Summer is Here! Get Moving!

Summer is almost here, and outdoor play will be keeping your young ones busy. There's no better time than now to review the POCETâ„¢ developmental guidelines for Physical Health and Safety . Under Motor Skills, you will find the following:

PH1: Demonstrates eye-hand coordination.
PH2: Begins to show fine motor dexterity and control.
PH3: Demonstrates balance and control during locomotor movements.
PH4: Uses large muscles to manipulate objects.

And, underneath Health and Safety, you will find:
PH5: Demonstrates independence in hygiene and nutrition.
PH6: Understands basic health and safety rules.

Look to Teacher QuickSource for activities for each of the Physical Health & Safety developmental guidelines above. Also, be sure to browse companion products for the correlating activities. Simply visit www.DiscountSchoolSupply.com/POCET and click on the age-appropriate category under Curriculum Companions to find matching products.

Finally, take a look at the Active Play category at www.DiscountSchoolSupply.com for inspiration on more summertime activities - and get going!
