Movement and learning go hand in hand. Here are seven fun ways to combine reading and fitness for both Elementary and Middle school age students!
1. Letter Stretch
Get loosened up by working your way through the alphabet.For younger kiddos work on uppercase and lowercase letters. For older students spell common challenging words: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, why not?
2. Alphabet Race
Students perform a relay race by working their way through the alphabet, coming up with one word that starts with each letter. Make it tougher by putting parameters around the words"must be countries, or verbs only"
3. Setting the Scene
Where did the most recent book take place?A jungle, the desert, a big city, or on a boat? Students get moving by acting out different animals, people, or tasks that would be found in that same setting. Pretend to swab the deck, or plank instead of walking the plank!
