Marina is owner of Exercise Rhymes®. Excercise Rymes are fun playful rhymes and exercises for adults to do with young children up to 7 years. Children need regular exercise to excel at academics and studies show that fit kids do better at school. Yet with the decrease/ elimination of PE classes in school to accommodate more academic lessons, kids are not getting enough exercise. Parents and teachers must all compensate to ensure kids stay healthy and have the greatest capacity to learn. By incorporating short fitness breaks into classroom activities, kids exert physical energy, enabling them to refocus their attention on learning. When academic lessons involve movement, kids retain information better by engaging more parts of the brain.
