Description: Robust body of research supports the impact of physical movement on cognitive function. Teachers who integrate movement throughout their instruction find their students are more attentive, more engaged, and less prone to misbehave. Unfortunately, most teachers feel such pressure to cover content that they feel they cannot fit movement into their day. Participants in this workshop will learn a variety of activities that simultaneously allow movement while addressing content.
