FitBits™

“...a phenomenal way to have children move within the classroom in a very short, structured period of time. With less than ten minutes of interaction and movement, you change the entire learning environment and settle the children so they can listen better and learn better.”

The FitBits Kindergarten book of physical activity lessons for classroom teachers, shown with the included music CD

Multiple studies show that active children have higher academic test scores. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend physical activity that adds up to 60 minutes per day for children to promote overall health and well-being.

FitBits is an innovative, best practice resource that gets students up out of their seats and moving while, at the same time, reinforcing nutrition and health concepts that are aligned with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, grade level National Health Standards and USDA MyPlate. The activities are arranged into four content areas: Healthy Bodies, Food Groups, Fruits and Veggies and Healthy Snacks.

Elementary children perform a FitBits activity in the classroom as a break between subjects

In just 7–10 minutes, classroom educators can use FitBits as a fun, kid-approved strategy to offer engaging physical activity opportunities that break up periods of student inactivity, transition to other subjects, and just liven up their classroom.

The variety of movements in each booklet are age-appropriate for developmental skill level with opportunities for students to participate in the three types of physical activity: endurance, strength and flexibility.

FitBits activities are designed to require no special equipment and each book includes a music CD to optionally play during activities.

To assist teachers in their instructional efforts, the FitBits activities are designed so students can also practice grade level specific milestones in fun and exciting ways!

This enhanced version of FitBits includes a new feature called the “Apple Core.” Each activity has a grade-specific “Apple Core” which teachers can use to further reinforce Common Core Educational Standards for Math and English Language Arts.
