Learning Trail Graphics in Your School

Studies have shown that students, particular younger ones, struggle staying focused for long periods of time.   Regular breaks though out the day from short breaks in the class room to recess have shown that it actually increases the students productivity, and provides them more opportunities to develop their creative side, and help with social skills.   Most young children spend a lot of time being distracted, and teachers have found that a more effective approach is shorter 10 to 15 minute lessons than longer 30 minutes ones.  


Guidelines from the Department of Health say that Children need a least 1 hour of physical activity per day.   Schools that  incorporate physical activity into child's daily routine help them develop a great foundation for a lifetime of fitness and good health. Other benefits include improved aerobic fitness, muscle strength and endurance in children. 

 

Movement Trails are especially effective with younger students.  They help your students improve bone health and weight status in children.  Movement Trails also reduce risk of depression in children, and can also improve cognitive function, such as thinking and memory skills.   Physical movement helps the learning process.   

 

Each and every day, we learn something.

Follow the trails to success in Learning.

Path Positives

If students are already in the hallway (restroom break or switching classes) they are permitted to use the path without asking permission. Some students will ask to jump the path as a brain break. Sometimes
when I am working with a student and I can see they are struggling to focus or have been working hard I will send them to jump the path just to take a break. They almost always come back ready to work some more.
