Inspiration to Keep You Going

 


 

 

For many parents, homescholing P.E. begins and ends with having their kids ride their bike a couple of times a week. But, the goal of physical education really is about exposing children to a variety of physcial activities - helping them learn basic sport rules and skills - and helping them find activities they'll enjoy as part of a lifetime of healthy physical fitness.

Not sure your child is made out for team sports? No worries, you'll find 95 different gym class options to fit any child's personality and preferences.

As you select a variety of sports to explore throughout the years, remember to balance out the different types of activities so your kids have the chance to experience how they can develop (1) cardiovascular; (2) muscle strength & endurance; and (3) flexibility. Some sports activities may focus on developing a particular coordination skill, while others might be for enjoyment and social reasons.
