Chapter 1 (201) movement skills

Chapter 1,

   Movement skills are the main part of the development of a physical educated program. The movement skills you learn from your younger years help you to gain and progress more complex skills as you move through time. Physical education programs can develop basic skills (fundamental) at a younger age and as you grow the basic skills become more complex and then in turn you start to become a physically educated person. And to be physically educated, having the fundamental movement skills and then being able to refine them prior to specialized sports is a big aspect in achieving  the developmental level of a physical educated person.
  A lot of movement skills you learn when you are young are sometimes overlapped when you start to do more complex movement skills that can fall into the category of  locomotion, Manipulation, and stability.  And learning to move is based on acquiring increased movement skills and enhancing physical fitness through increased physical activity.Movement skills such as walking can help you become a more physical educated person as you grow older, because walking can then lead to running, and running in turn can lead to playing a recreational sport that involves more complex movement skills that are specialized and that you might not of been capable of doing at the begging of your years. And sports such as football, hockey, and or wrestling are all examples of selected specialized movement skills related to sports.
   As time goes on, developing movement skills and knowledge of such skills will enable you to become a more physical educated person. And we as teacher candidates should be aware that the movement activities children engage in, play an important role in their physical fitness as well as in movement skill learning. And it is sometimes easier to learn through movement for some children then in class room settings with no physical movement.
