The Interational Child Resource Institute is the international  website I chose and the section I have spent the most time is the project “Commotion.”    The Project is a community space in San Francisco where children, families and educators are invited to learn and grow together through movement, sensory experiences and creative play.

They have developed a unique curriculum that incorporates tumbling, music,

dance, creative play, and martial arts as a means of fostering healthy

development, self-awareness, and self-expression.

nsory experiences, and creative play. This was of particular interest to me because our school does not have physical education and we have been searching for a program that we could bring to our school.

This organization has individuals and groups doing what they can to provide. For example a man rode his bike 470 miles to raise funds and another group walked raising up to 21, 000 dollars.

This organizations informs its readers mostly of updates abou current or past projects.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing that information. I wish my city had a program like the one you have shared with us. The projects are simple but they take a lot of heart to complete.

  2. Trisha,
    It is so important that programs like this are accessible to children. In this day and age children are missing out on opportunities to be active and physically fit. In the program where I work the children have 1 ½ hours of outside time each day. On Monday they have an additional fitness class and administrators are in talks to add daily tennis in the afternoon. I think is a bit much but I understand the spirit in which it is being done. I hope you all find a fitness program that works for your program.

  3. I love the fact that they include these activities. These are some of the first that schools have to drop because of funding. The truth is these programs really help students express themselves when they don’t relate to the daily 1+1= routine. This sounds great.
