Brain Gym

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.

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.
