    I think dancing is a fun yet simple way to provide children with daily exercise. Make up movements to songs they love and find ways to incorporate those dances every day. ‘Call and response’ games are very engaging too. For example, the teacher can make up movements (jumping, touching your toes, stretching, etc.) and have the class mimic them! Or go around a circle and have the kids choose a movement and then their classmates mimic them. Group activities in general will likely provide the best results!
    Getting the children to help with cleaning up toys is also providing opportunities for movement.
