HEALTHY HABITS BINGO!

Perfect for MAY or ANYTIME!

If you’re like me, you want to teach your students and your own kids the importance of healthy habits at a young age. Healthy habits are behaviors that are beneficial to one’s physical or mental health, often linked to a high level of discipline and self-control. Therefore, whether it’s brushing teeth, limiting screen time, or playing outside, we want the people we love and care for to regularly take on these actions at a young age so they will eventually turn into habits.

HEALTHY HABITS BINGwill help reinforce conversations you may have already had with your students and loved ones.

What is HEALTHY HABITS BINGO?

HEALTHY HABITS BINGO comes with a BINGO card consisting of 24 different healthy habits. Over a chosen period of time, kids can check off each of the healthy habits as they complete them. I give my students one month to see how many times they can record a BINGO up, down, and diagonally. The ultimate goal is a SUPER BINGO, which is filling in the entire card.

There’s also a blank HEALTHY HABITS BINGO template as seen below. This gives kids a chance to create their own HEALTHY HABITS BINGO card. They can fill the template with their own healthy habits and share it with family and friends.

Let's Enjoy Nature - Outdoor Scavenger Hunt

2 scavenger hunts and a blank template to create your own!

I’m encouraging my students and families to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. This is especially important during a time when kids and adults spend excessive time on computers for school, work, and pleasure. It’s time to open the door, step outside, breathe fresh air, and observe our natural surroundings. By observing, I mean slow down and take a deep dive into our natural environment. Look high, look low, look under, look through, look behind, look everywhere! You might be surprised what you discover.

The Let’s Enjoy Nature SCAVENGER HUNT includes two separate hunts, level 1 and level 2. Level 2 is designed to be slightly more challenging than level 1. Also included is the My Scavenger Hunt template. This is a blank template allowing participants to create their own scavenger hunt.

April's JUMP FOR JOY - It's SPRING!

30-Days of Jump Rope

I strongly believe that everybody should learn to jump rope. There are countless health benefits and it enhances balance and coordination. Jump rope is an activity for everyone. For beginners, the processing involved in timing the jump and figuring out how to turn the rope is priceless, For more advance jumpers, there are numerous available tricks and challenges to keep the activity fresh. Finally, all you need is a rope, and you don’t necessarily have to purchase one. There are creative ways to create your own rope whether it’s a piece of old clothesline, a bathrobe belt, or a bunch of old shirts braided together. You can also present the following S.T.E.A.M challenge to encourage kids to make their own jump rope using materials around the house.

The 1-minute Speed Rope Challenge

Count how many times you can successfully jump your rope in one minute. Jumps do not need to be consecutive. Calculate your daily total on the calendar.

What if I don’t have a jump rope?

No problem at all! Simply perform the challenge by jumping with an invisible rope. Pretend to turn the rope as you jump.

What if I can’t jump rope?

Each of us is at a different level when it comes to jumping rope. Try to perform the minimum number of jumps each day with the rope. For the 1-minute challenge, stretch the rope out on the ground. Count how many times you can jump back and forth over the rope in one minute.

Complete the Jump for Joy – It’s Spring! fitness challenge for 30 days.  Track your improvement.

Don’t forget the April’s Jump for Joy – It’s Spring! participation certificate! I fill one out for each student who returns a challenge at the end of the month!
