All children need an outlet physically, mentally and socially. A Physical Education program should satisfy these needs. It is important that a child be exposed to a vast number of activities, such as sports and games. This will enhance fitness and athletic ability, captivating the child’s self esteem. This will promote a life containing sports and fitness as a daily event.
The Physical Education program emphasizes sportsmanship and respect toward classmates, and the ability to interact with their peers. This skill will socially and mentally help them in their maturation.
Overall, the Physical Education program should cater to the needs of all students, guiding them to a better themselves in all areas of physical and athletic ability. Each child should possess body awareness and the ability to move in space comfortably.
Finally, a successful program is one in which all children will be enthusiastic and happy motivating them to return to class. In this way, the instructor plays an intricate role in developing the “whole self” through educating the mind and body.
