Toddlers Moving and Learning - A Physical Education Curriculum
Publisher: Redleaf Press
This is one of the very few movement education programs designed for toddlers (18-36 months). It includes activities that exercise the whole body and encourage children to enjoy physical activity and fitness. It can instill lifelong healthy habits—something that is especially important when obesity rates are at an all-time high. A bound-in CD includes 23 original songs that add joy and energy to 14 lesson plans. Each lesson plan contains four activities, plus extension ideas.This book was first published by Human Kinetics, followed by Delmar Cengage Learning in 2000 (ISBN 978-0-7668-1602-2), as part of the Moving and Learning series. The other books in the series are also updated by Redleaf Press: Preschoolers and Kindergarteners Moving and Learning (ISBN 978-1-60554-268-3) and Early Elementary Children Moving and Learning (ISBN 978-1-60554-269-0). Updates reflect early learning standards, working with children with special needs, and the book will be sold at a lower, more attractive price for teachers and caregivers. Author Rae Pica, an internationally recognized leader in the early childhood education field, is a proponent for physical education for young children. She served on the National Association for Sport and Physical Education's task force that created national guidelines for early childhood physical activity.
