Tales from the First Grade: Wiggles

Problem: It's a rainy day which means no recess. It's math time and the students are fidgety and not paying attention.

My Solution: Have students stand up and count by 2's to 100....while doing jumping jacks! FUN TIMES!

If I am trapped in the room with 17 wiggly 6 year olds tomorrow I may do a full aerobic exercise routine while teaching math!

Excellent. I may try this on Jack...or Ava.

Brilliant Rach! It really does work to have kids move and they will remember the information as well because they were moving!
