Many books focus on which motor skills should be taught to primary school children, but few focus on how to teach those skills. Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills bridges that gap and provides expert instruction on both. The book will help teachers guide their students in mastering the critical elements of eight locomotor and 17 manipulative skills. The approach offers a perfect balance between sound pedagogy and fun activities that will engage students and keep them learning. It will help teachers capitalise on the natural excitement and eagerness that most primary/wage children bring to physical education and provides motivating methods to keep the children excited as they learn fundamental motor skills.
