Guiding principles to facilitate movement: The 5Es
Learning movement skills occur naturally when children interact with the environment and the world around them (e.g., with others, in the classroom, outdoors, playground).
Creating exciting and positive movement experiences for preschoolers is easier than one may think. By adopting an approach that puts the child at the centre and taking on the role of facilitators, educators can guide preschoolers towards meaningful movement experiences. Based on learner-centred approaches, the 5Es empowers educators to design effective movement lessons.
