjoy physical activity while learning that being physically fit and healthy is good for their physical, emotional and social well-being. The highly qualified, professional and motivated educators engage each student – revealing their inner potential to embrace physical activity and life-long health and fitness. The expected outcomes of the program continue to evolve to address the changing needs regarding health and fitness in an ever-evolving society.
The foundation of the curriculum is based on Laban’s Movement Education Principals and the TGFU (Teaching Games for Understanding) Model for teaching sport skills and concepts. Health and fitness concepts are introduced throughout each unit, focusing on individual health and fitness that will enhance performance of the specific movement or sport being taught.
The general objectives of each lesson are based on the SHAPE National Standards for physical education kindergarten – eighth grade.
