Exercise before the bell may improve young children's focus
from The Wall Street Journal
Sitting still and listening to the teacher can be a challenge for young children, especially after a long vacation. Scheduling a physical-education class before the morning bell could improve their focus, suggests a small study in Preventive Medicine Reports. Researchers found that children spent more time following instructions and working quietly at their desk — so-called on-task behaviors — on days they participated in a school-run physical-activity program before the start of morning classes.
