The transition from the regular school day to the after school program can go a multitude of ways for students. Energy, attentiveness, and excitement are all challenges after school staff must navigate to facilitate learning and growth after school. LitART’s Opening Magic activities center around movement, cooperation, and fun to help achieve these goals. While many educators use some of these techniques, offering additional ways to start after school time is where LitART can help.
These quick ways to engage prepare students for the core focus of the lessons and activities to follow. Lasting about five minutes, students will feel refreshed and ready to learn. Every teacher, instructor, coordinator, and parent needs a collection of these types of activities in their back pocket.
