Thinking on your Feet
200+ Lesson Plans by Jean Moize
Brain research supports the link of movement to learning. Experts are saying that physical activity boosts brain function. Thinking on Your Feet has over 200 lesson plans using kinesthetic teaching strategies to teach academic concepts in reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. The lessons are organized according to Gardner's Multiple Intelligences, basic brain concepts, and national standards in each of the major subject areas. The advocacy information included supports the need for daily quality physical education in our schools. Brain research information and brain game activities give the teacher the basis of how to put learning into action in the gymnasium or classroom with students thinking on their feet!

Action Based Learning Lessons for Elementary Math
Research shows us the strong link between movement and math achievement
+ Ability to focus for longer periods of time on difficult math problems (CDC)
+ Increased confidence & lower test taking anxiety (CDC)
By understanding the link between movement and math, ABL is able to apply this research to the classroom to provide student's an advantage in math. These are simple, proven methods delivered in a 1 page format for the educator to easily implement and help students anchor math concepts.
Each lesson uses purposeful movement layered with mathematics to ..
+ To reinforce math concepts & anchor learning in the classroom
+ To prepare the brain for learning new math concepts
+ To prepare the brain for testing
The lessons are designed to be paired with existing curriculum standards, and cover the following math concepts:

Science on the Move: The World of Movement
Reading Jogs the Mind
By: Jean Moize
Did you know you can beat stress, lift your mood, fight memory loss, sharpen your intellect, and function better than ever simply by elevating your heart rate and breaking a sweat? The evidence is incontrovertible: aerobic exercise physically remodels our brains for peak performance.
In SPARK, John Ratey, MD embarks upon a fascinating journey through the mind-body connection, illustrating that exercise is truly our best defense against everything from depression to ADD to addiction to menopause to Alzheimer's. Filled with amazing case studies (such as the revolutionary fitness program in Naperville, Illinois, that has put the local school district of 19,000 kids first in the world of science test scores), SPARK is the first book to explore comprehensively the connection between exercise and the brain. It will change forever the way you think about your morning run.

About the Author
Stacey is an Action Based Learning Certified Trainer, with the first kinesthetic classroom in the nation. Her goal is to change today's classroom into one that incorporates movement to enhance learning for all students. She will make this happen by donating 10% of the profits from this book for other classrooms. Fifth-grade math and science teacher by day, she is a presenter and shares her passion for kinesthetic learning with others during the summer. Stacey was nominated for the Mark Cobb Award for Change in 2014 and was Pinckney Elementary Teacher of the Year 2013. A self-professed nerd, she loves taking college classes and has earned her Masters+30. Considering the fact Stacey was the stereotypical daydreamer in class makes this quite an accomplishment for someone who didn't think they were smart enough to be a teacher. When she is not talking about kinesthetic learning, you can find her running (slowly) or riding bikes (faster) with her husband. Her love language is quality time and there is no time better spent than with her family, eating amazing dinners with a glass of grape or two.
