Fundamental Movement Skills: Combination of movement patterns of two or more body parts, twisting/turning, running/jumping and striking/throwing
Related to specific sport activity. Twisting and striking an object=baseball/softball/t-ball
Performance of an isolated movement that by itelf is too restricted to be classified as fundamental or a sport skill. Sidearm, underarm
Body remains in place but moves in a horizontal or vertical axis. dynamic balance tasks which a premium is placed on gaining or maintaining one's equilibrium against the force of gravity, dodging an opponent. axial movements such as reaching twisting turning bending and stretching.
Body moves in a horizontal or vertical direction moving from point A to point B.
Either fine or gross motor movements. Gross motor manipulation: movements that involve giving force to objects or recieving force from objects. throwing, catching, kicking trapping Fine motor manipulation: emphazise motor control, precision and accuracy of movement. target archery, violin playing and darts. Physical Educators focus on the gross motor manipulation
Three key factors that contribute to this are: facilities, equipment, and time.
The failure to stimulate, encourage, and motivate children to engage in physical activity results in the failure of many children to develop their movement abilities.
Enviornmental Setting refers to the immediate surroundings in which children are attempting to learn motor development.
The Fundamental Movement Stage occurs from years 2 to 7. This is when they master basic stablity, locomotor, and manipulative skills.
The Phases and Stages of motor development. The period ranging form 2 to 7 is generaly considered to be the fundamental movement phase becuase it is the ideal time for children to master basic stability, locomotor and manipulative skills,
2-3 years old. In the initial stage of development, children make their first observable and purposeful attempts at performing a task. They may make valid attempt at throwing catching kicking or jumping. But their movements are exagerated or not rhythimaclly coordinated.
3-5 years old. Coordination and rhythmical performance improves and children gain greater control over there movements, However the movements still appear awkward and lack fluidity. Many Aduluts are only at the elementary stage in such basic activities such as throwing striking catching. They have progressed to this stage primarly through maturation. But becuase of insuficcient practice encouragement and instruction they failed to reach the mature stage. PE Teachers should focus on helping their students go from elementary to mature stage in a wide variety of fundamental movements.
This stage is characterized by well coordination, mechanically correct and efficient act.. From his stage performance improves quickly for example chidren can throw further, jump higher and run faster.
Children reach this stage in most fundamental movements by age 6-7. Some may experience a delay or fail in particular skills, while others advance and achieve the mature stage more rapidly. Failure to develop mature patterns of fundamental movement will limit children in a acquiring specialized movement in later childhood, adolescent and adult etc.. Mature fundamental skills form the basis for all sports skills and they must be learned. if they are not learned, a cycle frustration and failure results.
7-10.. This is when children express a high degree intrest in sport and begin wearing sport jersy's and caps and choosing their favorite sport hero. This is when A child is eager to learn but if they do not have the fundamental movement then they get into the frustration failure cycle. But to go back and learn them it will be much more difficult to learn them that it would have been earlier. PE Teachers at this stage should not just playthe game officially, they should expose the basic rules, skills, and strategies of several sports so others can catch up and the advanced ones don't just dominate.
11-13. At this stage they are in Middle School or Junior HS. They start selecting sports that they prefer from prior successful experience with factors such as body type, geographical location, emotional, social , and cultural factors all play a role. Narrowing interests of sports, some prefer contact others don't. The child begins practicing more complex skills and his desire of the sport increases with more active participation on the sport even even competing recreationally.
Its the final stage its based on previous sport and fundamental skill stages and continue through life. Individuals select activities they particulary enjoy and pursue them through their life for fun fitness and fulfillment. Active participation on a regular basis, whether or not on a competitive or recreational level.
Its internally paced because its fixed, She has the luxury of moving at her own pace. she is controlling the pass and its really closed she's not even standing. She's isolating her upper body to really work on the the technique of a 1 arm baseball type distance pass. There are many activities that internally paced such as bowling, golf, weightlifting, even in externaly paced games like basketball free throw shots are internally paced.
Movement activities that constantly changing and unpredictable enviroment like a defender. External moves require quicly and flexible decision making on the spot. Coaches and athletes externally paced practices to mimic in game like situations so they adapt form and perform better in games because they are used to it.
There are three levels students go through in movement skill learning. First they become aware of the task or skill. Then they start to practice and perfect the skill. Lastly they master the skill to the point where they can just do it withough thinking about it.
Within the begginning stages it is important to let them explore and dicover their new skill. It is important to just introduce and provide them with a general idea of skill or activity. This with help them get an idea of what is required and how to consciously plan it with guided intruction and problem solving.
At this level there is a better understanding of the skill with more muscle sense. This joinns actions of mutiple movements. They begin to use this in activity, sport-related activty, or games. Examples: throwing on the run, or grounding a ball and then throwing in baseball.
At this stage the learner does not need to think about the skill they are doing or about to do. It comes naturally. They pay little attention to cognitive aspect. . They act automatically. It is rare for this to happen in elementary age students but is possible.
Its hard to fit everything in on time with so many, just like it is in every classroom. So why cant we give a little homework? Give individualized homework sheets that encourage more physical actvity to each students level. - Use key elements of skill, with teaching tips, and suggested activities.
