Mounting evidence has revealed that increased physical activity reduces stress, improves concentration and enhances academic performance. Classroom teachers who have taken the steps to include physical activity throughout the day have found a marked improvement on all of the above, and can’t imagine not including physical activity every single day!
Unfortunately, there are many classroom teachers that understand the need for physical activity breaks throughout the day, but just don’t know how to begin. In addition, there are others who feel that it’s too difficult to get students up and moving during the day, and it takes away from their already crammed academic schedule.
The solution is introducing a simple resource that combines both physical activity and academic principals. Classroom teachers would then be much more likely to implement physical activity if it includes academic subjects they are already very familiar with.
