We were made to move! This is a resource for elementary school teachers focused on managing movement-based lessons in the classroom. (*The steps also apply to middle school students with minor modifications to the movement break ideas.)
In this resource packet, I will share some of my tried and true management strategies for getting kids moving! You will learn:
1- How to teach your children to control their bodies so that they can “handle” movement opportunities successfully.
2- How to build gradually from simple, basic movement experiences to more complex and content-related movement.
3- Strategies for managing the level of energy in your classroom.
4- Fun and easy movement break ideas.
5- Management tips and techniques.
6- An easy method for keeping up with your movement break ideas.
BONUS: A movement-based lesson structure, “Movement Stories.” I have included a complete movement story lesson based on the picture book, My Friend Rabbit.
