Active Academics® one-day workshop will give K-5 teachers the knowledge, skills, and practical classroom-tested ideas to incorporate movement and physical activity throughout the school day - in the classroom, in physical education class, during break times such as lunch and recess, and before/after school opportunities. We know that children love to move, and that physical activity during the school day helps children to focus, concentrate, stay on task, and in some cases, increase academic learning success.

Along with learning the importance of physical activity and integrating movement throughout the day, "how" to integrate physical activity requires pedagogical knowledge and skills, which will also be addressed to help you be successful.

You can provide fun, motivational, movement experiences in your teaching without sacrificing academic learning time.

Designed for schools and districts to help PreK-8 teachers to incorporate physical activity in their regular classroom instruction and in other school opportunities throughout the school day.

This professional development workshop has been aligned with the national standards, including the Core Content Standards, developed by our leading professional organizations. This workshop is developed through a partnership with eLearning for Kids, Inc.
