January Eagle Challenge

Quick brain booster!

Welcome to Ms. Sandino's January Eagle Challenge!

Every month of the 2015-2016 school year I will be putting out a monthly challenge that each and everyone of you can use as a brain booster in your classrooms. Sometimes our kids need a quick 1-2 minute break and what not a better way to bring back their attention than with exercise. As you all may know, it is proven through research that physical activity stimulates the brain so these would be awesome to add during transitions or when they have simply just lost their marbles.

This month in the January Eagle Challenge...

WHAT?

  • Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) Cardio Workout
  • Developing cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance using the latest dance moves


WHY?

  • To promote fitness and strength.

Check your emails and look for the heading "Month + Eagle Challenge." Remember physical activity creates the brain cells and you as teachers fill them. The more physical activity, the more brain cells we have to fill them.
