9780942143126: Hands On: How to Use Brain Gym in the Classroom

In this photo-filled book, authors Isabel and Marcelle, who are teachers in the South African school system, have captured the joy of learning through their use of 25 of the Brain Gym activities and 14 of the Vision Gym movements. The book shows variations for many of the activities, each taking a minute or less to do, and includes sections on the physical skills of learning and related academic abilities: visual and auditory skills for ease of reading; finger dexterity, spatial orientation, and shoulder-girdle stabilization for ease of printing and handwriting; and crossing the midline for whole-body coordination. Two Brain Gym participation stories: "The Spaceman" and "The Fairy Princess" are included.

About the Author:

Marcelle Goldsmith is an occupational therapist who specializes in working with children who have learning difficulties. Isabel Cohen is a remedial reading teacher who assists those of any age who have learning challenges. Marcelle and Isabel, both Brain Gym Instructors in South Africa, also teach a hands-on course designed to give educators playful ways to implement movement-based learning.

Review:

The Hands On book gives teachers, parents, and occupational therapists many practical, visual, step-by-step ideas on how to use the Brain Gym movements to support children as they discover reading, handwriting, spelling, or math. If you've wondered how you might implement this work in your own life or in your classroom to encourage students reawakening to the physical skills of learning Hands On will get you started on an incredible adventure. --Paul and Gail Dennison (originators of the Brain Gym learning program)
