Pierre Lavoie's Challenge: Get up and move!
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
This is so neat. My son's school has registered in the Pierre Lavoie's Challenge: Get up and move! (Lève-toi et bouge!).
The challenge consist in your child doing 15 min. of exercise to accumulate "energy blocks". Each 15 min. = 1 block.
If a parent or close relative is exercising with the child at the same time the person can give his/her blocks to the child.
You fix a goal of energy blocks you want to accumulate. Schools are competing against each other.
At the end, each schools have prizes to draw among the children.
This said, having an autistic children, he wanted to see the blocks. I had a hard time explaining him that it is something you can't see just as electricity.
Anyhow, he his really enthusiastic about the idea and it makes us spend more quality time together. What a good idea.
