Homeschool PE Curriculum Review & Giveaway

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.

Cool! I've never thought to make PE an organized part of our school days. Sounds fun!

I would love to try this. We do great during the warm months on exercise, but could definitely use something that would make it a part of our school routine.

I would love to have a good PE curriculum, but haven't been able to afford one. Right now we just use play time as PE time, but as the boys get older (my oldest will be in 4th next year - yikes!), I know they need more structure.
We would LOVE to win this!!

I am writing a blog about free educational resources available to elementary school children on the web. I am a school teacher but many of these websites would be helpful to your parents who do homeschooling. Would you pass on the website I am just getting started and it would be great to get the word out.
