CLASSROOM TEACHERS CAN GET KIDS MOVING SAFELY WITH MARATHON KIDS CONNECT—IT’S FREE!
With the evolving coronavirus pandemic causing major changes in the structure of schooling, many classroom teachers are adding a new item to their job description—PE teacher. In response, Marathon Kids has made our programming free for all teachers. Just sign up and you’ll gain free access to lesson plans, at-home movement cards, games, resources, and our brand-new digital lap-tracking app and reporting platform, Marathon Kids Connect.
With Marathon Kids Connect, it’s simple for teachers to track students’ physical activity, access free PE resources, and get kids moving safely, indoors and outdoors, on-campus and at home.
CLASSROOM TEACHERS, SAVE TIME AND ENERGY
✔️ Free Resources for Teachers – With free lesson plans for teachers, including warm-up activities, running games, and other free PE resources, the new platform makes it a snap for teachers to assist with helping students meet physical education requirements.
✔️ QR Codes for Students – Students have their very own ID cards with unique QR codes to scan as they complete each lap or physical activity.
✔️ Physical Activity Tracking Made Easy – With Marathon Kids Connect, teachers can use the front-facing camera of a phone or iPad as a self-scan station for students—no Wi-Fi required! Teachers may also enter mileage and physical activity manually, to ensure safe distancing.
✔️ Reports at Your Fingertips – The app automatically uploads mileage totals to your Marathon Kids Connect account, making it easy to check your students’ progress. Share leaderboards and celebrate milestones with principals, runners, parents, and the entire school!
HELP YOUR STUDENTS GO THE DISTANCE
✔️ Encourage Self-Efficacy – Kids partner with teachers in their physical education, just by scanning ID cards! Our free digital mileage counter is easy to use and shows kids their progress at a glance.
✔️ Make Remote Learning Fun – Since remote learning may continue to be part of the schooling landscape, Marathon Kids Connect helps bridge the gap between school and home by allowing parents to share miles run at home.
✔️ Celebrate Milestones – During periods of remote learning, parents can encourage their children to keep moving at home and join you in celebrating their child’s progress and achievements.
