We teach kids that a healthy life style is fun and rewarding

Fly Movement is the first kids’ health program that provides students an opportunity to reach a fitness goal through fun, rewarding team competition using fitness trackers. As a result, they learn how to develop goal setting habits, their fitness activity increases, and they establish a positive feeling towards physical activity.

How does our program work?

Simple: We Engage Kids with a Fitness Tracker and a Challenge, motivate the kids to move and track results, and reward the students with prizes such as basketballs, soccer balls, frisbees, jump ropes, sidewalk chalk, hoola-hoops, and other equipment if they reach their goal. Fly Movement is a six week program for participating 3rd and 4th grade classrooms. The fitness trackers record moves and miles and during the program a challenge is given to the students to reach a certain number of fitness moves and if they are successful, they will win prizes.

Fly Movement volunteers visit the kids at least 3 times over the six week period and leads the kids in fun physical exercises. Fly members and volunteers also encourage the kids to write down their short and long term goals in their Fly Movement Fitness Tracker / Goal booklet that each student receives. Encouraging kids to develop a competitive psyche and goal setting habits are part of the program’s main mission.

What Teachers Say about Fly Movement

 

“Since joining the Fly Movement program, my classroom has been more eager to go outside and do more physical activities,” said Erick Huerta, third grade teacher at KIPP Dream Prep. “Even I have become more active in physical exercises due to the program. I am also discovering that it is bringing my students’ families closer. I have parents joining their children in bike rides, jogs and other physical activities.”

“Fly Movement came to Brookline at a perfect time! As the STAAR exam approached, I needed students to be able to work and stay focused for longer periods of time. I remember times when my students walked into my classroom and seemed dazed and unfocused. It would take me a good while to get them going. Once they received their trackers, they walked in alert and attentive. Students walked in telling me how many moves they already had and wanting to compare their moves with mine. We loved wearing our trackers and trying to exceed the prior day’s moves. Fly Movement made us more aware of our daily physical activity and motivated us to be more physically active. The extra exercise clearly appears to have worked on our energy levels.” – Sandra Salazar, Brookline Elementary Teacher
