I was introduced to the magic of brain gym today to calm students, help them focus, and aid in reading comprehension. I was told that brain gym should be taught to students and that the slightest movements of brain gym can work miracles.
I am eager to try this but wondering if anyone knows about brain gyms or has incorporated them into their own classroom. I came home and looked up videos on brain gyms to see several in action:
- Brain Buttons
- Cross Crawl
- Lazy 8’s
- Calf Pumps
- Thinking Caps
- Positive Points
Anything that can help create calm and focused middle schoolers I am all for. Would love to hear more on brain gyms and eager for my official training on April 13th.
