A MOVING CHILD IS A LEARNING CHILD. Movement is at the very core of how children develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, and of course, physically. Here at Moving Smart™ we foster children’s natural, move-to-learn style, while helping parents and teachers understand the comprehensive benefits of all that wiggling! So let's get moving! Carrie J.

10 water bottles full of colored water for pins, beach balls for the bowling balls and we've got lawn bowling! The kids lined up and took turns trying to knock all the pins down with the ball. We counted the pins that fell and called out their colors. A great activity that reinforced counting and colors and patience as they waited for their turns.
Painting the snow! When it's too cold and snowy to go outside, bring the outside in! The teachers in our toddler classroom gathered snow from outside and brought it in for the toddlers to explore. To add to the experience the teachers gave the children a paint brush and let them make colored snow!
