Brain Gym

Dear everybody,

I've added a new link today to my list of "Sites I follow".
It's a link to the official "Brain gym" site.
I don't know if you're familiar with this term. I was first introduced to Brain gym during my course at Pilgrims last year.
Since then I've been using it in class and it really has a positive benefit on motivation and concentration.
Students find it strange at first, but fun when they're used to it!
As you can read at the official site:

Mission Goals: We utilize the Brain Gym (R) educational model to:

  • promote play and the joy of learning
  • draw out and honor innate intelligence
  • build awareness regarding the value of movement in daily life
  • emphasize the ability to notice and respond to movement-based needs
  • encourage self-responsibility
  • leave each participant appreciated and valued
  • empower each participant to better take charge of his own learning
  • encourage creativity and self expression
  • inspire an appreciation of music, physical education and the fine arts
