Workshop Overview

Often when we see kids struggle in school we look to programs or processes that ‘stamp learning in’ instead of ‘draw out’ curiosity, interest and ease. 


We are taught some wonderful tools in Teacher Training Programs however where most programs fall short is teaching teachers how to notice the physical body for signs that they are not ready to physically perform the academic task OR it was introduced and practiced at a time where they were not ready and learning is cumulatively harder for that child.
 

In this workshop, participants will learn how all humans develop physically and how this process lays the foundation for higher level thinking/academic skills. 

Topics Covered

  • How our brain develops through physical movement and how this supports academic functioning.

  • 3 key physical indicators that may indicate the child will have/(has) a learning disability.

  • 4 movement activities from the Brain Gym program that can be taught in person or online in supporting children to move, learn and interact with greater ease.

This hands-on webinar will equip its participants with knowledge and skills to answer the following:

  • Are there students you work with who indicate they are learning under stress?

  • Who are they?

  • What indications do you notice in the physical body as they perform tasks?

  • What indications do you notice in their social/emotional actions?

  • How can I structure my teaching day to better support the physical skills of learning?

Methodology

  • Interactive presentation

  • Participants will get a chance to practice what they are learning in  small groups (online break-out rooms)

  • Post workshop handouts/resources
