written for homeschooling families looking to supplement their PE programs with a wider range of activities that can be used to teach children fitness, movement and sports skills.
The author, Guy Bailey, wrote The Ultimate Homeschool Physical Education Game Book after sensing such a need in homeschooling parents for activities. He has worked in Physical Education for over 22 years and desires to see children equipped "with a love of movement and the basic skills necessary to participate in an active lifestyle now and as adults."
Homeschooling parents are faced with a few specific problems when it comes to Physical Education. One is varying ages and levels of their children. Other problems facing homeschooling parents are small class sizes, a backyard vs gymnasium setting, and the lack of expensive equipment. Guy Bailey listened to homeschooling parents and came up with solutions.
The activities listed in the book need only 2-4 children and require inexpensive equipment, much of which is probably already in your home. All are easily played in your backyard and some are even suited perfectly for indoor play during winter months. Through this book he proved that quality PE games can be played with fewer children in smaller areas.
In the beginning of the book are tips for successfully using the games in a PE curriculum. The games are divided into 10 sections by the equipment used: Basketball, Football, Soccer, Softball, Raquet and Net, Recreational Sports, Playground Games, More PE Games with a Homeschool Twist, Fitness Building, Rope Jumping Activities. This allows the homeschooling parent to make use of equipment they already have on hand. Sections are followed by a glossary of terms familiar to that sport.

Format: Paperback
The Ultimate Homeschool Physical Education Game Book by physical education instructor and sports coach Guy Bailey is a very highly recommended guide for homeschooling parents which is filled from cover to cover with games and activities designed to teach children fitness, sports skills, and the joy of exercise. From simplified versions of traditional favorites such as basketball, football, soccer, and softball, to variants of tag, rope jumping, and playground games such as kickball, The Ultimate Homeschool Physical Education Game Book is an invaluable and "user friendly" resource which is dearly needed in a world overly saturated with television and other passive entertainments.

I am homeschooling my 14 yr old son and needed some structure for a Physical Education program. I was hoping this book would provide me with that structure. It's not exactly what I was hoping for (a fill in the blank type of map), but it has given our P.E. program some depth. What I think it does best is acknowledge that homeschool groups can be small. There are games and sports designed for as few as two players. With this one book, I will be able to keep my son (and me) active. I will have to add other resources (rules for regulation play on team sports), but this book is a good resource for the homeschooling family.

Our homeschool was moving right along, but we are several years in and I still didn't have the phys ed component working. It's really hard to keep two kids interested in it when you are doing basic calesthenics and running, when you're even doing it at all. I was really hoping to find a book that had games in it that could be played with as little as three people and still be active and fun. I found this book on Amazon, crossed my fingers, and ordered.
It arrived yesterday and I am so thrilled with it! Almost every page of the book has an activity. They are grouped by the sport that inspired them. And while you can't play a proper game of soccer with only three people, the activities in the book will allow me to start teaching them soccer skills and basic rules for the game, and if they are interested and want to join a team, they won't be playing catch-up. There are sections for all the major sports played in the US, as well as modified playground games (like ones based on tag and four-square). The sections set up to teach based on actual sports are laid out like simple lesson plans with the purpose of the activity, materials needed, number of players, and set-up followed by the how-to directions. The sections on playground games have several activities per page and give a good explanation on how to play.

This is not a book to use to teach the effects of and reasons for exercise. If you are looking for worksheets for your kids to fill in about calorie expenditure and major muscle groups, this is not the book. Those books are out there in one form or another, but as far as I can tell, there are no books full of activities for small groups that actually teach sports skills. I'm very, very pleased with this purchase and am spreading the word about it to my fellow homeschoolers.

My 9 and 7-year-olds really enjoy the games presented in this book! We tried out "triple action kickball" last week, and they begged to play it again the next day! A relief to me, as I'm always scrambling to "fit in" P.E.! I got a good workout, too. Another great benefit is that my son in particular bonds with me (his mom/teacher/boss) if I'm playing an active game with him. I find that a good physical game like the ones presented so clearly in this book, really help the rest of the day go more smoothly. Thanks, Guy Bailey! Highly recommended!
