Keep Kids Fit! Classroom Activity Breaks is a multi-media fitness and educational resource for teachers Pre-K – 5th grades. Written by Rocker/fitness guru Miss Amy ® it includes:
  • 114 Lesson Plans that Connect to Core Curriculum: Literature, Art, Social Studies, Science, Math and Nutrition
  • Book with Easy-to-Use Choreography in Pictures
  • Downloadable GRAMMY® Nominated Music for 12 Classroom Activity Breaks

With Phys Ed classes and recess time being cut back, Keep Kids Fit!  helps educators meet the National Association for Sport and Physical Education standards, including the recommended guideline of 150 minutes per week of instructional physical education for elementary school children.  In 2013 the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, in partnership with the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, reviewed the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.  Their Midcourse Report advises several strategies, including “adding short bouts of physical activity to existing classroom activities.” 

The Experts Praise Miss Amy’s Keep Kids Fit!

“An exhilarating, well researched and adventurous way to get kids hooked on exercise!!!  This guide is easy to follow and goes right along with the Physical Activity Guidelines outlined by the President’s Council on  Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.  A must-have for any classroom”.   - Paula L. Slusher, RN, MSN, American Academy of Pediatrics
“Miss Amy’s lesson plans are fantastic!  She gets them moving time and time again!  The lyrics are a big bonus as they are educational and send a positive message!" -  Tracy Radler, Physical Education Lesson Plan Specialist

“The warm-up activity song ‘Rise and Shine Little Star’ captured my attention immediately.  It is an excellent way to transition into the start of a school day.  If students engage with the music and learn in this fun way it could change the whole direction for everyone in the classroom”. -  JoAnn Younger Ray, RN, BSN, CSN-NJ School Nurse

Keep Kids Fit! was created by multi-awarded GRAMMY® singer/songwriter and fitness expert Miss Amy®.  Dubbed The First Lady of Musical Fitness by the National Children's Entertainment Blog, Miss Amy® was awarded a GRAMMY® Nomination for her FITNESS ROCK & ROLL album of 2011.  She is a multi-disciplined trained fitness professional, serves as an Official Advocate for the President's Challenge Program (a program of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition) and was named President’s Challenge All -American in September 2010.
