Physical Literacy: Fundamental Skills to Enhance Learning

Professional Growth Opportunities

Are you interested in harnessing your students’ natural desire to learn through movement and play? Physical education is much more than just fitness and sports skills. Join us for an interactive practical day of learning in partnership with other educators to create a learning environment inclusive for all. Learn how to help students become physically literate citizens with strong fundamental spiritual, emotional, cognitive and physical skills for the benefit of themselves and others.

Participants will:

  • Experience fundamental movement skills activities to increase understanding of the role physical education plays in the development of the whole child: cognitive, social-emotional, physical and spiritual.
  • Explore activities focused on developing a learning environment that is welcoming, inclusive and safe.
  • Experience embedded culturally relevant practices through the lens of physical literacy.
  • Explore curriculum planning and assessment tools to support students through differentiation and responsive instruction.

Audience: K-8 educators, administrators.
