A teaching strategy I would use would be to shake It Up. This is by far one of the best strategy that all children benefit from it many ways. It consist of body movement, self-control, group participation, following directions it will teach the students how to share and respect everyone else’s space. A very important one is letting them release the wiggles. This is a strategy that consist of fun activities to help them enjoy school. (SHAKE IT UP) will allow them to learn and have fun at the same time. By the time they are done with shake it up they all will be ready to sit and be relax and ready to learn. The majority of all cultures all need some time to just get up and stretch and do they own thing. I speak for myself I can’t be sitting down for too long. I have to be active so I actually see myself in my student’s. We have students that love music some that just love to spin for fun, we also have the ones that feel they need to just stretch. We also have the ones that just, like to hook up and close their eyes and just take deep breaths. This will help them relax and focus. All these activity will help wake up their little brain and help them get back on track where they left off with no confusion. So I think this is a strategy all teachers should implement in their lesson.
When I had my 2nd graders I incorporated in my classroom a game called lets pick the Popsicle stick and see what surprise we have today. This is something that we will work together as a class I will give all the students a Popsicle stick. I ask them to think of something fun and silly they will like to do before moving to the next station. I will have them color them and make them all funny looking. Some of the things they choose was
* Spin 3 times,
* hop like a rabbit,
* Stretch and reach for the stars
* Jump rope
* Swap seats
* Musical chairs
* Electric slide
* Hook up drink water and close your eyes
The last one was my choice...
