Kids need to be active!
It is so important for children to be active and there are so many benefits they will enjoy as a result. Here are some of the things Captain Active knows being active can help students with!
Being active can improve a student’s memory,
Encourage teamwork, reduce obesity.
Being active can increase a student’s self-esteem,
Develop confidence, reduce absentees.
Being active can enhance a student’s concentration,
Lengthen attention, encourage participation.
Being active can help students break out of the mould,
Develop leadership, set big challenging goals.
Being active can assist a student solve problems,
Progress test results, advance their knowledge.
Being active is what Captain Active does best,
Until all kids are like him, he will not rest.
These activities are quick, energetic and fun. You can use them to get your students activated and ready to focus and learn first thing in the morning, straight after breaks, or at times when they need a bit of energising!
Students can do the majority of these activities at their desk, making them convenient to integrate into your day. By being creative, you can incorporate many of the activities into your lesson plans. For example, ‘Dynamic Numbers’ would be great in maths, ‘Active Alphabet’ awesome in english and ‘Electric Shock’ perfect for science.
The activities incorporate a whole range of physical and mental skills that are essential for childrens’ development, including balance, reflexes, hand eye coordination, fine motor control, self-esteem, confidence, listening and following instructions. They’re also lots of active fun!
For you and your students to get the most out of these activities, choose 1 and use it in the classroom every for a week. You’ll find over the 5 days, your students will adapt, improve and come up with different ways to play and progress the activity. The next week, choose a different activity. With over 20 activities, you can do something different each week of the semester. Without a doubt, your students will be asking to do them again, so repeat them the following semester and see how much they have developed!
Outdoor Class Games!
On days where your students don’t have physical education sessions, take your class outside and energise them with one of these awesome, fun games. They’re designed to be inclusive of all abilities and you can use your discretion to focus purely on ensuring everyone has a go and enjoys it, or adding in a competitive edge.
Whilst laughing and having a ball, your students will be developing coordination, specific physical skills, self-confidence, fine motor control, balance, team work, visual awareness and healthy eating habits, not to mention they’ll be getting the all too valuable exercise growing bodies need every day.
Coming back into the classroom, your students are going to be smiling, invigorated, alert and ready to concentrate on your lesson! Plan which time of the day this will be most useful for you class; straight up in the morning; after morning tea; or in the middle of the last session of the day.
There are over 20 different games that can be played on an oval or an indoor court. There are a few pieces of equipment you’ll need to organise to borrow from your PE teacher, or you can purchase a Captain Active class sports pack, that has everything you’ll need to play.
