ADHD, Exercise and Learning
This is an excellent tip to offer to teachers before the next state exams, especially with all the new APPR requirements and test score results - take a brisk walk for 20 minutes right before the exams. Free, healthy and super simple to carry out.
Need ideas to squeeze physical activity in throughout the school day? Check out the following -
Classroom Activity Posters, Mini Movement Breaks, Roll Some Fun, Dancing with the Owls and Educational Sensory Motor Activities.
