Learning on Your Feet: Incorporating Physical Activity into the K8 Classroom
Students often learn better on their feet than in their seats, and this powerful book helps you make the most of that in the classroom. Authors Brad Johnson and Melody Jones show that with COVID-19 leading to more inactivity, more schools cutting PE, and the rise in sedentary obesity, its more important than ever for kids to get moving.
Throughout the book, Johnson and Jones offer practical strategies on how to transform the physical classroom, how to manage the classroom with movement, and how to integrate fitness and technology. They break down research on how movement can help stimulate brain function and improve skills such as critical thinking, organization, focus, engagement, and achievement. They also offer a variety of movement-based activities for English-language arts (ELA); social studies; science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); and more. This updated second edition includes even more exercises and activities that can be used daily and incorporated into the content areas.
No matter what grade level or subject you teach, youll find easy to implement activities you can use immediately to increase your students energy and enjoyment of learning.
