It’s once again time for our students to Flourish with Fitness by taking the Start the School Year Write fitness challenge. This challenge offers a unique combination of physical exercises to promote strength and endurance, as well as writing and educational challenges to help stimulate the mind and fine motor skills in preparation for another great school year. What better way to get back into the flow of school!
The Start the School Year Write fitness challenge consist of a calendar and an alphabet fitness key.
Each day of the month will have a Word and Workout of the Day. The words and workouts become longer and more challenging throughout the month. Added Bonus: On the back of the calendar, write five sentences or more using any of the words of the day.

The Play it Up! 30-day challenge is geared to give children a variety of ideas for both indoor and outdoor play. This is another challenge that can be offered at any time of year. However, I like to offer this challenge over the holiday break and summer vacation.
As Albert Einstein once said, “PLAY is the highest form of research!” And like I always say, “Play is a child’s best way to exercise body and brain.” NEVER STOP PLAYING!
I’m sending this challenge to our students as they enter the summer break. It’s simply a resource to use for ideas. Each square has a direct link to a Youtube video of the listed activity. Feel free to use it as a June fitness challenge.
Secondly, I’ve added another fitness challenge to my TeacherPayTeachers store called HOPPING, SKIPPING, and JUMPING for FUN! It’s another 30-day challenge, which can be started anytime.
The two challenges can carry you through the end of the year and into the summer!
