As such, BOKS has launched new resources that will suit kids of any learning scenario, location, or age!

St. Patrick’s Day Alphabet Game

St. Patrick’s Day, celebrated on March 17th, can be a great excuse to wear green and search for the Luck of the Irish! It can also be a fun holiday to implement games into your class to get everyone up and moving.

For classroom teachers, this quick activity will get your students out of their seats, help get the blood flowing, and help them re-focus their energy for the rest of the lesson.

Educational professionals at every level face daily pressures to ensure they are creating safe and successful learning environments for their students. With an ever evolving and growing list of educational priorities, we understand that it can be challenging to get buy-in from school leaders when looking to implement a new program (no matter how beneficial that program may be.)

Understanding these challenges, we wanted to create a tool for parents, teachers and educators to use to spread the word about the benefits of the BOKS program as well as the ease of implementation for the school. Whether you are currently running a BOKS program in your school or you are looking to start a program and need a little support – we hope this video testimonial from administrators at all levels will help you gain the buy-in you need to bring BOKS to your school community.

Thank you to all who participated – we appreciate your continued support of our program and love seeing the impact its had on your students!

Fruits & Veggies Month

Happy National Fresh Fruit & Veggie Month! It’s a great month to enjoy those REAL freshly harvested veggies and fruits which are super sweet and yummy. Don’t be fooled though by fruit-flavored snacks, fruit leathers, or juices–REAL fresh fruit is the best choice. Speaking of fruits, remember to choose a variety of colorful ones. You can get your RED, WHITE, and BLUE on (and in) as you celebrate Flag Day (6/14) and next month on July 4th with a patriotic fruit salad of strawberries, bananas and blueberries. And since summer is here (6/21) and the heat is on, stay hydrated with simple, refreshing and energizing water. It not only makes up 2/3 of the earth’s surface, but 2/3 of you. So “chill out” with a glass of H2O instead of sugary, energy-sapping soda, juice, or sports drinks throughout the summer, but especially to celebrate World Ocean’s Day on 6/8. One more celebration in June is Father’s Day (6/18) and just like dads may sleep in on their special day, you can too. Aim for 8-10 hours nightly—uninterrupted sleep is key so get rid of the screens that may keep you up (or wake you up) like phones, TVs, or computers. You’ll feel better and perform better in school—which isn’t quite done yet for many kids, so finish the year strong with plenty of sleep, water, and fruits and veggies. Happy June!

Mindful Eating

Happy May! The 5th of the month is Cinco de Mayo and Mexican food can be delicious & nutritious: protein in beans, veggies in fresh salsa, and healthy fats in guacamole. Technically the tomato in that salsa is a fruit and that’s OK! Speaking of fruits, thank mom this Mother’s day for the many, many things she does for you and was right about—including telling you that an apple a day can keep the Dr. away. Lots of other fruits can do that too, so choose them often. Eating fruit is healthier than drinking it even if in the form of 100% juice because of the fiber. Instead of juice or other sugary drinks, have plenty of water. It not only helped sprout those May flowers (from those April showers), but it will keep you growing and energized too! With that extra energy, celebrate Bike to Work Week by—you guessed it—going for a bike ride. Your “job” = school, so ask permission to bike there with family or friends or plan a ride afterwards. Wear a helmet! May finishes up with Memorial Day and offers another great chance to bike but also a fun time to cook out. Try grilling chicken or fish instead of the typical burgers/dogs & include veggies/fruits instead of chips this year for a delicious and nutritious meal. And remember to Sit Down, Slow Down, and Savor the Flavor of that amazing meal connecting with your family and friends—that means tune into each other and turn off the TV, video game, phone screen!
