It’s Easy to Fit Fun Games for Kids Into the School Day With 9 Square in the Air
Most kids spend at least six hours each day at school. That’s one-quarter of their day! And with the American Academy of Pediatrics recommending a minimum of at least an hour a day of physical activity for children, schools are often tasked with fitting fun games for kids into the schedule.
Physical activity comes with a lot of benefits:
- Better cardiovascular health
- A boost for the immune system
- Stronger bones
- Improved mood
- Social connections
Those benefits are pretty convincing, but that doesn’t make it easier to get kids to run a mile or do push-ups. But here’s the good news: you don’t have to!
With fun games for kids like 9 Square in the Air, you can find plenty of opportunities to get them moving without even a hint of complaining. They’ll be more likely to beg you to play again.
Some ideas for incorporating 9 Square in the Air into your school day:
In gym class:
When you’re rotating kids between stations, trying to equip a substitute teacher with an activity or you are between units, 9 Square in the Air is the perfect solution. It also works great as a first-day-of-school activity or to warm kids up after winter break.
Tired of watching kids fight every time someone isn’t picked for a team or doesn’t get a spot in line for tetherball in time? 9 Square in the Air is ideal because even when kids get out, they quickly go right back in.
Your assembly got canceled. It’s unexpectedly warm outside in February. You’ve got 20 minutes to fill before you take a dozen excited kids on a field trip. 9 Square in the Air fits every situation where you’ve got time and unoccupied kids.
For burning energy:
After you’ve taught the same math concept three times, there comes a moment when you realize your students simply need to get their wiggles out. Get them playing 9 Square in the Air and then see if the lesson lands a little easier when you return to the classroom.
9 Square in the Air isn’t only a fun game for kids. It also offers a few things teachers like:
- Kids of all abilities can play. The game is adjustable for height, too.
- 9 Square in the Air is quick to teach and easy to play.
