Product Description
Put Your Best Foot Forward!
Back to school theme with activities throughout the year!

This is a set of games, centers, and printables that focuses around students' feet and movement. It helps students get their wiggles out and learn while having fun! I called it “Put Your Best Foot Forward”, because the beginning of the year is focused on discovering and using good choices. Students are learning that their behavior is under their control and it is their choice to “put their best foot forward”.
You can use these games and printables throughout the year, but I feel like the fresh start of the school year is a wonderful place to introduce these games and ideas :)

This product is good for preschoolers, kindergarteners, or for special education instruction.
