    My kids love all of the exercises – especially when they can act out different animals, etc.

    Some of my favorite homeschool moments during the day are from our Homeschool PE Curriculum lesson. We often end in giggles over a game.

    My children are very active. They run, jump, climb trees and ropes, they play tag and have air~soft gun wars. I always considered this their P.E. time, little did I know that there were many muscles my children were not using.

    The kids were very excited to try this out! They got up extra early with eagerness to start their days with a P.E. lesson. My kids are 13, 8, and 4.

    You know an awful lot about my daughter who has Down syndrome and have shared in some of her struggles and have watched many of her successes......There were times when Gess didn't want it (Fitness 4 Homschool) to end and asked me to "play" more.

    Physical Education Q&A
    Team Sports as Physical Education?

    My child is in team sports: why do I need a physical education program?

    • Most team sports include just one hour of practice, and one hour of game time per week. For practices, between teaching new skills, instruction, and other activities, each child might be getting 15-20 minutes of physical activity. For game time, depending on rotation and bench time, again, each child might be getting 15-20 minutes of physical activity. For non-active sports like baseball or softball, there's even less physical activity.
    • Another aspect of team sports is that they require complicated movement patterns, that require coordination between the upper and lower body. Most team sports coaches are parents who just want to spend more time with their children in a fun environment, and they aren't trained in how to progress through fundamental movements to increase skills at the complex level for that sport. Fundamental movement patterns are not being taught, and the children are not increasing their skills.
    • Competition in team sports can push children to try beyond their skills, leading to injuries, and feelings of failure (emotional injury). Research shows that 80%** of children 12 and over are not involved in any type of physical activities. These are the same ages that team sports become highly competitive So children who are physically unskilled drop out of sports as teams get more competitive.
    • As college students and young adults if these same kids decide they want to learn a new sport, and they don't have these fundamental movement patterns, it takes longer, can be frustrating and expensive.
    • Family Time Fitness develops body skills sequentially, very deliberately, in each of the fundamental movement patterns. With these skills in place, all other sports activities become more proficient, and the child is more successful at team sports.

      How much time do we need to exercise?

      • Current recommendations are that a child (person) gets 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise a day
      • Exercise can be done in 5-10 minute sessions, or all at one time
      • Moderate to vigorous exercise can be anything from walking to hopping, skipping or running
