Preschool children need well-balanced amounts of stimulation, circulation and connection to develop optimal learning and performance capabilities. Experience four of the most simple, sensible and powerful strategies to help fuel the passion, energy and motivation that helps children best express the best of who they are to become in this world.
Children will develop the majority of their fundamental motor skills and attitudes about physical activity between the ages of 2-10. Through repetition and a progressive sequence of developmentally appropriate activities, a child can easily build the strength, balance, endurance, character, confidence and coordination they need to develop above average physical abilities. This workshop will introduce you to a simple 5-step format of activities to share with your children.
Music activates listening, movement stimulates learning and language let’s us communicate the results. Each is dependent on the other. Learn how to effectively combine the developmental elements of these disciplines and provide your children a logical sequence of activities to build a foundation for optimal learning, performance and thinking abilities!
Children can learn to do pretty much anything they want if they’re shown the simple steps that can lead them there. Discover what you can do with simple stuff like balls, bean bags, pieces of foam, hoops, ropes, paper plates, and sticks to help your children develop the intelligences and skills they need to become as physically competent as they can be!
Young children love to use their imagination in almost everything they do. Learn how you can keep them engaged in purposeful physical activity through the ancient art of storytelling. This workshop offers a variety of proven ideas and techniques to help you incorporate a progressive sequence of developmentally appropriate skill building activities into simple stories and adventures for preschool to early elementary aged children.
Looking for practical, effective and gentle strategies for turning those annoying, negative behavioral traits into more frequent acts of consideration and cooperation? Learn how to use proven disciplinary techniques with movement and music activities to train your children to adhere to the two basic rules of society – Be Nice and Be Safe!
Looking for active, effective and playful methods for teaching letter recognition, pronunciation and simple spelling? The Funsical – Groove and Greet, Vocalrobics and Simple Steps programs make pre-literacy activities fun and worth striving for.
Don’t let your stress take you take to an early grave. Learn how this four step martial arts reaction technique mixed with some Silly-cise is guaranteed to keep you cool, calm and collected in the midst of the havoc, madness and commotion of life’s most difficult moments.

General Comments from the National Wellness Conference,
Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Our lead teacher’s written evaluations showed that they found this workshop to be upbeat, fun, developmentally appropriate and extremely practical. They repeatedly mentioned that purchasing the books, tapes, and CD’s enabled them to apply the new ideas in the classroom the very next day. They like learning why movement is important and the research that supports it. They learned how to teach, not just what to teach. They look forward to seeing if inappropriate classroom behaviors will be reduced with the addition of this program.
I know the program is something we will continue in our preschool curriculum. The staff at High Plains preschool recommends Funsical Fitness to all who really care about the physical development of children.
Scott presented his Silly-cise, Grinnastics, chuckle jamming and many other Funsical activities to our children’s librarians and THEY LOVED It! They loved the unique approach to storytelling and our children’s librarians are using them in their storytelling circles. The kids can’t get enough of it.
Thanks for the wonderful program and innovative approach to our library story times. I am delighted to let other libraries know this.
I would like to thank Scott for the wonderful and most useful ideas to incorporate into our children’s library programs. I would highly recommend this workshop to all children’s librarians.
I think of Scott and all his crazy antics, and touching words of wisdom and I can’t help but smile. Funsical is sure to tug at the heart strings and tickle the funny bones of all who experience it.
You presentation at the Yakima Valley Association for the Education of Young Children was outstanding. You are truly an example of how professionals can demonstrate dedication toward continuing to improve the lives of young children and their families.
The workshop was exactly what I was looking for in a movement/music class. There were so many ideas I will be able to bring back to the classroom.
