An Essential Elementary School Fitness Resource That Builds Physical, Mental, and Social Skills

The research speaks for itself, active children improve learning outcomes. Fitness Skillastics® is a powerful resource that helps children learn new ways to improve fitness skills, work with others and understand what physically fit and active for a lifetime really means. All 26 physical activities are approved by leading childhood fitness experts and are aligned with the National Physical Education Standards and AfterSchool HEPA Guidelines. The detailed, online instructional manual includes muscle group recognition activities to enhance the fitness experience. Add the Skillastics® Elementary Nutritional Cards for a perfect balance of physical activity and nutritional knowledge.

Fitness Skillastics helps children improve their fitness levels through fun, yet basic conditioning and calisthenics activities. Children participate in locomotor exercises like quick jumps, skipper and imaginary Jump Rope, as well as non locomotor movements such as Twister, butterfly and Ball Twist Exchange.

I’m gonna share with you how the celebrated skillastics technique works. You lay this oversized mat in the middle of a plain area. You take the same color dice and beanbag markers and lay them on the same color start button on the oversized mat. You take a group of kids and divide them into six teams, assigning each team of color, and then you put the teams away from this big mat. Each team gets a miniature mat in their team area as a reference. When the kids are in their team area, you have them number off so they know how to take turns. The way it starts is you just say, go or turn on music, and the first child from each team comes running to their color. So six kids come running to their color, they roll their dice, whatever they roll, they land on an activity they look at, look at the activity, run back to their group, point it out on the miniature mat, and everybody in that group has to do that activity together. How many repetitions do they do? Well on each activity, there’s three different colored numbers on the bottom. They represent beginning, intermediate, or advanced repetitions. So before you even start as the instructor, you would say, today group, you’re gonna do the blue amount. So the kids know that whenever they land on an activity, they’re gonna do the blue amount of repetitions. So you’ve got six teams moving independently, but everybody moving, everybody active at one time. Now the worst thing you can do is just lay this out and say play, because the kids are not familiar with the activities yet. So each of our skillastics activity kits include task cards, and in our instructional manuals, we have so many lead up games and activities that will familiarize the kids with the activities prior to play. Now each of our skillastics activity kits come in these convenient carriage bags. Very easy to store, very easy to transport. This is the foundation of the Skillastics program and all the variations that are a part of it.
