Indoor Recess & some Blog Love!

Looking for some indoor recess fun?  Get on over to Adventures to Fitness. It's FREE. YES, FREE! All you have to do is sign up. On rainy (or snowy) days when you can't go outside, turn on Mr. Marc and your kids will get 30 minutes of movement AND learn something, too! Each episode takes the kids on an adventure to a faraway place and various geographic landscapes. The kids move in place by running, jumping, stretching, etc. so this is perfect for small spaces. My students love it! Recently on Facebook I saw that Adventures was offering a Skype session with Mr. Marc. All I had to do was "like" their Facebook page and email them with my name. I did and guess what? They responded to my email the next day telling me that my kids would get the chance to Skype with Mr. Marc for 15 minutes on February 6th. We can ask him questions and talk to him about his adventures. My third graders are over the moon! Don't you just love modern technology? We started a list of possible questions right away. We don't want to waste time or ask silly stuff!

Here are my kiddos enjoying some fitness fun.  Go check them out and join! "Like" them on Facebook, too! Maybe you will get a Skype session.
One more little thing....I was checking my Google+ page (anyone else using that?) and came across a blog post from Primary in Idaho. I headed over to see that Debra is doing something called 365 Blogs to Hop. She is trying to visit a blog each day for one year! What a fantastic idea and quite a goal! As I was reading her posts, I saw that my little ol' blog was mentioned! Debra wrote such nice comments! It really warms my heart to think that there is a teacher in Idaho (opposite end of the country from me) who appreciates what I have to say! ♥  So, if you are out and about blog hopping today, pop in to see Debra and show her some love!!
Happy Wednesday!


  1. Wow, I've never heard of Mr. Marc, but it sounds like a wonderful program! I'll bet your students are thrilled with the opportunity to talk with him :)

    I'll have to check that out - I love ways to get my kiddos up and moving.

  2. Thanks for the shout out! I have been having fun finding new blogs and all the great ideas out there! I will have to try the Mr. Marc program the next time we have weather too cold for going outside! I just got my projector and white board up. Unfortunately the white board is on the opposite wall from the be fixed next week. Left hand didn't tell the right hand :)

  3. Awesome find!!! Thanks for putting this out there. Definitely going to check it out :)
