IMPROVE LEARNING OUTCOMES OF FUNDAMENTAL MOTOR SKILL (WALK, RUN AND JUMP) WITH THE PLAY METHOD IN GRADE THREE STUDENTS OF NEUHEUN ACEH BESAR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The physical education learning process implemented in elementary schools is still far from being expected because it has not led to improving gross motor skills by not eliminating the element of play. By applying game models, it is hoped that you can develop gross motor skills either through games carried out in teams or individually. This study used a action research classroom with 22 participants (12 girls and 10 boys) aged 8-9 years. The data collection instrument used TGMD-2 (Test Gross Motor Development). Based on the first cycle of learning gross motor skills (walking, jumping and running) only 1 student passed, while the average test score was 60 - 62 and the lowest score was obtained by two students 55 and 57. Based on the results of cycle II 4 students get a score of 71 and 4 other students get a score between 80 - 82 and 14 other students get a score between 73 – 77. The learning method with the play approach must be designed to be more interesting, fun, easy and involve more gross motor skills (walking, running and jumping) so that students are more motivated to take part in learning. The application of learning with the play approach method is effective in improving learning outcomes for gross motor skills (walking, running and jumping). In addition, the method applied can make the learning environment more enjoy.
