JLBC Grades K-2 Skilled Movement: Student expectations (at the end of grade 2)

Young children are very active and enjoy learning and mastering new ways to move and be active. Students achieve mature forms in the basic locomotor skills and vary how these skills are performed in relationship to changing conditions and expectations. They demonstrate smooth transitions between sequential locomotor skills. Students progress toward achieving mature form in the more complex manipulative skills (e.g., foot dribble) and complete, mature form in the less difficult manipulative skills (e.g., underhand throw). They demonstrate control in traveling, weight-bearing, and balance activities on various body parts.

They recognize physiological signs associated with participation in moderate to vigorous physical activity (e.g., sweating, fast heart rate, heavy breathing). Students at this level possess basic knowledge of the components of health-related fitness (cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition).
