Are you staying warm with all of this snow? We have been trying to stay warm AND active in our classroom lately (especially with all the indoor recesses due to the cold weather). Indoor recess can be hard (on the students and the teachers 😉 ) and I’ve been trying to find things for us to do that get us moving! Instead of sitting around inside, I found this website on Pinterest:
Adventure to Fitness! (www.adventuretofitness.com) It. Is. Amazing! Not only does it teach the kids something fun, but it gets them moving. And by moving, I mean moving the WHOLE time! The kids are so engaged during the entire video. Basically the videos are 30 minute adventures and the students follow Mr. Marc throughout the “game”.
They might need to run in place, “climb” a mountain, “swim” across a river, “slide” down a pyramid, or “surf” on some alligators. They act out all of these things while Mr. Marc teaches them about where they are and other fun vocabulary related to the area they are in.
So, if they are trying to find a hidden medallion in the pyramids, they not only learn about mummies, pyramids, deserts, and camels, but they get to run, jump, hop, and more the whole time! And let me tell you, they are getting a GREAT workout! (But at the same time, learning and having fun!)
Here’s the basic breakdown of how to get it to work at home or in a classroom:
Here are some of my students having a blast doing one of the videos! Try it at home with your kids or at school with your students. Tell me how it works! Do you enjoy it? Do your kids enjoy it?
