Building Physical Literacy Through Montessori
Presented by: Barbara Murphy, Martin Yaconis
For: Early Childhood, Elementary I, and Elementary II Teachers and Administrators
CPD hours: 1.5

In Montessori, movement is a cornerstone of learning. Given current life styles that support sedentarism, as well as restrictions imposed by the pandemic, physical activity is now more important than ever. In this presentation, we will examine the concept of “physical literacy,” delving into different fundamental physical skills that set the foundation for an active lifestyle, supporting whole-child development and well-being. We will further explore how the building of physical literacy can be integrated into the learning experience in a truly Montessori manner.
