Building Physical Education into Homeschool Curriculum

Kids have a natural inclination to move. They run, they climb, they bike. In a traditional education setting, these natural responses are built into a physical education program where children can try new activities and discover their skills and talents. For parents who home school their children, getting kids moving in an intentional program can be challenging.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming makes it easier for home school families to incorporate activity into their routine. The Club offers physical education classes geared toward home school students. These classes incorporate station work to improve motor skills, team sports involving skill development and sportsmanship, opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities and exercises, improved physical fitness and flexibility, and an active environment not based on competition.

“Homeschool P.E. is without a doubt my boys’ favorite part of our day. As a mom of four very active boys, and one daughter, I love that it gives my children a much-needed chance to burn off some energy; it also provides a social time with friends,” said Cheryl Hackett, homeschool mom.

She said that getting to class in the middle of the day can be challenging, but it serves as a great motivator for the children to get their work done before class.

Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays running from Sept. 20 – Dec. 8, 2016. Class times will be 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. for ages 5-9, and 1:15 – 2 p.m. for ages 10 and older. The cost for this program is $25, plus a $10 annual membership fee.
