Default Re: HELP... Kindergarten games

I have a much smaller kindergarten class, but they are pretty wound up. I try to mix up activities where they are really active for 5-10 mins and then quiet for 5-10 mins. One suggestion for active stuff is really simple but it tires the kids out. I make them do Vocab Jumping Jacks. Pick three words or so and have them do jumping jacks to them. Sort of call them out military style and have them repeat the words while doing the jumping jacks, continue to change the three words over and over. You'll be surprised how long this will keep them engaged and also how well it gets that physical energy out so you can get their focus after. Good luck though, I don't envy you.
