Moving Your Bootie Makes Your Brain Work Better!
Today I’m working with Public Health and Head Start staff at a professional development conference hosted by Illinois Southern Seven Health Department. I’ve been reminded of days – before my girls were born – when I worked as an adaptive movement specialist in Head Start programs. Science has shown kids learn better, are better behaved in class, when they have the opportunity to move. I was delighted to be able to share movement activities to support learning colors, letters, and simple math. Today I’m bringing some of the same concepts to adults – helping support decision making and creativity through physical activity in the Pay Your Body Back program.
