The Educators at Dawn and Dusk know how important it is to have an outlet for all the energy the children bring, so we get creative with different ways to get them moving & shaking!
Recently our Pine Tree group wanted to play indoor soccer, so we gave them half of the gym and the freedom to set it up how they saw fit. Using gym matts, they built an "arena" before squaring off in a game of soccer that lasted over an hour!
Sometimes we have basketball available in the morning, which a few children really enjoy. Nothing quite wakes you up like a shooting a few hoops before heading to school!
And for some low-key morning movement, we've introduced yoga, guided by Cosmic Kids Yoga on Youtube.
For those who are bursting with energy when the sun comes up, we want to be able to match those vibes and provide opportunities to shake it out. The Educators know it can be hard to sit and concentrate in school when our bodies just need to move (that's why recess breaks are so important to a child's day of learing!) and we're committed to finding new, fun, and interesting ways to exert that morning energy. Thanks for stopping by and checking out what we've been up to!
