With these extreme outdoor temperatures, our students aren’t getting very much active movement. So, we decided to have a dance party in our gymnasium today! We took a few cds, scarves, ribbons and got out hoola-hoops. For 20 minutes, we let the children pick what they wanted to move with, if anything, and just played some children-friendly music. Once we were done, we all went to the water fountain to replenish.
The children enjoyed it, and seemed less “figedity” in class for the rest of the day. As long as this heat stays, we are going to do this every morning!
