Sport is an important learning environment for childrenby JBM Global Teacher There is nothing in life that bestows children an opportunity to develop positive character traits and to soak up many quality values as sports does. Most parents wish to encourage their children to play sports to help them feel valued. Every child can be successful at one sport or another. However, it takes time for parents to find the sport suitable for their child. Therefore, they should be patient in selecting the sport, since it is a process that will pay off in the long run.
The quintessence of sports is to unite all the people worldwide, regardless of their social background, financial status and the country they come from. As long as a child is involved in sports activities, he/he is in the world where he/she tries to be as best as he/she can be.
Kids’ character and moral principles are formed through fair play. Playing sports enables children to create friendships they otherwise might not have formed. Sports bring people together from all over the world, regardless of their nationality, religion, culture, or skin color. Teamwork and benefits of social interaction among children are best seen in sports. They view competitions on and off the field as opportunities to learn from their success and failure. Children learn to respect authority, rules, team colleagues and opponents.
.Sports experiences help building positive self- esteem in children.
When children learn positive life lessons through sports, there is no doubt they become honest, reliable adults who try to help others in need at any moment. The child should first get used to sports, accept it and get to like it so that it can become a part of his and her everyday life. As kids grow up, we expect them to learn to control their emotions especially the negative ones and sports channel them the right way. According to Jean Zimmerman and Gil Reavill, authors of "Raising Our Athletic Daughters”, promoting physical activity should start from the nursery room. This is taken very seriously and fondly by our best Nursery schools of Noida. The school age children should have access to sports and games as not only does it empower youth and promote higher self-esteem but it also motivates students and enables them to earn better grades, especially in schools where obtaining certain grades is a pre-requisite to stay in the team. This is where School In Noida are working relentlessly.
Children should be active every day as physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health. Research shows that the importance of physical activity in children is stronger than ever. There are observations that highly active children are less likely to suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer of the colon, obesity, and coronary heart disease later in life. Health is the foremost concern for any primary school especially in Noida Expressway and all the schools are working hard on it.
We all know that exercise is known to relieve stress and some children experience as much stress, depression, and anxiety as adults do. Because exercise improves health, a fit child is more likely to be well-rested and mentally sharp. Even moderate physical activity has been shown to improve a child’s skill at arithmetic, reading, and memorization. Sport, not just exercise, gives a child more than just physical well-being. It contributes to a child’s development both psychologically and socially. Sport psychologist Dr. Glyn Roberts of the University of Illinois has worked primarily in children’s sport for the last two decades. He emphasizes that sport is an important learning environment for children.
As a good coach understands that negative emotional stress hurts performance, this piece of wisdom is ingrained as the child will be better equipped to tackle a whole range of other life challenges. “Sport can affect a child’s development of self-esteem and self-worth,” explains Roberts. “It is also within sport that peer status and peer acceptance is established and developed.” A way children gain acceptance by their peers is to be good at activities valued by other children. Research also shows that children rather love to play sports than do anything else. High school boys and girls are at sports than in academic subjects. And they would rather fail in class than be incompetent on the playing field. As sport is important to children, being good at sports is a strong social asset. Young boys use sports and games to measure themselves against their friends and children who are competent at sports are more easily accepted by children of their own age, and are more likely to be team captains and group leaders. Such children usually have better social skills. School in Noida Expressway are bringing out the best of sports skills in the children and making them work hard and hone their skills. We also take this opportunity to invite all the children from walking age till under 10 to partake in “AAHWAN” sports carnival that has had 9 successful seasons between Nov 6 – Nov 17, 2017 and on the eve of children’s day on Sunday Nov 12, 2017 9 AM onwards for all the children.
