As a Pre-school physical education teacher, I found this book very usefull. It has a lot of games and ideas to do with the kids. It is well organized and explained. In some schools there are no a P.E. teacher specialized in pre-school, so regular teachers and parents need a guide to keep kids active and developing their motor skills. I recommend this book as a good guide to start.

Format: Paperback
This is a perfect resource book for any pre-school/pre-K classroom or program. It contains hundreds of exercises and games designed to develop endurance, strength, balance and flexibility in children three to five years old. The games are categorized by the type of exercise (stretching, building muscle, teaching balance, etc.) and the size of group the activity is appropriate for (pair, small group, any size, entire group). They are further broken down into levels, starting with more basic exercises that will help young children develop the skills necessary for more complex physical activity.

Here are just a few of my favorites:
Mimicking the body movements of different animals, such as lizards, crocodiles, and inchworms.
The Overhead: having the children pretend to reach for something overhead that is just a little out of their reach.
The Baseball Swing & the Airplane Soar!

This is a great book. It has dozens of ideas for activities that will help young children be more active, while allowing them to use their imaginations. As a primary school teacher myself, I am sure it will be a wonderful addition to our classroom. It is chock-full of fun, SIMPLE ideas to get kids moving!

I received this book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program.

I received this book as an EarlyReader for LibraryThing.

As a grandmother of a 3 year old, I was excited to receive a copy of this book and I am not disappointed! In an age where children can find so many things to sit in front of or hold in their hands, it is smart to have a game plan to promote activity. This book is a primer for parents, teachers, group leaders and grandparents to use in promoting fun fitness activities for pre-schoolers. It is divided into exercises and games on different levels. It can be used with groups and solo.
The exercises are basic ones we all know, with a name or idea to make it fun for a little one to do. Exercises are categorized by the skills they promote; balance, fine motor, jumping, running, heart strength, etc. If equipment is needed it is minimal and noted. There are music and rhythm games that be used at parties.
Stringing a group of activities together in a block of time to do a workout (without calling it one) is a nice addition. I can see teachers using that.
Also, it is going to be good for the teacher or parent or grandparent who does these activities with their little one! Healthy at all ages.
The author is a fitness and dance instructor who has tested these activities.
