5 Ways Fly Movement Succeeds
Give Students a Goal
Our program provides students an opportunity to reach a fitness goal through fun, rewarding team competition using fitness trackers. As a result, they learn how to develop goal setting habits, their fitness activity increases, and they establish a positive feeling towards physical activity. If the students achieve their goal, they are awarded with sport equipment (soccer balls, footballs, basketballs, frisbees, hula hoops, jump ropes, etc.).
We provided students with an enjoyable and innovative way to learn about the benefits of fruits and vegetables. Using “Super Food” trading cards along with an interactive website, children can test themselves by playing games and taking quizzes to earn points.
We implement Fly Movement in eight-week segments during the fall and spring sessions. Two months of implementation (fitness challenge + education + experience) are necessary for impact – but the sports equipment, and take home nutritional education are accessible year round.
Under Desk Pedals
Research shows that movement in the classroom enhances cognitive learning, helps keep the fidgeting down and the creativity up. Peddling desk cycles in school is called kinesthetic learning and kids and teachers like them.
A Family Fun Run
Running is one of the easiest ways for the whole family to get into a healthy, active lifestyle. In additional to doing wonders for the body, running together promotes family bonding, teaches values, and moves the kids be a part of something big.
