Content is King

A Quality Physical Education (#QPE) program is based on four main components. 1. Fitness 2. Motor Skills 3. Social/Emotional Skills 4. Academic Content

Often times the hardest component to integrate into a program is number 4, academic content. In many ways this is the crucial component to a student that will grow into a lifelong mover. Without academic content integrated into a QPE program the students may not understand why they are doing what they are doing, or grasp the long term benefits of exercise and a healthy diet. If a student improves in fitness, motor skills, and developing socially and emotionally during school, that is great…but without a knowledge of fitness components and nutrition they may not know what to do when they get out of school…

To learn more about integrating academic content into your QPE program Click Here or email Smile@FocusedFitness.org today.

Be happy, be healthy, and always keep that smile on!
