Objective of the study was to identify the peculiarities of integration of cognitive and motor activities affecting the formation in preschoolers of motivation for physical practices.
Methods and structure of the study. The educational experiment was carried out at the premises of Municipal Budgetary Preschool Educational Institution Pre-Kindergarten – Kindergarten "Raduga" in Kolomna city. The sampling was divided into the Control (CG) and Experimental (EG) Groups, 25 children each. We developed a methodology of using N. Zaitsev’s cubes during physical education classes for preschool children of senior and preparatory groups (5-7 years).
Results of the study and conclusions. Integration of physical education with reading practices leads to the development of children’s imagination and creativity during motor activity, improves their ability to work in a team, enhances phonemic perception. It also contributes to the mastery of coherent speech and enlarges vocabulary. Integration of cognitive and motor activities of preschoolers in physical education facilitates an effective solution to both health-related and educational problems. This approach contributes to the formation in preschoolers of motivation for physical education classes, as well as increases the effectiveness of development of general learning and reading skills. Motivation is formed when physical education classes arouse vivid interest of preschoolers in learning material and when the set goal is achieved by a child. Intense motor activity strengthens health, contributes to the versatile development of children.

Keywords: preschoolers, physical education process, new approaches and innovative technologies.
