Strike 2! Move 'n Groove is inside again.

But we've got you covered! 

Your couch potato days are over. 

Because sitting all day leads to decay... 

...of our muscles.

Regular exercise equals healthy hearts (also a muscle). 

Running, biking, jumping rope, they all get our hearts pumping and our blood flowing.

So today's activity is a movement-based word game. 

This game is equally fun both indoors and outdoors. 

When playing indoors though, simply substitute the chalk letters with paper letters. 

And now, let's get spelling! 

Step 1

Draw out the alphabet.

Find a nice stretch of sidewalk to draw on with chalk.

Have the letters be out of order.

Can you find the letter, R?

Step 4

Step 4

Walk to the letter, R. 

Step 5

Step 5

Mix it up!

Do a different action letter to letter. 

Crabwalk to "U," hop to "N," and so on. 

Here are some more actions:         

  • Skip

  • Glide
  • Spin
  • Crawl
  • Jazz Hands


An "A" for victory 👍
