We need promote healthy lifestyles for our students. The program fit4Schools from Sanford Health, collaborating with WebMD is just that program. In this post, I’m going to tell you about the fit4Schools, a daily program you can use in your classroom to boost fitness, and an awesome contest that you can enter to win rainy day supplies for PE teachers or flexible seating for your classroom.

Sponsored by fit4Schools

What is fit4Schools?

fit4Schools gives families simple things they can do each day to help make healthy lifestyle choices a habit. Parents can create an account and follow a classroom and their activities, which connects home and school in a powerful way to talk about fitness. Educators create accounts and can create a classroom.

I like how the site demonstrates that we have influencers in our life — MOOD and RECHARGE that influence the choices we make about the FOOD we eat and how we MOVE.

Influencers

  • MOOD: feelings and attitudes
  • RECHARGE: sleep and relaxation

Choices

  • FOOD: what and how much you eat
  • MOVE: exercise, play, and physical activity

The daily fitBOOST gives teachers fun ways to add fitness breaks to their classroom each day. Other features include a weekly fit Calendar, and weekly lessons organized by grade level. The lessons include slide shows and are standards aligned. This is a great addition to your weekly activities in your classroom to help kids become more fit.

The fit Commit Sweepstakes are an awesome contest you can share with students. Teacher must enter by May 25, 2018 and is open to all who are currently employed full- or part-time as an educator by an accredited public or private K-12 school in the United States.
