Fundamental Skill Development

As physical educators it is important that basic motor skills are taught and applied to their students daily lives. Skills learned in Physical Education classes don't just help in gym class but may help in routine activities.  A good  teacher is capable of helping students improve in motor, cognitive, and affective categories.  Basic physical movements taught at an early age are helpful when it comes to teaching different material in physical education.  Basic skills like running, skipping, and hopping can help lead to more difficult movements like punting or throwing.  These common movements are in many sports seen on television that many kids wish to participate in.  This greatly helps with proper exercise and a healthier lifestyle.  Without the basic techniques taught and acquired it makes it difficult for children to progress.  Teachers usually incorporate group play in their classes which promotes teamwork and developing social skills.  Lessons taught in Physical Education class give students new thoughts on movement, fitness, and academic concepts. Basic fundamental skills lead to many other important concepts taught at later stages.
