Move for Thought PreK-K instructional videos
All instructional videos were recorded outdoors due to COVID19 pandemic. However, the activities were developed to be used in the classroom (large group, small group, transitions) as well as outdoors. Instructional videos for transitions were not developed as those are short and easy to use.
Special thanks to our little friends, Arjun, Caleb, Callista, Cate, Lois, Marietta, Neil, Olivia, Scott, and Zoe who volunteered to participate in the development of the instructional videos (and a big thank you to their families)!
Testimonies from preschool teachers after implementation of the program
Interviewer 4 (28Y): "I would love to have it in every classroom. It made things so much easier and it included a lot of things that I wouldn't think of on my own....It was really awesome. I just can't tell you how much I loved it!"
Int.5 (48Y): "I think it is really very valuable. Like I said, it is not just okay, let's let them play for five minutes throughout the day. It is focused on skills that kids need and are important for them to have."
Int. 7 (56 Y): “It was nice because it gave me options on how to do an activity quickly, and also how to expand it, how to incorporate literature in it, and the standards in it, ..it was great because it was all right there in a page.”
Int.7 (56Y): “The children looked forward to it [the activities]. …One child has trouble with group time, focus ability, sitting, not talking, not making noise, and when we were doing the [Move for Thought] physical activities he could really do it, he could get up, he could do the moving… and when he was done he was “Oh, I can do this!”.”
Int.8 (41Y): “There were some children who opened up socially better… the more quiet... but now, some of the games that we played made them interact with other children, I find them more social. …Some of them are identifying numbers and letters better. They knew them but not as fast as we did now that we utilized them more.”
Int.9 (37Y): [after the transition to other classroom activities] “they wanted to sit down and do their art… they were able to focus a little bit easier.”
