The Rhythm Fit modules will be an on-going series of routines set to music using a variety of equipment. These activities provide an opportunity for teachers to integrate rhythmic movement in a fun and engaging way. Students will be asked to use social and emotional strategies to create a positive learning environment. In order to help your students’ progress through this module, keep the environment fun while also maintaining high expectations for learning.
As physical educators, one of our objectives is to encourage students to use physical activities as vehicles for self-expression. Learning how to move to a rhythmic beat is ultimately a journey of self-expression. Perfecting every step is not what is important. Personal enjoyment, social engagement, and having an appreciation for all movement forms will teach and reinforce skills and concepts while keeping the magic of movement alive.
