These simple Google Slides are perfect for inspiring movement and self-regulation during in-person OR virtual therapy/classroom sessions!
We’re hearing from therapists and teachers every day who are looking for simple ways to target movement skills during virtual sessions or to get kids up and moving after long periods of the day spent on screens.
Today, we’re here to share a super simple Christmas tree-themed Google Slide presentation that’s the perfect way to get kids moving this holiday season!
Whether you’re targeting skills like balance, coordination, and strength during virtual therapy sessions or you’re looking for a fun way to take movement or self-regulation breaks throughout the day, this super simple Google Slides presentation will do the trick.
On the slides of the presentation, you’ll find an image of a Christmas tree with a selection of different ornaments that can be dragged onto the tree. Written on each ornament is a different movement, yoga pose, or breathing technique (depending on which slide you choose). Kids have to complete the activity written on the ornament in order to drag it onto the tree!
Enter your name and email address in the boxes below and the link to the slide presentation will be sent right to your inbox!
How to Use This Game:
-Use the game on screen share during virtual therapy sessions or during virtual classroom sessions. Have the child choose which color ornament for you to drag onto the tree. Have them complete 10 repetitions of the movement written on the ornament.
-Send a link to the game to the child’s parent or caregiver for them to play at home.
-Use the game during in-person therapy sessions or in the classroom as a movement warm-up or a movement break!
-In the classroom or during virtual classroom sessions, pull the Google Slide up throughout the day and add one ornament at a time by having the group perform a movement together. See if you can decorate the whole tree by the end of the day!
