Four Simple Ways to Add Movement in Daily Lessons
Helgeson, John
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v47 n2 p80-84 Win 2011
Adding movement to classroom activities not only engages students, but also may improve the classroom climate and reduce disruptions. In this article, the author discusses four simple activities to add movement in daily lessons. These activities are: (1) Vocabulary/Notes around the Room; (2) Cooperative Learning: Posting Task Assignments; (3) Stand-Sit Warm-up; and (4) Four Corners. These four activities can be added easily to any lesson, in any discipline, at any grade level. Each activity provides students with the opportunity to get out of their seats and move around, as well as a chance to collect their thoughts and refocus on learning when the activity is over.
