As an elementary school teacher, grappling with the challenge of losing your students' focus right in the midst of a lesson stands as one of the most daunting hurdles.
Considering the limited attention spans that children often exhibit, taking proactive measures to keep them enthralled becomes an essential strategy.
This is where the magic of Kids Freeze Dance comes into play—a trusted resource that teachers can harness to inject a dose of interactive amusement into lessons, all while ensuring valuable learning takes center stage.
Kids Freeze Dance is a streaming service for teachers and parents that features content themed educational videos mixed with purposeful movement. Each video features Jay on the Drums and emphasizes content spanning Kindergarten through Third Grade, while focusing on Math and Literacy concepts.
Why is movement important to learning? One main reason is that it increases brain development and neuron connections. It has also been observed to help access different areas of the brain for learning all while fostering connection with others and emotional regulation. This has been referred to as Purposeful Movement.
For the modern teacher, using a streaming service in their classroom has become commonplace. Kids Freeze Dance does not require a sign up fee and you can go for as long or as short as you’d like. Videos are added weekly and span many themes throughout the year such Fall, Halloween, Winter, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's, Day, Easter, Earth Day and Cinco de Mayo.
Kids Freeze Dance is perfect for public school teachers or homeschooling families. Learning should be fun and interactive and Jay on the Drums is committed to helping this become a reality for all children.
