  • Our comprehensive approach– Lesson plans; training videos, newsletters and teaching tips are all online and included with purchase of curriculum. Staff Development and Training Workshops are available for additional fees. Call 1-888-609-1119.
  • Our desire to make teaching quality physical education, activity, and fitness easy and FUN for everyone.
  • Tandalay Curriculum is the brain-child of Tami Phillips, MS., Kinesiology. An instructor at California State University, Fresno, she teaches the college course “PE for Children” and recognizes the need for an effective solution for educators. Tami has extensive background in the fitness industry and brings fitness, standards, and FUN together with a comprehensive program filled with PLAY.
  • Tandalay’s solution is simple. Every aspect of our program is designed to ensure that:
    1. Instructors do not need to spend additional time in preparation.
    2. It is FUN so that all want to participate.
    3. ALL players feel successful and enjoy enhanced self-esteem.
    4. Lessons do not entail a lot of set-up and multiple pieces of equipment for a single lesson.
    5. It is easy to implement. Tandalay is presented in a point-click-and-play format that anyone, from a high school student to a physical education specialist, can use to teach quality physical education, activities, and fitness.
  • Our curriculum is available online and users are able to print out lessons or units. Binders can be purchased from our online store.
  • At Tandalay we keep evolving and improving our lesson plans, video library, newsletters, and assessment software. Your subscription includes all updates and new features.
  • Every lesson has a warm-up, four activities, and a cool down. Activities have no specific time designation. Play as long as everyone is having FUN! But remember to stop BEFORE the enthusiasm does. Generally there are more than enough activities and games in each lesson for an hour or more of play.
  • In physical education we believe more is better. Pick and play your favorites for the day, extend your lesson over two days, or use for a full hour or two of after-school recreation fun!
  • For each developmental level (K-2, 3-5, 6-8) we have 30 weeks of lesson plans.
  • With five lessons a week, and 5 activities per lesson, that gives you 150 lesson plans, or 750 games and activities per developmental level, and because there is access to all developmental levels, there is total of 450 lesson plans and over 2,250 games and activities.
  • With your subscription you have access to all of them!
  • Each unit requires just a few pieces of equipment to keep setup quick and easy. We recommend purchasing the Basic Bundle (or Bare Essentials or Bonsai Bundle – each designed to meet your budgetary needs) for every single teacher. Our Bundles include easy-to-store, functional equipment that can be used indoors or out for literally thousands of activities.
  • In order to meet all standards and fully utilize the Tandalay Curriculum, schools may opt to purchase the equipment included in Sports Pack. Sports Packs can be purchased from US-Games or from GL Sports with a separate purchase order. The equipment is put together and ready to order.
  • Fluffilos, Tandanas, high energy music CDs and Move Your Body and Work Your Body card decks are available for individual purchase.
  • Gotta-Getta Fluffilo! What is a Fluffilo™? A Fluffilo™ is a large, fluffy, brightly- colored yarn ball. It is softer and less dense than a fleece ball, making it easier to catch and throw, leading to increased success and confidence.
  • We recommend a classroom set of the Basic (Bare Essentials or Bonsai) Bundle for every instructor. These easy-to-store bundles provide instant fun – indoors or out – for the whole year!
  • We recommend at least one grade level set of the Sports Pack. Instructors may prefer to share between classes due to storage issues.
  • A Fluffilo™ is a large, fluffy, brightly- colored yarn ball. It is softer and less dense than a fleece ball, making it easier to catch and throw, which leads to increased success and confidence.
  • Fluffilo sets are sold in combinations of 1-dozen different balls, which include six solid colors, and six mixed-color combinations. Great for setting up groups, partners, and teams!
  • Fluffilos create a safe, non-threatening environment in which EVERYbody feels successful, confident, and ready to PLAY!
  • Fluffilos may be special ordered in school colors. Add to your school spirit by ordering yours today from our online store.
  • Looking for a FUNdraiser? Fluffilos can be used for fund-raising at your school. Ask how!
  • All the CDs Tandalay offers are kid-friendly with appropriate lyrics and high energy rhythms.
  • Our high-energy workout CDs were developed specifically for exercise routines-there is no “lull” or “pause” in the music.
  • The Move Your Body cards consist of 50 different movement-based exercises that can be combined in any order to create workout routines, circuit workouts, or cardio combos anytime, anywhere!
  • Work Your Body card decks contain 50 different muscular conditioning exercises that require no additional equipment, and can be used to create any type of workout. Kids love to “choose” their routines and the combinations are endless!
  • Each Workout Deck includes stretching exercises and workout suggestions. Additional uses for the cards can be found in the lesson plans.
  • Tandanas are Tandalay-style, 12-color sets of bandanas.
  • Tandanas are a versatile piece of equipment with uses in many games and activities. Use them for juggling, football flags, leg ties, blindfolds, team identification, and more!
  • Each Tandana features a strong character trait along with an inspirational quote and synonyms that you can use to boost vocabulary while instilling solid life values into play and beyond.

  • Standard 3: Participates regularly in physical activity.
  • Standard 4: Achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical activity.
  • Standard 5: Exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings.
  • Standard 6: Values physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction.
  • Standard 1: Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.

