3 Story and Movement DVD’s for ages 3-7 yrs
I just love the self-regulation techniques called Adventure Skills that characters in the stories use to be strong, smart, manage feelings and overcome obstacles. These social-emotional life skills are then reinforced with the use of the Adventure Skills Flash Cards.
This was EXACTLY what we have been looking for! We are a homeschool family and yes, the kids do get their exercise from Soccer practice and games but it’s not 60 minutes every day. We complete 60 minutes of PE a day for our homeschool but sometimes it’s not so much fun…more like torture to get the boys to do something. This is so much fun both my 4 and 6 year old sons LOVE it and I have fun playing along with them or just watching them both together.
As you can see from the short video above, this isn’t your typical exercise video. It is story time, imagination time, exercise and fun time all rolled up into one. We received the DVD 3 pack called “Scooter and Me Active Play for Body, Mind, Heart with Wendy & Friends”. It comes with a pack of cards showing you with pictures and explaining different exercises and moves like Rock the boat that calms any upset, Coral Reef for acceptance and Tortoise, Hare and Dragon for perseverance. It is all just so much fun and is so engaging for the children. It not only gives them exercise but also teaches them to focus, use their imagination, coordination, and so much more! Here is everything we received:
This is the perfect way to take a fun study break or as an indoor activity on days you can’t or don’t want to get out, that gets the heart-rate up, releases those built up wiggles, and brings out the fun and giggles all while helping our children feel calm, centered and better able to access creative and complex thinking skills? As I have said in many of my other posts I just love it when products pull double-duty and this is another great product that does this. We get a super fun, physical fitness program paired up with a great social-emotional development program and the kids just think its play-time! This series really engages the whole child.
The DVDs and cards were developed by educators with kids and they are used nationwide in homes as well as in classrooms. They give children/families/classrooms a self-regulation vocabulary. They also give kids concrete actions to take to support, calm and re-direct themselves. These programs area available for purchase as DVDs or as digital downloads right from the internet to your home from their website, Move-with-me. You can also keep up with them on Facebook and Twitter.
