THE FUNDAMENTAL BODY MOVEMENTS

•It is the building blocks that is necessary for more complex physical
activities.
•Playing sports, exercising, and dancing [all require a command of
simple, fundamental body movements.]

BODY MOVEMENTS
3. Manipulative
What is Locomotor?
LOCOMOTOR MOVEMENTS
•It refers to body movements that move the body from one place to
another.
•There are eight main locomotor movements.
• They are categorized as either even or uneven movements.
Even rhythm movements consist of equal, unvarying actions. These
movements include:
Walking, Running, Hopping, Leaping, Jumping
Locomotor
Hop is technically defined as a springing from one foot and landing
on that same foot.
A leap is a springing from one foot but landing on the other foot.
Leaping movements are commonly used when people jump over
objects, like jumping over a rain puddle.
Uneven rhythm movements consist of unequal actions.
They also sometimes incorporate alternating actions.
These movements include:
•Skipping
•Galloping
•Sliding
Gallop is defined as stepping forward and pushing up with one foot,
while the other foot follows.
Slide is similar, but the lead foot glides forward or sideward while the
other foot follows. The lead foot does not step or push off into the air.
Sliding movements are used in skating and skiing.
What is Nonlocomotor
Movements?
Nonlocomotor Movements
•Also called axial movements
•They are movements of certain body parts, or even the whole body,
without causing the body to travel.
Example, swinging your arms back and forth.
Notice that nonlocomotor movements are often combined with
locomotor movements, such as walking and swinging your arms.
Bending, Flexing, Stretching, Extending, Lifting, Raising, Twisting,
Rotating, Swinging, Swaying, Turning and Shaking
What is Manipulative
Movements?
Manipulative Movements
•involve moving or using an object with the hands or feet to achieve a
goal or complete a task.
• For fine motor skills, that object might be a pencil or button.
•For gross motor skills, the object might be sporting equipment or
toys such as bats, balls, racquets, or jump ropes.
•These skills are also sometimes called object-control skills.
Manipulative Movements
•Pushing and pulling (the object might be a wheeled toy)
•Lifting
•Striking (such as swinging a baseball bat or golf club to hit a ball)
•Throwing
•Kicking or rolling (a ball)
Manipulative Movements
•Volleying (a ball back and forth to another person, either with the
hands or a racquet)
•Bouncing
•Catching
•Dribbling (moving a ball with the feet, as in soccer)
•Activities like pencil tracing, stacking coins, and playing checkers, by
contrast, require fine motor skills.
