We are a 3rd grade class of very energetic kids. Every morning we begin with a brain break exercise to get the wiggles out and focus our brains for learning. We do brain breaks between each subject as well. Many students still have a really tough time sitting still and not fidgeting or finding excuses to get up. Kids want to do well- some just don't know how. My goal is to provide opportunities for kids to pedal while they work. I have tried this in my classroom and found the productivity and focus of my students has gone up immensely! I need more pedal exercisers so that more students have the opportunity each day. It is a huge motivator for my students, and they are very responsible with them because the kids know it helps! Please help our class not only combat the obesity epidemic in this country, but also get focused, have fun and learn as much as we can!
