Songs that involve movement and some structured dancing. Kids like to be involved, whether it’s helping or just doing random things. Let’s say it is clean-up time. We would sing the clean-up song, and I would have them dance and sing while we put toys away. When its time to form a line to go outside, I could always have them dance their way into a single file line. Just adding singing and dancing to the littlest thing helps.

Do you have any tips for creating a developmentally appropriate, fun, and physically active classroom?
Plan both structured and unstructured large motor activities.
Brain breaks in the classroom.
Indoor and outdoor play.
Implement large motor activities into instruction.
You could start by making sure their classroom has enough space for kids to move around freely. It is also good to incorporate active play materials that are age appropriate such as balls, hula hoops, balance beams, tunnels, and climbing structures. It is also fun if you plan active breaks with the students that provide movement between lessons or more structured activities.
