Abstract
Early childhood has excessive energy that needs to be dispensed exactly, one of them is by involving physical activities. Gross motor is an important part of the growth process and ultimately plays a role in one's ability to lead a physically active life, one active learning model involving children is fantasy gymnastic. Fantasy gymnastic is a form of imitating gym that can be composed using motion and song or story. The empirical finding indicates that the children's motor physical learning is mostly focused on fine motor development, while the gross motor is less noticeable. Gross motor activity in schools is mostly too focused on indicators and lacks development on these indicators. Learning also tends to be less varied (monotonous) as well as minimal media and rarely integrates into a fun game. This results children easily to feel bored and difficult to be managed because their energy is not maximally dispensed when the learning goes on. The purpose of this study is to describe that fantasy gymnastic is as an active and imaginative model of gross motor learning. The research was quantitative quasi-experimental method using pre-test and post-test approach with one group design on 24 children, gymnastic following the motion and song that had been arranged by teacher in the form of VCD and played through tape recorder. The result shows that the fantasy gymnastic is effective to boost the children's gross motor into 54.2%. The fantasy gymnastic learning model gives a significant influence on the gross motor skills of early childhood as well as makes the learning process more active and imaginative.
