Elementary school physical educators looking for expert guidance in designing lessons that are aligned with SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes need look no further.
Lesson Planning for Elementary Physical Education works in tandem with SHAPE America’s National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education and The Essentials of Teaching Physical Education to provide the knowledge base and practical strategies for creating high-quality elementary physical education curricula.
Written by master teachers and edited by the team who oversaw the creation of the National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes, Lesson Planning for Elementary Physical Education is endorsed by SHAPE America. The text has the following features:
• 65 lessons that foster the achievement of physical literacy for children in grades K-5
• Numerous learning experiences that engage students in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains
• Curriculum design based on student growth
• Sequential lessons leading to mature patterns of motor performance
• An introductory chapter on the key points for the grade span, putting the lessons in context and providing a road map for planning curriculum, units, and lessons
• Instruction on creating high-quality lessons that reach the desired objectives
Teachers can use the lessons as presented or modify them to meet local needs. The lessons provide a structure for teachers to follow in developing their own learning experiences and curricula. For PE majors and minors, the lessons provide the ideal starting point in learning how to plan and deliver effective lessons to become proficient teachers, not just managers of activity. In addition, all lessons and learning experiences reflect best practices in instruction and include scripted cues.
The text shows readers how to effectively develop their own lessons—and teachers can use those lessons to show their administrators that their program is designed to meet the specific outcomes developed by SHAPE America.
Lesson Planning for Elementary Physical Education is supported by a web resource that contains digital versions of all the lesson plans in the book. Teachers can access the lesson plans through a mobile device, and they can download the plans to use later or to print.
Overview of Contents
Part I of the text offers readers a solid foundation in lesson planning. The authors explore the elements of planning lessons for student learning, show how to meet the National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes, and guide readers in making the most of every lesson. In part II, readers have access to K-5 lesson plans in health-related fitness, movement concepts, locomotor skills, nonlocomotor skills, and manipulative skills for elementary physical education.
Each lesson corresponds to a category of the outcomes. In addition, the lessons provide deliberate, progressive practice tasks and integrate appropriate assessments for evaluating and monitoring student progress and growth.
Great for Current and Future Elementary Teachers
Lesson Planning for Elementary Physical Education offers teachers the tools and resources they need in order to guide students toward physical literacy and physically active lifestyles throughout their adult lives. And it does so by aligning with SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes. As such, this is a great resource for both current and future elementary physical education and classroom teachers.

This book is very beneficial to my PE Methods class. The way it is scoped and sequenced was great. I strongly encourage this book if you follow the National Standards.
