8 Why A Need for Physical Education?
According to the National Association for Sports and Physical Education children need physical education Physical education is an integral part of the total education of every child in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Quality physical education programs are needed to increase the physical competence, health-related fitness, self-responsibility and enjoyment of physical activity for all students so that they can be physically active for a lifetime. Physical education programs can only provide these benefits if they are well planned and well implemented. Improved Physical Fitness Improves children's muscular strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, body composition and cardiovascular endurance. Skill Development Develops motor skills, which allow for safe, successful and satisfying participation in physical activities. Regular, Healthful Physical Activity Provides a wide-range of developmentally appropriate activities for all children. Support of Other Subject Areas Reinforces knowledge learned across the curriculum. Serves as a lab for application of content in science, math and social studies. Self Discipline Facilitates development of student responsibility for health and fitness. Improved Judgment Quality physical education can influence moral development. Students have the opportunity to assume leadership, cooperate with others; question actions and regulations and accept responsibility for their own behavior. Stress Reduction Physical activity becomes an outlet for releasing tension and anxiety, and facilitates emotional stability and resilience. Strengthened Peer Relationships Physical education can be a major force in helping children socialize with others successfully and provides opportunities to learn positive people skills. Especially during late childhood and adolescence, being able to participate in dances, games and sports is an important part of peer culture. Improved Self-confidence and Self-esteem Physical education instills a stronger sense of self-worth in children based on their mastery of skills and concepts in physical activity. They can become more confident, assertive, independent and self-controlled. Experience Setting Goals Gives children the opportunity to set and strive for personal, achievable goals.

Movement Education Models focus on the lifelong process of motor development. The purpose of movement education is to teach children the principles that govern human movement and guide them in becoming skillful movers. This is best achieved by planning lessons around a theoretical model of human movement. Rudolf Laban's movement classification system serves as the basis for decision-making. The system's components include Body Awareness, Space Awareness, Quality of Movement and Relationships. These concepts provide the content for the curriculum in educational games, educational dance and educational gymnastics. A widely used, field-tested and certified model is Every Child A Winner, which measurably improves fitness and motor skills and contributes to enhanced academics and self-esteem. This model uses problem solving teaching methods, which allow students to develop decision-making skills. In the field tested lessons, scope, sequence and progression can be found in movement terminology and motor skill development. Program objectives provide the teaching focus and desired learning outcomes for students. Movement tasks are designed to stimulate critical thinking and provide inclusion while also improving physical fitness, motor skills, vocabulary and cooperative learning. Competition is both designed and initiated by children. All children are encouraged to reach their potential. Texts for the model can be found in Every Child A Winner Lesson Plans, A Movement Education Curriculum for Today's Child, Levels I, II, III (Rocket and Owens). The Program Effectiveness Panel, U. S. Department of Education certifies the texts. Please refer to Appendix G Every Child a Winner Movement Chart, for a full listing of the concepts taught in this program.
