Pre-K Chant
I made a simple chant that my Pre-K kids use in the gym. It encourages and reminds them to be active throughout the day.

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

By reciting the chant daily, the students are actively engaging in play with a mnemonic device. I have heard the children at recess, as well, reciting the chant. I hope that the chant will stick with the kids for many years to come, encouraging them to be active daily.

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

Our site is ages three to five. On average, we only have the students for one year. We have to instill the love of exercise early and reinforce it daily. All of this is in hopes "it sticks."

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students know automatically, after snack to go to the gym. They sit at half court, we recite the chant, then we get ACTIVE!
