This week because we are learning about the number 8, I would like you to do some exercise counting to 8. Before you try these exercises notice how you feel. Is your heart beating fast or slow? Are you sweaty and out of breath?


Try and do these exercises:

8 jumps

8 hops

8 star jumps

8 touch the ground and stretch to the sky jumps

8 throws and catches with a ball


 How do you feel at the end? Is your heart beating faster now? Are you sweating and out of breath?

Talk about how exercise affects the body and why it is important in keeping our bodies and minds fit and healthy.
