"#ility to perform variations of different locomotor skills (e.g. jumping for height and distance. skipping at different speeds . /y the end of third grade, students !ill #e a#le to demonstrate all striking and thro!ing patterns. Students can catch a moving o#ject from a high trajectory in nongame play environments and are a#le to catch o#jects at a medium level trajectory during game play. "#ility to com#ine skills in dynamic and comple* situations, demonstrating se(uences commonly associated !ith various sports and activities (e.g. moving to a #all, trapping, dri##ling, and then passing it. for!ard roll, scale (#alance , travel and then do a cart!heel . 0verhead thro!ing and striking patterns are mastered and a#ility to catch or handle o#jects from and trajectory (lo!, medium, or high in simple situations.

Speciali1ed skills are adapted to meet the re(uirements of increasingly comple* strategies. Demonstrate the a#ility to use mature forms for the #asic skills and tactics in si* of eight categories.

Standard 6: Demonstrates understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as

Students kno! !hen, !hy, and ho! to use strategies and tactics !ithin the game.

Standard 7: 8articipates regularly in physical activity.


Kindergarten Students participate in physical activity largely #ecause of the pleasure they e*perience. -hey engage primarily in non'structured physical activities on an intermittent #asis in and out of physical education class.

During their leisure time, students purposely select and participate in activities that are moderate to vigorous in nature. -hey recogni1e that participation in enjoya#le physical activities has #oth temporary and lasting effects on their #ody. Student !ill #e a#le to demonstrate the importance of regular physical activity for enjoyment and health. Students are actively involved in activities that provide opportunities to interact !ith others in an active environment. Students !ill #e a#le to use information from a variety of sources to regulate their activity #ehavior. Students participate in physical activities that provide important opportunities for challenges in social interaction and group mem#ership !ith the goal of voluntary participation outside of class. 8hysical activity choices are #ased on personal interests and capa#ilities to maintain an active lifestyle. Students have an increased a!areness of opportunities for activity leading to an increased enjoyment in voluntary participation. ,nderstanding the connection #et!een physical activity and !ellness is like!ise enhanced and motivates students to identify resources in the community that facilitate attainment of individual lifestyle goals and personal choice #ehavior. Students #egin to take o!nership in the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. -hey make independent decisions a#out their physical activities that enhance their lifelong health. -hey meet healthy guidelines #y participating regularly in moderate to vigorous physical activities #oth in school and outside of school settings.

Standard 9: "chieves and maintains a health enhancing level of physical fitness.


Students !ill engage in physical activity for short periods of time for the pleasure e*perienced from simply moving. -hey can identify #asic physiological signs associated !ith participation in physical activity. Students engage in physical activities for short periods of
