For English Language Learning Fun

Haiti - chimps

Children of different languages, including dual-language learners, learn to share their ABCs and word building fun as they write with their bodies as letters. This team learning approach quickly has kids sharing English, while also getting a flavor of their other team member’s language sounds and words. Exercising with their playmates, classmates, family, and teachers greatly expands the learning and  fun (a physically active social networking tool — kids even get the non-verbal chimps to network!).

For Special Needs Children

Exercising letter learning and word building with their bodies is perfect for children with special needs. They are itching to move to get rid of some of their body’s built up tension and physically play with their classmates and friends.KidsAFschool

Educators’ Feedback:
“The passing rate on the President’s Challenge test is usually brought down by the lack of flexibility children exhibit.Many years of working with The Presidential Physical Fitness test made me realize there has to be something out there to help children with flexibility.  I honestly feel your program just might be it. I have seen kids stretching more when they did not realize they were doing it …..having fun!  I have heard conversations as well. I feel that Alphabet Fitness is going to be a key in my test results in the coming year. My goals also address other types of learning.  These include value, thinking skills, social skills, performance skills, and behavioral goals that I wish the students would develop. I love that your program is a way to reach all those goals.”

“Children learn best by doing, and simply through play.  Alphabet Fitness recognizes, encourages, and nurtures this philosophy. Combining both fine and gross motor skills in learning can represent “success” for many children, rather than frustration or fear, by serving all types of students.  Its letter buddies and words promote social skills, cooperation, sharing, teamwork and even trust.  It is a ‘mutual interdependence’ as children need each other to make it work.
