Movement Programs at School

Inspired by Alberta’s initiative, Don’t walk in the Hallway, this Manitoba school was inspired to install a Sensory Path.

This is such a fun and fantastic way to work out the wiggles so students can renew themselves and reenter their classroom ready to learn.

Chevalier sees a strong future for movement programs in schools. “I think a lot of schools are embracing opportunity for choice in seating in the classrooms, and this just directly complements that concept.”Brandy Chevalier, Principal, Roland School

She hopes such exercise “can become a preventative measure for some behaviour issues that might happen by a child who cannot regulate themselves to sit in class.”

My Mentor: Samantha Moe

Samantha Moe, founder of Mad2Glad, is a passionate, positive and empowering visionary. She has taken the elephant in the room, named it, studied it and figured out a way to embrace it and overcome it. Both as a parent and a teacher, this Mad2Glad work heals the weak spot, the WHAT DO I DO and that’s the one thing, no matter how educated we’ve become, that nobody but Samantha has figured out.

This blueprint is a system, rooted in neuroscience, child development and the experience of professionals and parents – and it works! I’m so grateful that she’s chosen to share her wisdom to help more and more families find calm and enjoyment in their family’s lives.