The intent of this standard is development of the physical skills needed to enjoy participation in physical activities. Mastering movement fundamentals establishes a foundation to facilitate continued motor skill acquisition and gives students the capacity for successful and advanced levels of performance to  further the likelihood of participation on a daily basis. In the primary years, students develop maturity and versatility in the use of fundamental motor skills (e.g., running, skipping, throwing, striking) that are further refined, combined, and varied during the middle school years. These motor skills, now having evolved into specialized skills (e.g., specific dance step, chest pass, catching with a glove, or the use of a specific tactic), are used in increasingly complex movement environments through the middle school years. (NASPE)

  • Standard 2: Demonstrates understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply to the learning and performance of physical activities.

Learn More

The intent of this standard is facilitation of learners’ ability to use cognitive information to understand and enhance motor skill acquisition and performance. It enhances the ability to use the mind to control or direct one’s performance. This includes, for example, increasing force production through the summation of forces, knowing the effects of anxiety on performance, and understanding the principle of specificity of training. Knowledge of these concepts and principles and of how to apply them enhances the likelihood of independent learning and therefore more regular and effective participation in physical activity. In the lower elementary grades, emphasis is placed on establishing a movement vocabulary and applying introductory concepts. Through the upper elementary and middle school years, an emphasis is placed on applying and generalizing these concepts to real-life physical activity situations. (NASPE)

  • Standard 3: Exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings.

Learn More

The intent of this standard is achievement of self-initiated behaviors that promote personal and group success in activity settings. These include safe practices, adherence to rules and procedures, etiquette, cooperation and teamwork, ethical behavior, and positive social interaction. Key to this standard is developing respect for individual similarities and differences through positive interaction among participants in physical activity. Similarities and differences include characteristics of culture, ethnicity, motor performance, disabilities, physical characteristics (e.g., strength, size, shape), gender, age, race, and socioeconomic status. Achievement of this standard in the lower elementary grades begins with recognition of classroom rules, procedures, and safety. In the upper elementary levels, children learn to work independently, with a partner, and in small groups. Throughout elementary school, students begin to recognize individual similarities and differences and participate cooperatively in physical activity with persons of diverse characteristics and backgrounds. (NASPE)

  • Standard 4: Values physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction

Learn More

The intent of this standard is development of an awareness of the intrinsic values and benefits of participation in physical activity that provides personal meaning. Physical activity provides opportunities for self-expression and social interaction and can be enjoyable, challenging, and fun. These benefits develop self-confidence and promote a positive self-image, thereby enticing people to continue participation in activity throughout the life span. Elementary children derive pleasure from movement sensations and experience challenge and joy as they sense a growing competence in movement ability. At the middle school level, participation in physical activity provides important opportunities for challenge, social interaction, and group membership, as well as opportunities for continued personal growth in physical skills and their applied settings. As a result of these intrinsic benefits of participation, students will begin to actively pursue life-long physical activities that meet their own needs. (NASPE)

  • Standard 5: Participates regularly in physical activity and achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical fitness, and b) demonstrates understanding of fitness principles and concepts.

  1. The intent of this standard is establishment of patterns of regular participation in meaningful physical activity. This standard connects what is done in the physical education class with the lives of students outside of the classroom. Although participation within the physical education class is important, what the student does outside the physical education class is critical to developing an active, healthy lifestyle that has the potential to help prevent a variety of health problems among future generations of adults. Students make use of the skills and knowledge learned in physical education class as they engage in regular physical activity outside of the physical education class. They demonstrate effective self-management skills that enable them to participate in physical activity on a regular basis. Voluntary participation often develops from the initial enjoyment that is derived from the activity coupled with the requisite skills needed for participation. As students develop an awareness of the relationships between activity and its immediate and identifiable effects on the body, regular participation in physical activity enhances the physical and psychological health of the body, social opportunities and relationships, and quality of life. Students are more likely to participate if they have opportunities to develop interests that are personally meaningful to them. Young children learn to enjoy physical activity yet also learn that a certain level of personal commitment and earnest work is required to reap the benefits from their participation. They partake in developmentally appropriate activities that help them develop movement competence and should be encouraged to participate in moderate to vigorous physical activity and unstructured play. As students get older, the structure of activity tends to increase and the opportunities for participation in different types of activity increase outside of the physical education class. Attainment of this standard encourages participation commensurate with contemporary recommendations regarding the type of activity as well as the frequency, duration, and intensity of participation believed to support and sustain good health. (NASPE)
  2. The intent of this standard is development of students’ knowledge, skills, and willingness to accept responsibility for personal fitness, leading to an active, healthy lifestyle. Students develop higher levels of basic fitness and physical competence as needed for many work situations and active leisure participation. Health-related fitness components include cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition. Expectations for improvement of students’ fitness levels should be established on a personal basis, taking into account variation in entry levels and the long-term goal of achieving health-related levels of fitness based on criterion-referenced standards. Students progress in their ability to participate in moderate to vigorous physical activities that address each component of health-related fitness. Moreover, students become more skilled in their ability to plan, perform, and monitor physical activities appropriate for developing physical fitness. For elementary children, the emphasis is on an awareness of fitness components and having fun while participating in health-enhancing activities that promote physical fitness. Middle school students gradually acquire a greater understanding of the fitness components, the ways each is developed and maintained, and the importance of each in overall fitness.
