Sitting too long in classrooms, computer, activities at home make children go into a slouch positions and also loose focus. The studies have shown that children loose concentration even if it is their favorite activity. The image shows that how the girl is standing and taking her MAP test. Stacey says that this student had been in the class for only about 2 months but she followed the movement skills shown by Stacy. It helped her focus with better results and do her best for the test.
Nudge: in between these sessions in the class, at home we can indulge our children in the movement by just asking them to have water or treat themselves with crispy veg or a healthy snack. Any action that directs them to move and come back to finish the work will not only have best posture, concentration ad improved results of the work completed.
For classrooms/ how about a little shake and shack.
Parents and school teachers can try this…..
