Primary Use:

Integrating literacy while teaching fitness components. I use this as a warm up after it has been taught.

How App is used in classroom/gym:

Set Up: In the middle of the gym place iPads in a circle on turned over tubs. Post numbers, 0-10, on the walls representing aerobics, Some cones with strength/shape task cards on one side of gym and an alphabet task card on the opposite side of gym that represents flexibility.

Play: The app will randomly show a number, letter or shape when a student touches the white background. If a letter is shown student goes to the alphabet poster(s) and uses flexibility to stretch, twist and bend to form a letter and holds it for 10 seconds. I made my alphabet poster from two old Golden Books called Grover's Alphabet. Another option could be to take pictures of students doing the letters.

If a shape is shown the student goes to the strength/shape task card and does the corresponding strength activity. For example a circle represents a plank so students would hold a plank for 10 seconds.

If a number is shown the student goes to a wall and touches that number and every number lower than it. If they got the number 3 they would touch 3,2,1,0. If they got the number 8 they would touch 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0. Numbers represent aerobics.
