Homeschool Physical Education
Foster a healthy attitude toward exercise.
Often, when it comes to physical education, the emphasis is placed on performance and skill, not lifestyle. But, children need to understand that a healthy lifestyle means engaging in regular exercise. And, to increase their chances of readily including activity as a part of their life, positive associations with exercise have to be developed. The parent should design a physical education curriculum that includes exercise activities that the child views as enjoyable and which are within the child's skill level to prevent discouragement; yet, they need to be challenging to develop a healthy body.
Teach the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health benefits associated with regular exercise.
Exercise can improve concentration and academic performance, decrease stress levels, boost energy levels, and enhance self-image.
Improve the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health of the child.
Prevention against chronic diseases in adulthood, such as heart disease and osteoporosis, begins in childhood. Incorporating physical activity into the homeschooled child's curriculum is an important step towards protection against these health conditions.
Develop motor skills and movement patterns associated with various physical activities.
