The Center begins the Exercise Study
Young children are in nearly constant motion!
Moving makes children feel capable and confident, releases tension, and builds strong bodies and minds.
Children’s love of movement will make this study of exercise very exciting!
We’ll try many types of exercise, watch other people exercise, find out how bodies move, and learn what our bodies need to move and exercise.
As we study exercise, we will learn concepts and skills in physical development, literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology.
We’ll also develop thinking skills as we observe, investigate, ask questions, solve problems, make predictions, and test our ideas.
What You Can Do at Home
*Talk with your child about exercise and do a few exercises with your child each day.
*Point out when you notice people in your community exercising.
*Help your child keep a daily exercise chart.
*Create a list together of your family’s favorite exercises.
*As you read books with your child, notice and talk about the character’s physical movements.
Thank you for playing an important role in our learning.
