Product Description
Exercise to Review Any Short Story or Novel

Use physical exercise as a motivator to engage students in active review of novel or short story and help prepare them for test assessment. This exercise review includes pictures of teenagers doing yoga poses and traditional exercises to get students out of their seats and moving.

The powerpoint presentation can be used in:
• whole group instruction
• small group instruction
• task cards production
• wall posters of exercises
• centers
• bonus work or individual extra credit.

This is a great activity to use on days before holidays, school breaks, end-of-semester activities or finals week.

Students will think about and discuss thirteen questions that can relate to ANY novel or short story. A review worksheet is included in PDF and Word docx. An exit pass is also included in PDF or Word docx for students to evaluate their experience.

Exercises in the powerpoint include:
Warm Up Lotus Mediation sitting:
Pose of tree
Pose of Warrior
Pose of Triangle
Hands to Heart
Stand straight – arms up
Stretch side left standing
Stretch side right standing
Cool Down – Lotus Mediation sitting hands over head

Students should be able to do all exercises in school uniforms, casual dress, blue jeans, dresses or skirts as long as they are dressed within the school dress codes. Students may need the option to not participate due to health problems or inappropriate dress issues. This is a FUN and ACTIVE literature review but personalities of students and teachers involved will be a factor in the success of the activity.
