Happy Wednesday all! I’m very excited for today’s post, because I get to share a review for Family Time Fitness, a complete physical education curriculum for families and homeschoolers! We had the chance to try out the Core Homeschool PE Curriculum with our kids and we had a blast!
At first, I was imagining that the curriculum would consist of a few basic activities for kids a week. Wrong! This is truly a full P.E. program. I remember doing less in a day of public school P.E. than we did in one day of this curriculum.
There are indoor activities and an outdoor activity scheduled for each day, which is great because you can use the program in any weather. We decided to head out to the driveway to try some of the Week 1 jump rope activities.
One of the first activities we did was called “Jumping the River”. You lay two jump ropes on the ground side by side and have everyone jump over the space in between. As the kids go across, you gradually increase the distance to challenge their abilities.
I think Roo may have a future as a long jumper.
After everyone “jumped the river” a few times, we took one of the jump ropes away and practiced jumping side to side over one rope on one foot. Turns out the kids need some practice on their balance and coordination. Jay jumped in to give Pooh a little coaching.
He’s got it!
And the crowd goes wild!
Along with the fun activities, the program explains how to warm up, how to cool down, how many repetitions of each exercise to perform, how many sets to do, and how long to rest in between sets. There are even demonstration videos linked within the daily plans to give parents a visual of how to perform each exercise. And the program has 220 lessons, which means it can serve as a full year’s physical fitness curriculum for kids of all ages!
