Follow the cards in progression or pick and choose cards to focus on certain skills to encourage physical activity in the classroom.
- Green Deck: introduces students in grades K-6 to developmentally progressive, patterned rhythmic movements as they learn the basics of beat competency.
- Orange Deck: focuses on matching patterns and increases the demands on cognition and coordination for students in grades 2-5 as they march during activities.
- Purple Deck: ideal for grades 3-6 as it incorporates bilateral and cross-midline motor movements to increase cognitive-motor complexity.
- Red Deck: includes complex movements with changes in tempo and timing, while also encouraging students in grades 5-8 to think creatively while collaborating through fun, rhythmic, coordinative activities.
Each deck features 40 cards with step-by-step, image-illustrated activities; plus, a key card that explains how to do the movements and a card with overarching instructions and research. All laminated cards are 8-1/2" x 11" for easy visibility by the teacher and students. Card decks are held together with a key ring. Decks are available individually or in a Complete Set with all 4 decks.
