Move to Learn
Coach Larry Calhoun, the star of the Move to Learn exercise break videos, has some fun with Mary Reid Elementary kindergarten students La’Keria Malone and Faith Rhynes during his visit to the school last week. Coach Calhoun introduced administrators, teachers and students in the Marshall County School District to the Move to Learn initiative. The Move to Learn videos feature Coach Calhoun leading students in simple movement exercises that can be done in a small space. The fitness breaks help teachers create positive learning environments and promote effective classroom management. These brief, organized and free classroom movement breaks can help teachers manage their students’ energy levels, so that after a fitness break children’s brains are more focused and ready to learn or take a test.
