It’s October and classes are getting into full swing! Just wondering what are people doing to integrate movement into the classroom so far?
Purposeful movement breaks, even if a couple of minutes long, can help reset a student or even a whole classroom. They can also prevent behaviors, boost mood, boost energy, and get the brain ready for learning.
Just a few examples:
-Tabata High Intensity Intervals (with music and choices for exercises: squats, push ups, planks, jumping jacks, lunges, squat jumps, bear walk, bunny hops,…the choices are endless)
-Active Stretching (reaching to up and over to sides, trunk twists, windmill reaching for opposite toes…)
-get all staff involved with the movements if able
