Physical Activity Participation

Along with adding in-class physical activity breaks (brain breaks), we also began a before-school workout club called SpearsFit to increase student alertness, attentiveness, physical activity and productivity, and have seen great increases in these areas along with great decreases with behavior problems in the early part of the day.

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

Our SpearsFit is going great and I don't see any problem with keeping it going. The kids love coming early in the morning to get in a quick workout and their parents are very supportive as well, pushing their students to join the club each morning. We also have morning announcements, huddle and website reminders to keep our students excited about joining the club each morning.
