English Class teachers have used movement in the classroom to enhance learning experiences for years and years. Now, worldwide, research is proving that, in classrooms where movement is integrated, pupils perform better academically. Information needs less revision because pupils retain the content more efficiently.
Mr. Juho, teacher of English Class fourth graders, challenged his class to move around the corridor and classroom to find twenty alphabetical order task cards. This was a revision exercise for the pupils.
Some of the task cards were placed way up high. Others were “hidden” down low, even under a table. Pupils had an answer sheet upon which to write their answers. An exercise like this engages pupils intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
