Back To School Moving and Learning Resources

Back to school is quickly approaching. For some of you it may already be here. In Minnesota, back to school isn’t until the very end of August and most schools don’t start until September! You can check out my back to school organization plan for the upcoming school year! I’m also sharing with you some fun products that are perfect to start off the new school year with a moving and learning theme!

A list of some great resources to incorporate movement into the classroom or therapy. Freebies too!

Back To School Freebies

When I’m getting to know students and a new school I will sometimes have a student take me on “a tour” of their school. Along with the typical gross motor challenges a school presents (stairs, uneven surfaces, playground etc) I love to incorporate a little fun with a scavenger hunt.

I’m also big on communication. If you are a therapist or itinerant provider I have a free daily communication form available in my Back To School Planning post that you can check out to see if it would work for you!

I love adding movement to any kind of theme!  Start off by accessing the huge collection of motor planning for most any theme!

Moving With Numbers

Buy It In The Shop

We’ve talked letters now let’s talk numbers. How about adding some Moving With Numbers? These have been great in the therapy setting and so many teachers have given feedback about how they are using them in their morning meeting – specifically calendar time (my mom included!).

What Others Are Saying

“We are using these cards every day at the end of morning calendar time. It’s a great way to get the kids up and moving. I give the kids ownership in this activity by giving each (nonverbal) child a chance to pull a number. We match the number to the exercise card with the same number and do that exercise. They love it!”

“Movement in my Class is a must. I needed movement in my calendar time, and I am so excited to have found these. They will be perfect!”

“I love that this goes up to 30. I plan to use them once a day for a month, then rotate them as something fun to look forward to during morning meetings with my PreK.
