Are you working with Pre school children ages 4 and 5? Are you confident that you are doing the correct exercises with them, and delivering your lessons in ways that maximize their learning capacity?
Let me ask you this question…
Are you aware of how quickly children’s bodies and brains develop as they grow?
Do you understand how teaching a 6-year-old fundamental movement will differ from instructing a 9-year-old – even if they’re doing the same skills?
In this video, I’m going to cover the importance of knowing the development stage your children are in. (It will help you use your golden time in the best possible way to have the most FUN and make the most difference in their lives!)
In this video, I'm going to:
- Explain why 6-9 year olds need to feel success in order to be motivated to practice, and also why it is so important to teach them self monitoring and intrinsic motivation (which is just a fancy way of saying they are motivated from “within” instead of needing to always be cheered on by their parents or coaches.
- Look at very realistic milestones for children aged 6-9 years and what we should be asking children of this age to do in terms of:
- Motor skills, Co-ordination, Attention Spans, Dexterity, Flexibility, Balance, Body Weight Exercises, Ball skills and Locomotion.
