    4. For a little fun and movement try this active learning game.

    What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?
    To play this game, the kids line up a good distance away from the player chosen to be Mr. Fox. The kids shout, "What time is it, Mr. Fox?" And "Mr. Fox" answers with a time of day. The kids then get to take that number of steps toward him. Hughes, however, suggests a twist: "When the kids are called over, the parent (or Mr. Fox) can implement the use of imagination by saying things like 'Take two elephant steps over,' or 'Take three steps like a mouse.' Kids love to pretend to be animals." The first player to pass Mr. Fox wins.
