35+ Ways to Have Fun Learning through Movement from The PLAY Group

Learning is a lot more memorable and exciting when it is paired with movement!

Today I am excited to share 35+ ways to have fun learning through movement! 

I have gathered some of my favorite Move & Learn posts from several blogging friends that teach simple skills while kids move around. Some of the skills that are taught include recognizing alphabet letters, identifying sight words, counting and recognizing numbers, learning to identify and spell your name, naming colors and shapes, along with learning basic gross motor skills.

Each category below features several activities. Click on the links for full instructions. Once you've checked out all of these, we'd love for you to come and share any other favorites with us in the comments!
