Brain Gym® is a system of quick and enjoyable physical activities that directly enhance brain function to provide a kinesthetic foundation for learning. Brain Gym® is taught in more than 40 languages and used in homes, schools and businesses in more than 80 countries.
When done on a regular basis, Brain Gym® movements will assist in the integration of the left and right hemispheric functions of the brain, enhancing reading, writing, math skills, language and memory. In this state of whole-brain integration, learners of all ages are able to draw out innate gifts and talents, making learning easier, less stressful and more joyful.
Brain Gym® is also very effective in reducing the emotional stress so often created by learning experiences. When students are focused in a more relaxed manner, learning tasks are accomplished easier and behavior improves. Self responsibility and self-esteem are heightened as students begin to use Brain Gym® for themselves. Teachers often notice an improvement in cooperative play and work when students use Brain Gym® on a regular basis.
As we prepare for the upcoming CRCT testing in April, we are confident that our school-wide use of Brain Gym® will be an advantage to our students. If you are not familiar with Brain Gym®, ask your child! They're experts! You can also visit the Brain Gym® website @ www.braingym.org for more information.
