Closet of Ideas - Classroom Activity Breaks

Sara Roepka,   Haven Grade School
Physical Activity Participation
We have started a closet that has materials and equipment in it for teachers to check out and use in their classrooms for activity breaks and/or indoor recess activities. Teachers can check them out whenever they want and it has many ideas that will help students get more active in the classroom especially on those rainy or snowy days when they can not go outside for recess.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Our goal is to make it an Olympic-like challenge and the class and teacher that does the best at including PA breaks will be rewarded at the end of the year.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Our biggest challenge is time of teaching the teachers the activities and what is available and getting them totally on board of the importance of doing them on a REGULAR basis.
