How did the first few weeks of school go at your house? Or are you one of the lucky bunch that doesn’t head back until after Labor Day here in the States? We have had a pretty successful start. My little guy is tired (Kindergarten is an adjustment) and so am I (back to work is a bigger adjustment!).
We’ve been plugging away here at The Inspired Treehouse. We are just about ready to launch our book! What?!?! Yep, Sensory Processing 101 will hit the shelves on September 15th! SO EXCITING! Be sure to sign up to receive updates about the book!
We also had a fabulous reader ask us to create a dream study space for her children and we so enjoyed that project! Before we knew it, Monday rolled back around again! Here are some fun movement ideas for kids that were shared on our Facebook page last week.
THERE’S JUST ONE MOMMY || This game is fun and offers up some great balance, coordination, body awareness and motor planning practice! Kids can create their own spiderweb and the have a blast moving over, under and through! Halloween is coming – what a great classroom activity to get kids moving!
TEACHING TWO AND THREE YEAR OLDS || Music is motivating and fun and there are so many varieties to choose from that it is impossible to get bored! This is a great list of 10+ music and movement ideas for preschoolers that incorporates everything from jumping to paper plates!
PINK OATMEAL || Chanda has been dominating movement Monday with her yoga sequence ideas! She is a fellow PT with great ideas for encouraging whole body movement in kids. This post on Cowboy Themed Brain Breaks and Yoga Ideas is pretty cool!!
That’s all for today! Have you come up with a great activity that encourages whole body movement in your child or your classroom? Please share it with us on Facebook!
