13 What is Physical Literacy? Individuals who are physically literate move with competence in a wide variety of physical activities that benefit the development of the whole person.-Physical and Health Education CanadaAlthough the concept of physical literacy is relatively new to most parents, coaches, and teachers, definitions have existed for well over four decades.To move with poise and confidence, read the situation, react appropriately in a variety of environments. Once these skills are built up, there is an increase in self esteem and self confidence.PL is based on culture and personal ability.Ever Active Schools: A Taste of FMS
14 Why is Physical Literacy Important? If a child misses out on learning fundamental movement skills, or has a negative physical education experience, they are unlikely to chose to take part in a sport activity that requires expertise in that skillCanadian Sport for Life. Developing Physical Literacy:A Guide For Parents of Children Ages 0-12Introduce PL guide for parents here!Many sports have recognized that the children and youth in their programs lack basic movement skillsBeing physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity settingConfidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned fundamental movement and sport skills as a child.Therefore PL is an important concept for education leaders/teachers.Ever Active Schools: A Taste of FMS

18 Developmentally Appropriate Skills Teaching a five-year old to use an overhand throw for accuracy by asking him/her to stand 10m away and throw a regulation size softball to a small targetGiving him/her a smaller ball, standing him/her closer to a larger targetThis creates greater success and better skill proficiencyContext paperBullet #1: is a developmentally inappropriate taskEver Active Schools: A Taste of FMS

21 Five Dimensions of Activity Alberta curriculum has identified 5 dimensions of activity:Alternative EnvironmentsDanceTypes of GymnasticsGamesIndividual activitiesBy creating lesson plans early teachers can ensure diverse forms of activity are coveredEver Active Schools: A Taste of FMS
23 FMS DefinedA common motor activity with specific movement patterns … which form the foundation for more advanced and specific movement activities (p. 253)Gabbard, C. P. (2000). Lifelong motor development. Toronto: Allyn & BaconDefinition found in the Canadian Sport for Life context paperEver Active Schools: A Taste of FMS
24 Why Are FMS Important? Fundamental Movement Skills: Are the basic building blocks for the overall development of physical literacyAre critical for children to become competent in sporting activitiesWithout them, many children and youth choose to withdraw from sportThe alphabet and phonics are needed to eventually read Shakespeare. Identifying numbers and learning to add and subtract are the fundamental skills needed to eventually balance a cheque-book. These skills are building blocks to higher level activities.Without the development of fundamental movement skills, many children and youth choose to withdraw from sport and turn to more inactive and/or unhealthy choices during their leisure time.Using chart paper use long division skill without subtration...Lead into following slide..Ever Active Schools: A Taste of FMS

26 Categories of FMS FMS include: Stability skills: includes the ability to sense a shift in the body and adjust for itLocomotor skills: consist of total body movementObject manipulation: a force given or receivedEver Active Schools: A Taste of FMS
27 FMS ProgressionThere is typically a developmental progression amongst the skillsChildren must master certain stability skills before they can progress onto locomotor skills (Stopping involves stability)Manipulative skills are generally the last to emergeEver Active Schools: A Taste of FMS
28 The Phases of Movement Four Phases Preparation Force production Critical instantFollow-through/RecoveryKey IdeasUse all the body parts (joints) that can be usedUse them through as great a range of motion as is naturally possibleCritical instant is the moment of releaseFollow through in the direction you want the “force” to go“Movement through a fundamental skill can be broken down into four key phases”Four PhasesPreparationForce productionCritical instantFollow-through/RecoveryEver Active Schools: A Taste of FMS
