Plan: In the “Plan” period, a Kiddie CATs teacher reviews the program rules; highlights a weekly motor skill; reviews the activities for the day; introduces and models use of new equipment, skills, rules, or concepts; and reviews the directions for the first “Do” activity.
Do: The primary goal of the four, 5-minute "Do" periods is to keep children engaged in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity by using activities from the program manual.
Review: “Review” periods are after “Do” periods and provide Kiddie CATs teachers with opportunities to provide children with praise, feedback, and directions for the next “Do” period. The first three “Review” periods are one minute in duration, but the final period lasts two minutes. During this final "review period," Kiddie CATs teachers and children talk about the importance of physical activity while stretching as a group.
