I haven’t read the book by J. D. Hughes, as yet. But the title … I like it!
Keep all students in your physical education program moving, learning, and on their toesâ€”even when youâ€™re teaching very large classes.
This ready-to-use guide is packed with 6 units, 70 games, 15 hints, and 39 special game variations for teaching even the largest of classes.
If you are looking for fresh ways to teach children ages 4 to 11 basic fitness concepts, movement skills, and games that emphasize creative thinking and cooperation, No Standing Around in My Gym is for you. Itâ€™s an incredible source of ideas and solutions to help you
â€¢ increase the time students are active in class,
â€¢ minimize discipline problems,
â€¢ develop healthy attitudes that lead to a lifetime of activity,
â€¢ save valuable lesson preparation time, and
â€¢ keep students motivated and challenged.
The book provides complete descriptions, nearly 200 illustrations, and proven plans to make the units and games easy to teach. Itâ€™s the ideal resource for busy teachers with little time in the day to think of new ideas or develop lesson plans from scratch.
There are very few good books on gymnastics games and activities. This adds to that limited literature.
