Pick a Card and Do Your Exercise

Back

Storm Chasers:

Students are assigned a type of weather condition such as: tornado, hurricane, lightning, thunder, rain, etc. When the teacher calls out the weather condition the students act out their assigned weather. For example if ‘tornado’ is called—student spins like a top.

Back

Active Literature:

Read or have students read excerpts from literature or news articles aloud to the entire classroom and every time the words "a", "an", "the", "by" and "there" (or any words of your choice) are heard, the classroom must stand up, jump and then sit down quickly.

Back

European Vacation:

As students study about Europe, be the tour guide and take them on an imaginary trip. As you make your stops along the way: March at the gates of Buckingham Palace, Swim through the English Channel, Climb the Swiss Alps, do Kitesurfing in Tarifa, Spain, ride a bicycle in Amsterdam etc.

Back

Higher/Lower:

One student comes to the front of the room. The teacher writes a 3 digit number on the board behind the student so he/she can’t see it. The student calls out a number while marching in place. The remainder of the class marches in place until the number is called out. If the number is too low, the class jumps up and down (guess higher). If the number is too high, the class squats (guess lower). When the correct number is identified, select a different student to come to the front and repeat.

Take 5 Breathing

This exercise releases muscle tension. Pretend you have a lemon in your hand. Reach up to the tree and pick a lemon with each hand. Squeeze the lemons hard to get all the juice out – squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. Throw the lemons on the floor and relax your hands. Then repeat, until you have enough juice for a glass of lemonade! After your last squeeze and throw, shake out your hands to relax!

This exercise releases muscle tension. Pretend you are a feather floating through the air for about ten seconds. Suddenly you freeze and transform into a statue. Don’t move! Then slowly relax as you transform back into the floating feather again. Repeat, making sure to finish as a floaty feather in a relaxed state.

This is a simple exercise that encourages deep breathing – a way to relax. Pretend you have a nice smelling flower in one hand and a slow burning candle in the other. Breathe in slowly through your nose as you smell the flower. Breathe out slowly through your mouth as you blow out the candle. Repeat a few times.

Flower and Candle

Back

This exercise releases muscle tension. Pretend you are a turtle going for a slow, relaxed turtle walk. Oh no, it’s started to rain! Curl up tight under your shell for about ten seconds. The sun’s out again, so come out of your shell and return to your relaxing walk. Repeat a few times, making sure to finish with a walk so that your body is relaxed.

Turtle

Back

This exercise releases muscle tension. Pretend you are a lazy cat that just woke up from a lovely long nap. Have a big yawn. And a meow. Now stretch out your arms, legs and back – slowly like a cat – and relax.
