Morning Exercise with Your Students

exercise 2

This is not my classroom, just an example

 

 

We start class at 7:35 am but we go to class at 7:25 so we have 10 minutes to do our morning daily routines.

However, I have added another thing to our daily routine which is exercising. Every morning we exercise for 2 minutes mainly focusing on breathing. First we breathe 3 times then we shake our arms and legs. After we stretch our arms and move our shoulders in a circle. Finally, we breathe again for 3 times. I usually put music while we are exerising . Sometimes I put “Silence of Peace” by John Levin, the alpha waves music that i mentioned in one of my previous posts, or i just put any soft and relaxing music.

 You can’t believe how important this breathing and stretching exercise is to these kids. It gives them energy and puts them into a relaxation mood. It is actually great for both teachers and students.  Try it tomorrow! You will love it 🙂
