If you’re like me, you consistently seek ways to improve your craft. You search for the latest research and ideologies which have the potential to improve you as an individual as well as those you influence. In my case, I’m a physical education teacher with a passion for keeping my lessons challenging, fresh and fun for my students. I carve away at my profession by reading blog posts, articles, and books related to keeping children active not only during PE class and recess, but throughout the day. Of course, much of this research can be shared and implemented at home with my own children.
As a way to share my professional knowledge and experiences with parents, teachers, and peers, I initiated a Facebook group called Keeping Kids in Motion. Whenever I come across something exciting, innovative, and useful, I truly want everyone to know. Perhaps other teachers, parents and kids can benefit as well. Posting information on Keeping Kids in Motion not only allows me to share, but also gives group members an opportunity to provide feedback and/or share any information they deem appropriate in regard to promoting lifelong fitness in today’s youth.
If you answer “YES” to any of these questions, you’re ready to join Keeping Kids in Motion:
- Are you a teacher or counselor who shares a similar passion for improving your craft?
- Are you a parent looking for new ideas and activities to enhance child movement?
- Do you have a blog or have you written an article relating to keeping kids in motion?
- Do you have a video of your family playing a cool, active game in your backyard.
- Do you have a question another group member could answer?
If this is the case then I would love for you to join the growing Keeping Kids in Motion Facebook group. Feel free to read the posted articles and watch the countless videos posted by people just like you. Together we can teach each other. Together we can learn from each other! Together we can keep our kids in motion and prepare them for lifelong fitness!
