Fundamental movements are the basic learned movement patterns. These fundamental movement skills (FMS) are the foundation for more complex physical activities (Barrett et al., 2016). Many students will go through elementary PE without receiving the instruction, assessment, and practice opportunities required for FMS mastery (Okley, Booth, & Patterson, 2001) and then transition, under-skilled in FMS, to middle school (Lander et al., 2015).
In this workshop, participants will learn what FMS is, how they can be assessed, and participants will be provided opportunities to participate in specific tasks that can help achieve competence in any of the 3-5 performance criteria of each skill.
Gain an understanding of what makes up a fundamental movement skill.
In depth, examine 13 different fundamental movement skills (6 locomotor and 7 object control).
Learn different activities that can be done to help students achieve competence for a variety of fundamental movement skills.
