Movement is a critical component of classroom instruction. As the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) suggests there are "strong connections between physical education, movement, breaks, recess, energizing activities, and improved cognition."
Weaving movement into the world language instruction is more challenging during virtual learning because we do not always know how much space a student has where they are learning and we have to make sure we do not extend the length of the headphone cords. However, we strive to find ways to integrate physical activity that is rewarding and fun.
Here is a very short clip of my third-grade Spanish class in a movement break. I love it!
