First day back. Awesome kids. Loads of energy! Solutions?
I think I know these as Brain Gym. Either way, putting some movement in the classroom sounds like a great idea to me. Some of them in the first list below might seem a little cheesy (I am not sure it is possible to pull off a chicken impersonation and maintain your fifth grade swag?) but they do sound fun and a way to keep engaging body and mind. I really like the dice roll sheet. Quick, snappy, independent. Just like my kids.
How do you help kids engage their bodies and brains?
