Transcript of Integrating Physical Activity

SPARK the brain
Response to Intervention (RtI)
“Response to intervention (RtI) integrates assessment and intervention within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to maximize social and  behavior competencies. With RtI, schools identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitor student progress, provide evidence-based interventions and adjust the intensity and nature of those interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness, and identify students with learning disabilities” (National Center on Response to Intervention).
Academic Outcomes
Achievement (grades, test scores)
Behavior (time on-task, attendance, conduct)
Cognitive skills and attitudes (concentration, memory, mood)
Response to Intervention
Differentiated Learning (auditory, visual, kiniesthetic)
Impacting learning through causal pathways
Improves cognition via blood flow to the brain
Decreases misbehavior
Increases attentiveness
Improves concentration
Enhanced memory
Improved math and reading skills
Improved comprehension
A coordinated series of movements (tai chi, yoga, Brain Gym), done slowly and with balance, produces neurotrophins (natural neural growth factors) and a greater number of connections among neurons!!
Aerobic exercise increases the supply of oxygen to the brain, increasing the effectiveness of the brain.
Exercise activates major growths of neurons.
Science Agrees That….

Increasing or maintaining time for PA does not appear to adversely impact academic performance
Substantial evidence that school-based physical activity can:
help improve academic achievement (including grades and standardized test scores)
have a positive impact on cognitive skills and academic behaviors

Intention: To stimulate the brain in ways that allows the individual to have equal access to all dimensions of the brain.
A field of science that studies the way that movement affects the brain’s ability to learn and grow… AND provides practical applications of this information.
What IS Educational Kinesiology?
Reinforce curriculum concepts with 10-minute bursts of fun exercise while meeting your physical activity requirements! TAKE 10! for grade levels:
features evidence-based lessons combined with fun physical activity Children de-stress, re-energize and get moving as they perform activities emphasizing various subjects including language arts, math, social studies, science, and health.
Helps to reduce sedentary behaviors and instills positive health habits.
Requires no special training or equipment.
Binder includes: over 30 activity cards, worksheets, tracking posters, stickers, teacher resources, and teacher/student assessments.
Time for physical activity does not decrease academic achievement

Physical activity breaks in the classroom remove barriers to learning
Low energy, behavior issues, inattentiveness

Physical activity can be used to teach academic content

Physical activity breaks can be used to increase daily physical activity
Classroom Physical Activity
“In the great work of education, our physical condition, if not the first point of importance, is the first in order of time. On the broad and firm foundation of health alone can the loftiest and most enduring structures of the intellect be reared.”
Horace Mann

CSPAP and Program Review
Utilizing Physical Activity to diversify learning

Identify the 5 components of CSPAP

Identify a variety of opportunities and physical activities for the classroom

Sound Off! is a DVD based curriculum tool that combines phonetic reinforcement activities with basic movement patterns in an exciting, fun theme-based program. Each lesson is led by a secret agent and disguised as a top-secret mission. The students work to assist Special Agent Steve in protecting the English language.

Each DVD lesson utilizes research based teaching methods to combine physical activity with phonetic reinforcement activities and follows a Direct Instruction model. By doing this, Sound Off! allows (preK-2) teachers to provide physical activity within the classroom setting without sacrificing academic time. You provide the initial instruction and Sound Off! will assist you with the Hook/Theme, Review, Modeling and Guided Practice.
