BOKS has been an amazing physical activity resource to get students moving throughout the school day. Our partnering Georgia schools enjoy bringing BOKS activities to their students.
Health Educator @ HealthMPowers
This 12-week curriculum focuses on getting elementary kids moving while developing a functional fitness skill of the week (ex. squat, push up, plank). Each class includes a free play period, warm up, skill, running related activities, class game, and short nutritional talk.
This 12-week curriculum focuses on developing basic fundamental movement skills (kicking, catching, throwing, striking) and fitness principles (strength, endurance, coordination) through fun activities and games suitable for K-8 students and includes an age-specific nutrition component.
Targeted at older students, this curriculum “hides” functional fitness skills and concepts within games, relays, and obstacle courses. By combining traditional playground games, typical ball sports and fast paced relay races and obstacle courses, BOKS provides the moderate to vigorous physical activity programming.
The curriculum keeps young kids (aged 2-5) active throughout their day as well as teaches them about healthy eating habits. The early childhood curriculum provides younger children a safe, fun environment to practice skills through play, while building confidence and developing lifelong healthy habits.
BOKS Bursts are short 1 to 10 minute in-classroom physical activities created to help kids stay active throughout the school day, energizing their brains for enhanced learning. All Bursts, whether individual, partner, or team focused, are designed with a classroom setting in mind and can be performed with minimal space.
Yoga and Mindfulness
Yoga and Mindfulness
BOKS and Tara Stiles (founder of STRALA Yoga) teamed up to create fun and easy yoga and mindfulness activities. Designed to activate the body’s relaxation response by breathing deep, matching your breath and body together, and moving your whole body in harmony with itself, these activities are perfect for students of all ages.
