Why Games Class?

At Wholistic Learning Resources, we honor the natural unfolding of the developing human being, offering supplemental classes to support all that you do at home with, and for, your children. Our Movement & Games classes are rooted in this same understanding. In modern culture, organized team sports are held in high status which can cause children to think of movement only in those terms.

Our Movement classes give students basic coordination and movement skills that will help them if and when they decide to play organized sports. Depending on the grade, children will play games, do relay races or learn dances that serve to develop skills that may also be beneficial for a conventional sport.

 

Not only do our movement classes provide the opportunity to play games and have fun, they also works with their social interaction: their activity teaches them to play with each other before they play against each other, to acknowledge each other, to play safely, and to gain an appreciation for all kinds of movement. Our Games classes enable students to move fully, know who they are, and enter into a more healthy relationship with the world. Various games help develop an enhanced awareness of personal space, with clearly defined boundaries. As the children develop, these skills lay the foundation for healthy participation in other activities and organized sports.

For the upcoming WLR Fall 2017 program, Games & Movement is offered on Tuesdays in Davis and on Thursdays in Sacramento. Click here to view the class schedule pages.
