School’s out for the summer! If you’re like me, you’re ready for some time where you don’t even THINK about lesson plans or curriculum or teaching methods. But, inevitably, my mind always returned to those thoughts as the summer progressed. Summer, when you have oodles of free time (at least compared to the school year), may be an excellent opportunity to learn more about classroom physical activity. In preparation for the 2015-2016 academic year, take some time to discover how classroom physical activity can impact your students, your teaching, and your classroom environment. And then take some time to think about how you can make physical activity in the classroom work for you!
Free online training module: PBS Learning Media offers “Increasing Physical Activity in Schools: PD for Elementary Teachers” – a professional development module designed to offer tools to increase school-based physical activity.
Use our implementation page to get tips and tricks on adding or increasing physical activity in your own classroom. This page offers an action plan template and sample to get you started!
