May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month! What an amazing opportunity for you to do some active learning and find out about the benefits of physical fitness with your class.
Held annually, this month aims to bring attention to the importance of staying active by participating in physical activity.
Not only is physical fitness great for little bodies (and grown-up ones!), but it also does wonderful things for little minds.
A study from the University of Illinois showed that children who are physically fit are more likely to perform better in school and achieve higher grades!
What better reason do you need to embrace the benefits of physical fitness in your classroom? Let us help you with some amazing fitness games and activities your students will love. Not only are they amazingly fun resources, but they are also designed specifically with learning in mind.
Active Learning Activities for Your Classroom
Get out to play, and #moveinMay this Physical Fitness and Sports Month! We have some amazing resources to help you and your class do just that!
FREE Weekly Active Learning Guides
These amazing FREE resources give your class everything they need to get active with their learning.
We think staying active in the classroom is important so we have created weekly active learning guides to get you through the month of May! Each day of the week focuses on a different learning area, and the activities are sure to get your students out of their seats and learning – all at the same time!
Why just stick to May? The best thing is that these resources are also in editable Word format – you can re-use them again and again!
Tick off your TEKS links and have fun while doing it:
- Mondays we are ‘Moving in Mathematics‘
- Tuesdays it is ‘Grammar on the Go’
- Wednesdays we have ‘Physical Phonics‘ for k–1 and 2–3, and ‘Shuffling Through Science‘ for 4–5
- Thursdays we are ‘Speeding Around Spelling‘
- Fridays we are doing the ‘Sight Word Shuffle’ for k–1 and ‘Vocabulary with Vigor’ for 2–3 and 4–5!
These Active Learning Guide Resource Packs provide you with a weekly guide, and links to resources you will need for the week.
