Get Moving!

We all know how important exercise is, and we need to teach our children as well. It seems all too easy these days to spend free time occupied with the many electronic devices available, which leads to a lot of sitting and not much physical activity. I wrote a poem to encourage children (and adults as well) to get moving!

Get yourself moving,
go outside and play. 
It's good to exercise
each and every day.
             Go for a walk,               
hop, skip and run,
play a lively game
and have a little fun!
It's good for your body
to stretch and move.
Getting exercise can
help your health improve.
So don't just sit around
and waste the day away.
Get up and get going,
make the most of your day!
