We Like to Move It, Move It!!!!

- Physical Activity Participation
Our school has made a conscious effort to get students moving throughout the day, rain or shine. We have implemented a new program that allows students to get up and exercise for every half hour of learning. Teachers are using short YouTube workout videos, GoNoodle, and many other programs to get quick movements from the students. However, many of the activities the students are participating in are tied directly to the daily lesson by the classroom teachers. For example, multiplication facts combined with core exercises. Students do crunches for whatever the answer is. Students believe that so far this program has been a success as they enjoy the movement and the cognitive thinking process that increases from their workouts in the classroom.
