It’s time to shake, rattle n roll.

Today we bring you a range of terrific ideas on how you and your little people can throw some fun and colourful movement breaks into your day.

Children need to move in order to develop a range of skills such as coordination, balance, visual motor integration, endurance, and core strength, all of which directly affect their ability to function in school and with learning.

According to Dr. John Ratey, an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, when you move, you stimulate all the nerve cells that we use to think with, and when you stimulate those nerve cells, it gets them ready to do stuff.  When you exercise, you turn on the attention systems, so that means you’re (paying) better attention.
