Why are purposeful movement activities important?
Neuroscience shows the relationship between the brain and body plays a critical role in the child's overall development and ability to learn. Research shows, practicing specific movements, can strengthen these connections and improve reading, writing, memory tasks, & allow children to absorb & retain information more efficiently.
What types of purpose movement activities are critical to learning?
There are 12 critical areas necessary for a child to develop in order to achieve their full academic potential. These are called the 12 Foundations of Learning Readiness:
1- Crossing the Midline - Cross Lateralization
2- Body in Space - Vestibular/Proprioception
3- Balance - Spatial Orientation
4- Visual Development - Encoding Symbols
5- Rhythm - Beat Awareness and Beat Competency
6- Tactile Learning- Sensory Motor and Fine Motor Skills
7- Motor Skills - Locomotor and Nonlocomotor Skills
Includes: teacher and student cue cards, station banners, door graphic, & kinesthetic classroom poster set!

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.

Teaching Through Movement
Based on classroom experience, this easy to read book is perfect for the busy teacher who wants to laugh a little while learning the quickest way to incorporate movement in the classroom. She infuses humor while providing simple and quick examples that can make anyone feel successful! 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.
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.
Energizing Brain Breaks 2
This book is the sequel to the popular Energizing Brain Breaks. Each of the 50 new activities will get your body moving and help you re-engage in your task. These brain breaks can be used re-energize yourself, your students, your colleagues, or your audience.
