Bad Weather Fun - Exercise and Clockwork!

Another great tip from a fellow teacher!

Having a bad weather day when the kids can't go outside to exercise? This little trick not only helps you work out the wigglies, but it also reinforces the hand placement on a clock, as well as their numbers.

Sitting in a chair, stick out your right foot straight ahead. Show them this is where the 12 would be. Directly to the side on the right would be 3, and on the left would be 9. Then show them the placement for 1, 2, and 4 on the right, and 8, 10, and 11 on the left.

Now, call out a number and have them point their leg where that number would be. Work on the right leg for a few sets, concentrating on 12, 1, 2, 3, and 4. Then switch to the left leg to work on 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.

Be prepared for a lot of giggles!
