Brain Gym, Teacher’s Edition
Brain Gym has become a classic. If you are not already using Brain Gym, you’re in for a treat. Brain Gym is a series of simple and enjoyable movements designed to enhance whole-brain learning. The basic idea is that the Cross Crawl, Footflex, Grounder and other exercises and postures work out the brain and improve learning. Midline movements improve integration of our two-sided brain. Lengthening activities help students make connections between the front and back of the brain. Energy exercises and deepening attitudes enhance brain-body relations. Plus, there’s a section with exercises for oral reading, reading comprehension, organization skills, spelling, math, creative writing and more.
Send those brains to the gym.
