Abstract

Too often, the motor activities for small children in kindergarten resemble or are presented as free play, or, these tasks are inspired by the desire of adults to keep children busy and happy. The focus of a motor programme in Physical Education for kindergarten children is the learning of children. A motor program well built and well presented, offers much more than just the children the opportunity to "vent" or "enjoy". Actually a quality program of Physical Education should facilitate the total development of the child in the affective-social, cognitive and motor areas. Children are able to learn to be responsible for their own actions if they are taught systematically behavior the sooner, the better. In fact you have to plan the motor and social improvement through movement experiences and games. The instructions below give some ideas of how to teach movement and social in the field of Physical Education in Early Childhood Education skills.
