Curriculum Poster Reward System
THE FUN & FIT GYMNASTICS CURRICULUM POSTER REWARD SYSTEM
Developed here in 1985, our unique teaching system known as the “Fun & Fit Gymnastics Curriculum Poster Reward System” creates success for children internationally since we began licensing it to hundreds of other gymnastics programs in 1991.
THE FUN & FIT GYMNASTICS ONLINE TEACHING SYSTEM
In 2013 our Founder & President, Jeff Lulla, installed our curriculum system into an online platform making it available for subscription globally as an instructor training, safety, lesson planning and skill tracking platform. Our teaching system is now in use in China, the UK, Canada, Vietnam, Australia and several other countries. It is considered a standard for teaching recreational gymnastics to children.
CREATING SUCCESS AND ACHIEVEMENT STEP BY STEP
Our Poster Reward System provides students ages 3 and older with short term and long range achievable goals. Students earn rewards for learning new skills in a safe and sequential order while parents easily monitor their child's progress. The system also serves as a foundation for structuring classes based on both age and level.
Children receive a curriculum poster when enrolling that lists the skills they will be working on. There is a different poster for each level of our program and each poster contains gymnastics skills appropriate for your child's ability level. The skills at each level have been broken down into achievable steps, so that children learn quickly and experience success often.
Once a month we have STAR WEEK, where the kids get to perform the new skills they've been learning. When students perform a skill correctly 3 times in a row for their instructor, they get that skill checked off. The following week all students who passed skills will be given stars to take home and put on their poster - a star for each skill passed.
It is our goal to acknowledge both effort and accomplishment. If young students are unable to pass a skill, they will be given a "great effort" type of sticker, which they can use to decorate their poster. They will get another chance in a few weeks to pass the skill, and the kids are often most proud of the skills they worked hardest to pass.
Once students pass all of the skills on their poster, they are invited to ring the bell, awarded a Certificate, and a photo with their instructor is taken and given to the students to place on their poster. The next level poster is provided and the learning process continues.
Parents are notified in advance of their children ringing the bell and receiving their Certificate of Achievement and photo with their Instructor. We invite all parents to share in the excitement and progress your children will experience while learning gymnastics.
We believe that the most valuable and powerful lessons we teach your children are not limited to the skills on our posters, but include;
- what it means to focus and work hard to accomplish goals
- that sometimes things you can't imagine being able to achieve become easy when you put in the effort
- that it is healthy and appropriate to experience fear or discomfort at the thought of doing something that feels risky, and that by responding to those fears by asking for help, taking it slow and in small steps, you can overcome those fears instead of giving up or quitting.
We see our curriculum as an important tool to achieve our Mission in the work we do with children. To learn more about our Mission Statement click HERE.
