Monday, March 4

Energize your week with a daily boost! When you have a minute of down time, choose to stretch or move your body! 

MOVE boosts your energy!
Decide to turn your MOOD around if you're feeling lazy or tired, then MOVE. You'll feel great and be glad you made the fit choice!

Hang It
Make a MOVE poster! Write or draw on this poster to remind yourself to MOVE.  Place the poster near the TV or in your bedroom to encourage you to warm-up, move, and cool-down each day.

Start your day with play! When you wake up, get moving and do something you love with no screens. Boost your MOOD with a little MOVE!

Jump start the day with a little morning movement. It can be something as simple as stretching. When you take a few minutes to warm up your body, you are more apt to have a positive attitude all day long! Loosen up the muscles, clear the mind, and breathe deeply. Now you are ready to walk, skip, or jump through the school day! 

You Choose
Print this handout. Then, write or draw how you MOVE throughout the day - in the morning, at school, at home, etc.

Farmers work hard all day to activate their MOVE. Can you name some animals that a farmer might take care of?

Just like farmers, you have things to do, such as house chores. Find ways to MOVE while you clean, do your homework, or work outside. Moving will boost your energy and make chores more fun!  

Moo While you MOVE!
Play a game of farm animal charades! Gather up family and friends and have one person at a time act out an animal while everyone else tries to guess!

You can move many times, many ways in a day!

Create new versions of games you enjoy.
Listen to your favorite songs and dance, dance, dance.
Try a new hobby, like fishing or gardening.
Imitate your favorite animal.
