-Offer 35 creative games and activities suitable for children ages 5 to 12 with and without disabilities

-Develop balance, improve fitness, and build locomotor, manipulative, and other skills

-Facilitate low-cost or no-cost activities that use common equipment

-Use step-by-step instructions and teaching tips to easily implement the activities

Kids love to move—especially when that movement is connected with searching for hidden things, collecting objects, and completing tasks that change the appearance of something. All Active: 35 Inclusive Physical Activities offers ways to get children moving and develop skills by setting fun and challenging goals for them to achieve.

Packed with new, creative ideas for facilitating games, All Active offers not just lesson plans but a framework that shows how to use equipment in fun game situations. The games are developmentally appropriate for children ages 5 to 12 years with and without disabilities. Each activity can be customized and adapted, allowing teachers and recreation leaders to use different equipment and adjust the level of difficulty as they create the most meaningful and purposeful setting for their students. The activities can be used in small groups, in a large class, or as stations. An activity finder at the beginning of the book helps teachers and leaders find game ideas.

The book includes 37 photos and diagrams to help teachers and leaders see how to set up the activities, and dozens of practical tips make the activities easy to implement. Each activity comes with clear instructions and provides information on objectives, equipment needs, setup, and game play. The “Teacher Tips” at the end of each activity offer suggestions for adapting the game for children with disabilities as well as ways to make the game more or less challenging.

Chapter 1 offers a variety of cardiorespiratory activities that also involve the practice of locomotor movement. Chapter 2 provides creative ideas for practicing skills that involve object control, such as throwing, kicking, striking, shooting, and dribbling a ball. In chapter 3, balance and coordination activities will help children work on static balance, body control, and body awareness. Chapter 4 contains games that combine a range of fitness-related skills.

All Active: 35 Inclusive Physical Activities will provide teachers and recreation leaders with practical and effective ideas to teach and practice basic motor skills. And it will help kids find purpose—and joy—in movement!

"Most women would not be pleased to be labeled a spinster. But Lady Poppy Smith-Barnes isn't most women. In fact, Poppy has invented an imaginary fianc?, the Duke of Drummond, to deter unwanted suitors. A very useful fellow, this duke, until the real Drummond turns up and uses Poppy's ploy to trap her in a betrothal. "A good spy flies below the radar. Which is why being named one of the Prince Regent's 'Impossible Bachelors' is so inconvenient for Nicholas Staunton. Every society female will be out to ensnare him. Nicholas needs a fianc?e--and Poppy's ruse is the answer. How could he have known she'd be a brazen, sensual siren with an irresistible taste for adventure? Now nothing less will do than to convince his fiery Poppy to revoke her spinster status...for good."--from cover, p. 4.… (more)
