HOW TO SURVIVE A COLD WINTER WEEK WITH SPD

This week has brought enormous challenges to our all children but especially those with SPD. Recess was taken away as the temperatures dipped dangerously low. As the week progressed both educational staff and parents began to notice the same thing. Their children were more fidgety, antsy, less focused, more easily frustrated etc. This is NOT a coincidence. We need to be mindful of the sensory nutrition that we provide our children as it is important for their bodies, learning and behavior.

Here are some things we can do indoors! Vary the intensity and variety as you see fit for the level of your child or students. Be creative!

  1. Wheelbarrel walking
  2. Wall push-ups or regular push-up
  3. Squats
  4. Trampolines
  5. Jumping Jacks
  6. Hop Scotch
  7. Simon Says
  8. Freeze Tag
  9. Twister
  10. Dancing
  11. Red Rover
  12. Cranium HulaBaLoo
