Simple Obstacle Courses for Kids 17/04/2019

Hey everyone! It's been a while since we've posted, but we ran across this article and thought it was too good not to share! Obstacle courses are something we do a lot in class and they have so many benefits. The good news is, they are a simple and FUN way to get kids up and moving when they're at home!

Simple Obstacle Courses for Kids When many people think of an obstacle course for kids, they envision a significant amount of equipment, space and setup. The good news is that with a few basic pieces of playground equipment and minimal space, an instructor can create a fun and effective obstacle course that challenges and engages c...

We had some fine motor fun in class yesterday.

Peeling stickers is a simple activity, but works on multiple skill sets.

Fine motor dexterity is vital and as well as working on bilateral hand skills (using two hands together for a task). Both of these will help with all those future “school tasks”. By having the kids put stickers on the dots, they also got to work on some hand-eye coordination and visual targeting. There was even some midline work done as well. Just figuring out how to peel the stickers was a lesson in problem solving!

Grab some stickers and have fun!

So you’ve heard a little about our class at total fitness but you haven’t signed your child up yet...NOW is the time!

This class has been a blast so far and we have loved getting to know the kids and figure out what works in this setting.

ABCD Kids isn’t a “workout” class for kids, but rather a whole body/brain experience designed to work on the building block skills essential to future success in the classroom setting. The class is designed for kids ages 3-4 and 5 year olds that have not gone to kindergarten yet.

To make the class more accessible to more people, we are offering a major discount for anyone interested in getting their child started. You can pick and choose the days you’d like to come, or you can sign up for the whole month and have your child come every day! You are not required to be a member of Total Fitness in order to have your child participate.

Please message us for payment options and we can’t wait to meet your child!

Today was SO much fun!

Did you know kids don’t come with the automatic ability to pattern?? Did you also know that patterning skills are the basic beginnings of math skills??

Now check this out - did you know you can combine gross motor, problem solving, rhythm, language skills, positional concepts and a whole lot of fun while also learning about patterning?? Find some items around the house and get creative!

Have a child 3-5 years old?? You should join us at Total Fitness gym and we can all learn and grow together!

We had a GREAT time last week working on turn taking skills, upper body strength, motor planning, and some proprioceptive input!

All this and the kids just thought we were “playing” and having fun!

Happy October!

We’ve been so busy and having so much fun in class, that we keep forgetting to share some of the things we’ve been doing!

This week is all about visual targeting skills and hand-eye coordination. It’s amazing how entertaining a plate with a hole in it can be, lol!
We also worked on some letter and name recognition with a bean bag game.
Miss tracy even came in at the end of class and let us try out the aerial yoga hammock - super fun!

The Learning Risks when Babies Skip the Crawling Phase 20/08/2018

This is a great article on the benefits of crawling and the risks when a child skips that stage.

Just like we said, babies and kids are developing differently today. We live in a fast paced world and we see so many little ones almost “rushed through” very important developmental milestones. This article explains why your baby should be encouraged to crawl and ways to help them do that.

Crawling is just one of the many skills we will work on in fun ways during our ABCD Kids class at total fitness.

The Learning Risks when Babies Skip the Crawling Phase Why Babies Should Not Skip the Crawling Phase Crawling seems like an infant’s rite of passage. It’s cute, it’s exciting and let’s be honest, most of our little ones’ first step toward mobility usually follows a slew of phone calls to loved ones and ends up on social media. It’s a step we...

Early Learning is Key

As two public school educators, Katie and Dana have seen first hand the impact this new fast paced, technology driven society have had on the daily functioning of children in the classroom. Together they have a combined teaching experience of 22 years and have degrees in Early Childhood Education, Early Childhood Special Education, and Elementary Education. Their increasing concern in this area lead them to develop this program, ABCD Kids, and to combine their knowledge of child development and general fitness for a fun, educational experience for young learners.

In the classroom, they both saw the direct effects of a more sedentary lifestyle and the increase of screen time with our kids today. It has become harder for our students to get along with others, solve problems cooperatively, pay attention and focus, control their bodies and impulses, and complete academic activities at a successful level expected for their age. Our goal is to help your child perform at their maximum potential in the classroom setting through cooperative games and strategic sensory motor activities that will engage their body and brain, in order to make connections now that will last them a lifetime.
