To successfully help your child learn and grow academically, it’s important to know how the brain works and functions so you can foster learning. Movement-based programs can create an environment that may enhance processing in the brain and may improve the student’s ability to learn in the classroom, process what the teacher says, build relationships, and prepare the brain for higher levels of academic requirements. The more finely tuned the brain is, the more efficiently students process information.
As you may know or have read, the brain uses both the left and right sides for creativity, to read more efficiently, solve problems, study homework, retain facts, and much more. By incorporating movement into daily activities, you can train the brain to improve in the following ways:
- Read faster and more accurately
- Comprehend what was read
- Improve eye tracking
- Increase memory span
- Enhance performance in sports and physical activities
