Moving with Mutt-i-grees
The Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum takes a whole child approach to education, including not only social and emotional development, but also cognitive development (see for example, the vocabulary and readings in each lesson) and physical development. The importance of physical well-being and fitness cannot be over-emphasized. In many of the lessons we show that regular exercise helps create a healthy, balanced dog. It’s also important for students, and the benefits of physical fitness extend beyond good health; studies show that providing students with daily opportunities to be active can increase their happiness and their productivity in school.
In this column we include fun ways to integrate movement in the classroom, featuring more “Mutt-i-gree® Moves of the Month.”
