Distracted Drifter

  • Open with yoga or simple grounding and calming exercise
  • Try to limit distractions in teaching area (other kids, noises, etc)
  • Build in time for movement and breaks. Try a Go Noodle video. These are teacher and kid-approved videos that help get those wiggles out!
  • Change it up. Every 15-20 minutes, switch gears to keep your lessons exciting.
  • Leverage your student’s interests. Offer options and get creative to bring some of their favorite things into your lessons.
  • Sports: have lots of games, not just drills.
  • Arts: have shorter projects, after projects are finished let kids have creative free exploration with materials in a non-structured manner.
