To improve our brains, we have to move our bodies… Exercises involving learning a series of complex movements while coordinating one’s balance have been proven to generate a greater number of connections between neurons. These connections make it easier for children of all ages to learn. SPARK

Music, rhythm, repetitive practice of patterns … using balance and eye-tracking are all powerful tools for physical and mental learning.

Brain-compatible learning means that educators should weave math, movement, geography, social skills, role play, science, and recreational music lessons.

linking movement learning
Repetitive gross motor movement balances brain chemicals that calm behavior and elevates self esteem and self worth and accommodates ADD/ADHD (Jensen)

Exercise triggers BDNF that increases neuronal communication (Squires)

What makes us move is also what makes us think (Hesslow)

Linking Movement & Learning
linking movement learning18
RAS/Vestibular systems are turned on through movement for reading, math, and language (Hannaford)

Enthusiastic movement has been shown to improve behavior, mental focus, and memory retention of ADHD students (Wendt)

Exercise has the same effect and benefit as anti-depressant medications (Ratey)

Amazingly, the same part of the brain that’s processes movement is the same part of the brain that’s processing learning (Strick)

I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day . . . I’d rather one should walk with me than merely show the way. The eye is a better pupil and more willing than the ear. Fine counsel is confusing, but examples always clear.

See A Sermon

slide25

I soon can learn to do it, if you’ll let me see it done. I can see your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run. And the lectures you deliver may be very fine and true, but I’d rather get a lesson by observing what you do.

Movement is a central mission of the brain. Movement facilitates cognition (Sylvester)

Bodily Kinesthetic is one of eight multiple intelligences (Gardner)

Raising the heart rate oxygenates the brain and feeds it glucose (brain food) at a greater rate (Ratey)

GeoFitness = Linking Movement & Learning

More Movement – Smarter Kids http://articles.familylobby.com/79-more-movement-smarter-kids.htm

As Einstein so succinctly pointed out, “Learning is experience. Everything else is just information.”

The cerebellum, the part of the brain previously associated with motor control only, is now known to be a “virtual switchboard of cognitive activity.” Eric Jensen

don t quit
When things go wrong as they sometimes will, when the road you are trudging seems all uphill;

When the funds are low and the debts are high and you want to laugh, but you have to cry.

When life is pressing you down a bit, rest if you must, but please don’t QUIT.

Don’t QUIT
don t quit48
And many a failure turns about when you might have won had you stuck it out. So don’t give up though the pace seems slow, you may succeed with another blow.Don’t QUIT
don t quit49
Success is failure turned inside out the silver tint of the clouds of doubt. And you never can tell how close you are. It may be near when it seems so far.Don’t QUIT
