Promoting Physical Activity and Health in the Classroom by Robert P. Pangrazi, Aaron Beighle, Deb Pangrazi

Promoting Physical Activity and Health in the Classroom responds to the growing trend in K-6 education, where classroom teachers with no specific Physical Education training must increasingly implement activities in nontraditional settings-often with limited space, equipment, time, and planning. The text is colorful, engaging, compact, and user-friendly. Its practical organization, combined with detachable, sortable index-size cards comprising more than 260 separate activities, enables teachers to implement them immediately and provides a unique resource not previously available to instructors.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
