Outbound Kids Games in Early Childhood Learning: A Study of Gross Motor Skills
Keywords:Early childhood, Gross Motor Skills, Outbound Kids Games
This research is motivated by the issue indicating the low development of gross motor skills in early childhood at the Siti Khodijah Majalengka Playgroup. This is manifested by several children who have not been able to efficiently coordinate body movements to train flexibility, balance, and agility. Additionally, the children have not been able to coordinate eye-hand-foot-head movements when imitating dances and gymnastics, and they are still unskilled in using their right and left hands. The research method employed in this study is pre-experimental. The research population consists of 30 students, with a sample size of 15 students. The results of the research demonstrate that there is an improvement in the gross motor skill development of students after implementing the outbound kids' game. This is further reinforced by the analysis using descriptive statistics, which indicates a positive change in the gross motor skill development of the students. Furthermore, the analysis using inferential statistics also reveals a significant difference between the average pretest and posttest scores of the students. Thus, it can be concluded that the outbound kids' game has a positive impact on enhancing the gross motor skill development of children at the Siti Khodijah Majalengka Playgroup.
