Teaching Children Gymnastics

 Second Edition.

By Peter H. Werner.

This book shows teachers how to use an innovative and individualized approach to teaching gymnastics skills and how to link those skills into sequences. It has been expanded to present 30 child-tested examples of gymnastics activities (called learning experiences) that are ideal for children in kindergarten through grade 6. The learning experiences are divided into three skill themes: traveling, statics, and rotation.
The appendix contains ready-to-copy forms - including a gymnastics report card, task cards, a student certification form, and handouts for sequencing skills and creating routines - that you can use as is or customize to your own needs. An annotated suggested readings list provides you with a ready resource for expanding your understanding and skills related to develomentally appropriate gymnastics.
