Movement is Necessary
Movement is necessary for learning to occur. Don’t skip PE. Don’t skip recess. The body must act on the world around in order to receive the information that is necessary for learning to build on learning.
The Body – Children must move! When in the class, offer opportunities to use large muscle groups to reach, squat, bend and challenge their balance by standing on one foot. Modify these activities for age appropriate interest, for example older children may prefer yoga postures or noncompetitive Freeze Tag or variations of trendy cross-fit like exercises.
