This month, our family has had the opportunity to try out the homeschool PE curriculum provided by Family Time Fitness. Family Time Fitness emails subscribers a set of 20 new lesson plans each month. Each day's lesson plan begins with a series off warm-up exercises, followed by physical activities and game play, wrapped up with a series of cool-down exercises. Each day is full of fun, whole-body games and exercises.
We found the activities to be fun, and I really liked that the activities are flexible enough where we can do them inside, outside, or take a trip to the park for a special treat. I also appreciated that you didn't need any fancy, expensive equipment. We had everything, except for jump ropes, which I was able to pick up cheaply at Wal-Mart.
When you first begin the lessons, you are provided with a physical assessment test, and I'm looking forward to see how far the girls have come along.
The curriculum includes video demos for each activity and exercise as well as daily activity email reminders and fitness/nutrition tips. The Core Physical Fitness Curriculum Level 1 includes 260 lesson plans (that's 52 weeks of 5 days worth of lessons). For just $9/month for 12 months, or a $77 one-time fee, you have access to the Core Level 1 curriculum for life.
Family Time Fitness is giving away a free subscription to one lucky family here at Taking Time for Mommy. So, if you'd like to be entered in the drawing, leave a comment below with your contact information. Also, see below to see how you can obtain extra entries!
