Moving With Words & Actions will help you develop physical literacy and language literacy in your preschool and primary-grade students. The text offers more than 70 lesson plans that are aligned with SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education. The plans use an interdisciplinary approach and are adaptable for various settings. The earlier that children develop a love for physical activity, the better able they are to acquire the healthy habits that will serve them well throughout their lives. Moving With Words & Actions is designed to help them develop that critical physical literacy.

The plans can be used immediately or can be used as models for creating additional lessons. The plans reinforce both physical literacy and language literacy; they use words related to children’s academic learning and understanding of their immediate environment to entice them to move. The lesson plans use an interdisciplinary approach integrating academic concepts from language arts, math, science, health and nutrition, community awareness, and environmental awareness. They are highly adaptable for various settings, including those working with individualized education programs and 504 accommodation plans as well as those teaching in limited spaces. Offers great noncompetitive activities that are perfect for use during recess, lunchtime, and before- and after-school specialists. They have been field tested according to best practices to ensure age appropriateness.

Each lesson plan includes three learning tasks that help children apply a variety of action words and movement concepts to the moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activities prescribed in the tasks. Most tasks are easy to implement, requiring no equipment or specialized setting. What’s more, all lesson plans address SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education, so preschool children will have a head start on their kindergarten learning.

This SHAPE America book, based on the authors’ classic Movement-Based Learning, has been completely revamped with new lessons and new material to reflect current research, address the new standards and outcomes, and emphasize physical literacy. Part I offers expert guidance in selecting age-appropriate content, creating and implementing lesson plans, making the most of every lesson, and assessing your students’ learning and progress. In part I, you’ll explore the importance of words in young children’s lives and learn what constitutes an appropriate learning task and how that understanding should inform your teaching. These chapters also highlight two primary instructional strategies for this age group, identify five teaching practices to help student teachers create pre-service lessons, and outline three assessment techniques for teachers in early-childhood settings.

Part II supplies the lesson plans themselves, categorized by Healthy Bodies (examining body parts and the ways they move, and increasing awareness of healthy nutrition); Our Community (enhancing children’s understanding of community helpers in familiar roles); Living Creatures (helping children appreciate animals by imitating their movements, behaviors, and characteristics); Science and Math (using action rhymes, riddles, and games to learn math and science concepts); and Language Arts (expanding on children’s language arts and movement vocabularies with alphabet challenges, action poems, movement riddles, and more).

Moving With Words & Actions will help you plan lessons with confidence, use sound instructional strategies, and assess your students effectively as they learn how their bodies function, move, and grow in healthy ways. Children will enjoy the movement activities, which are fun in and of themselves; but, more importantly, they will be taking a solid first step toward becoming physically literate learners who will gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to move with competence in multiple environments and lead active lives.
