Physical Activity to Promote Early Literacy Development

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body;

it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
– John F. Kennedy

Literacy in Motion focuses on:

  • Research supporting the link between physical activity and literacy skills

  • Physical movement activities to support literacy skills development
