Brain Gym

One way that Willard Central is On Track for Success this school year is through the strategic use of Brain Gym with our students.  Brain Gym is “educational kenisiology” that is committed to the principle that moving with intention leads to optimal learning.  Each Wednesday and Thursday at our morning Community Time school meeting, Mrs. Houghtaling is introducing a new strategy to our students and staff.  These “moves” help improve our concentration, listening, focus, and memory as we prepare for learning.  In a few months, our students and teachers will have a bag full of strategies to use in the classroom to help them be best prepared for everything from a math test to reading to a friend.  Ask your child to show you the Thinking Cap and the Energy Yawn (think Apolo Ohno before a speed skating match) and how they help them with listening, focus and concentration.
