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.

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!
