Fun Fitness: Cardio Drumming (ongoing)

Let's get our wiggles out in a fun way while listening to music! Grab two 18" pool noodles, paper towel tubes, or drumsticks, and pull up an exercise ball, desk, or TV tray. Let's have awesome indoor recess with some easy cardio drumming!

Class Experience

The goal of the class is to have fun "drumming" and moving to the beat of music.
I have been a full time in-person classroom teacher for 26 years and a part-time online teacher for over 4 years. My classroom kids love, love, love cardio drumming!
There is no homework, but I predict the kids will want to keep "drumming" and moving long after the class is over!
The kids will need 2 "sticks" to use for drumming. They may use actual drumsticks, 18" pool noodles (I cut mine easily with a serrated bread knife), or even just paper towel tubes. They may "drum" on whatever surface you choose, like a desk, TV tray, exercise ball, a chair, or a small table. I have both regular drumsticks and pool noodles as well as an exercise ball and TV tray. Sometimes it's fun to switch it up!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While the movements we use are generally very simple traditional moves using basic items, like with any physical activity, a parent may want to be close by while children are in class. You will want to make sure the circle of space your child is using for cardio drumming is free from dangerous or breakable items. You may also wish to review with your child your own house rules for participating in indoor recess activities. There is limited learner-to-learner interaction due to the nature of a physical movement class to music. For this same reason, students will need to be muted during the actual cardio drumming and movement part of class so everyone can hear the music and follow along to the movements while drumming. The kids may wish to wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle to class to stay hydrated. Athletic shoes are typically recommended for fitness classes, but if they are exercising on carpet (or another non-slippery surface), they may not want to wear shoes. That decision is up to the parent. Stretching before class, as with any physical activity, is always advised. ***Being on time for this class is very important. Once the music starts, it would be difficult for me to stop the activity in class to go back to the laptop to let late learners in (and I may not even see someone is waiting to get in once I am a distance away from the laptop during the movement activities).
