We understand the benefits that physical activity can have for our students — from improving attention and time on task, to improving behaviour in the classroom. However, with all the demands of teaching it can be difficult to find time to incorporate DPA throughout the day. Each set of Fitness Charts contains various lesson plans that integrate literacy and numeracy activities with the Charts. Teachers can use these fun games and activities in their classrooms (or hallways, fields, playgrounds, etc.) to meet literacy and numeracy outcomes while also ensuring students hit their DPA goals.
An important aspect of any healthy school environment is physical activity -- for both students and staff. It contributes not only to our physical wellness but can also help us manage things like stress and anxiety, which can negatively affect our mental wellness.
Each Fitness Chart set offers different lesson plans, games, activities and circuit designs that include strategies to promote physical wellness, mental wellness and self-regulation for both students and teachers.
