It’s not easy balancing academic requirements with children’s daily need for physical activity. Teachers and schools face many pressures to achieve high standards, and often sacrifice recess and physical education classes to help school children reach those goals. Yet young kids need time to run and play to stay alert, focused and cooperative.
How can your school or organization harmonize these needs? With the Recess Rocks® program!
Weaving together aerobic movements—like kickboxing and tae kwon do, swing and African drumming, tai chi and yoga—and joyful musical beats, the 1-30 minute sustained activities blend seamlessly into the school day and:
- Get kids fit
- Sharpen young minds
- Encourage natural “feel-good” energy
- Build self-esteem
- Improve discipline
- Nurtures fitness and lifelong healthy habits
