Physical literacy like you’ve never seen it before
Guest Blog Post
Integrated Learning Strategies (ILS) is a learning and academic center. As a reminder, ILS is not a health care provider and none of our materials or services provide a diagnosis or treatment of a specific condition or learning challenge you may see in your child or student. If you seek a diagnosis or treatment for your child or student, please contact a trained professional who can provide an evaluation of the child.
We’ll admit that the term “physical literacy” is a bit of a mouthful. When we use the phrase with parents who’ve never heard it before, they tend to furrow their brows and cock their heads as they work out what it means.
It’s true that when we’ve explained what physical literacy is, each and every one of those parents has a lightbulb go off. We can see it as they raise their eyebrows in understanding, and say, “Oh, yeah, that makes sense.”
And now we can help that happen even easier with this simple infographic that lays out clearly just what goes into developing physical literacy.
Embedded in the infographic is an explanatory video, created by the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association (OPHEA), as well as links to the Active for Life resources and activities sections.
And you can download the infographic as a printable poster (in two sizes) to put on your fridge or give to your child’s teacher to hang in the classroom.
Active for Life is a non-profit organization committed to helping parents raise happy, healthy, physically literate kids. For more articles like this one, please visit Activeforlife.com.
