Developing competence and confidence in gross and fine motor skills provides a foundation for participation in physical activities.
2.5.P.A.1 Develop and refine gross motor skills (e.g., hopping, galloping, jumping, running, and marching).                                                                                                              
2.5.P.A.2 Develop and refine fine motor skills (e.g., completes gradually more complex puzzles, uses smaller-sized manipulatives during play, and uses a variety of writing instruments in a conventional manner).                                                                                                              
2.5.P.A.3 Use objects and props to develop spatial and coordination skills (e.g., throws and catches balls and Frisbees, twirls a hula-hoop about the hips, walks a balance beam, laces different sized beads, and buttons and unbuttons).

Understanding of fundamental concepts related to effective execution of actions provides the foundation for participation in games, sports, dance, and recreational activities.
2.5.2.A.1 Explain and perform movement skills with developmentally appropriate control in isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) and applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities).                                                                                                              
2.5.2.A.2 Demonstrate changes in time, force, and flow while moving in personal and general space at different levels, directions, ranges, and pathways.                                                                                                              
2.5.2.A.3 Respond in movement to changes in tempo, beat, rhythm, or musical style.                                                                                                              
2.5.2.A.4 Correct movement errors in response to feedback.

Understanding of fundamental concepts related to effective execution of actions provides the foundation for participation in games, sports, dance, and recreational activities.
2.5.4.A.1 Explain and perform essential elements of movement skills in both isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) and applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities).                                                                                                              
2.5.4.A.2 Use body management skills and demonstrate control when moving in relation to others, objects, and boundaries in personal and general space.                                                                                                              
2.5.4.A.3 Explain and demonstrate movement sequences, individually and with others, in response to various tempos, rhythms, and musical styles.                                                                                                              
Ongoing feedback impacts improvement and effectiveness of movement actions.
2.5.4.A.4 Correct movement errors in response to feedback and explain how the change improves performance.                                                                                                              
6
Understanding of fundamental concepts related to effective execution of actions provides the foundation for participation in games, sports, dance, and recreational activities.
2.5.6.A.1 Explain and perform movement skills that combine mechanically correct movement in smooth flowing sequences in isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) and applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities).                                                                                                              
2.5.6.A.2 Explain concepts of force and motion and demonstrate control while modifying force, flow, time, space, and relationships in interactive dynamic environments.                                                                                                              
2.5.6.A.3 Create and demonstrate planned movement sequences, individually and with others, based on tempo, beat, rhythm, and music (creative, cultural, social, and fitness dance).                                                                                                              
Performing movement skills effectively is often based on an individual’s ability to analyze one’s own performance as well as receive constructive feedback from others.
2.5.6.A.4 Use self-evaluation and external feedback to detect and correct errors in one’s movement performance.                                                                                                              
8
Movement skill performance is primarily impacted by the quality of instruction, practice, assessment, feedback, and effort.
2.5.8.A.1 Explain and demonstrate the transition of movement skills from isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) into applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities).                                                                                                              
2.5.8.A.2 Apply the concepts of force and motion (weight transfer, power, speed, agility, range of motion) to impact performance.                                                                                                              
2.5.8.A.3 Create, explain, and demonstrate, as a small group, a planned movement sequence that includes changes in rhythm, tempo, and musical style (creative, cultural, social, and fitness dance).                                                                                                              
2.5.8.A.4 Detect, analyze, and correct errors and apply to refine movement skills.                                                                                                              
12
Movement skill performance is primarily impacted by the quality of instruction, practice, assessment, feedback, and effort.
2.5.12.A.1 Explain and demonstrate ways to transfer movement skills from one game, sport, dance, or recreational activity to another (e.g., striking skills from/to tennis, badminton, ping pong, racquetball).                                                                                                              
2.5.12.A.2 Analyze application of force and motion (weight transfer, power, speed, agility, range of motion) and modify movement to impact performance.                                                                                                              
2.5.12.A.3 Design and lead a rhythmic activity that includes variations in time, space, force, flow, and relationships (creative, cultural, social, and fitness dance).                                                                                                              
2.5.12.A.4 Critique a movement skill/performance and discuss how each part can be made more interesting, creative, efficient, and effective.
