Virtual Recess – Fall 2020
TAKE A BREAK FROM VIRTUAL LEARNING
AND EXPLORE THE BENEFITS OF MOVING YOUR BODY!
for children of all ages
With most schools going virtual, children have less opportunities to move their bodies throughout the day. With virtual recess, recess comes right to your living room! Come and join an Emerge Occupational Therapist as we help your child find creative ways to get movement into their daily life. Each session, we will explore different types of movement, from circuit style workouts, to sports-themed workouts, yoga, and even some themed style workouts. Join us virtually and come and move with us!
***While this group is led by an occupational therapist, this group is not designed to be a therapeutic group. It is meant as a means to provide children with opportunities to explore movement in their daily lives. However, an occupational therapist’s brain is never off, so your child will likely experience benefits to their: gross motor skills, motor planning skills, bilateral coordination skills, emotional regulation skills, and much more!***
- Engaging in movement activities for 10-15 minutes intervals, 2-3x per day

When: A pre-recorded session will be released each Thursday from September 3rd – October 22nd
Time: Whenever works in your virtual learning schedule!
