In this interactive workshop, teachers are introduced to various activities and strategies in the classroom, focusing on movement boosts, cross-curricular activities and self-regulation. Teachers walk away with tangible resources and strategies that will work for their specific classrooms.
MOVE to Learn
MOVE to Learn helps children be their best in class, learn the benefits of moving and support their path to be active for life.
Through programs, resources, mentorships and workshops, MOVE to Learn creates an environment for teachers - and schools - to confidently increase movement opportunities in children's every day learning environment.
Schools can sign up as an MOVE to Learn School with access to initiatives and ongoing support from a viaSport Regional Alliance partner, or sign up for individual initiatives. With a flexible design, schools can choose the amount of initiatives and format that suits their need.
