"Stress Free Learning For School & Home"

Teacher's Tip of the Week

School In-Service

Brain Gym has been developed especially for the class room setting. It is easy and effective to apply allowing each individual student to achieve at their own learning PACE as nature intended.

These techniques are so user friendly that Brain Gym® is now used in schools in over 100 countries. An Internationally sort after and annually award winning scientificly proven system that powerfully works!

THE BIG PICTURE: Children learning successfully while assisting each other happily and supportively in a positive co-creative environment.  Commonly, their self responsibility model is also taken home to help family relationships, stresses and 'aliveness'. Creating healthier and happier families and communities who love to communicate and are excited about life long learning.

TEACHER'S TIPS OF THE WEEK

Challenge:  You notice that Johnny is having difficulty sitting still with what appears to be a very uncomfortable and stressful maths task.  His concentration is diminished and he begins to distract others quietly working around him.

Solutions:  Quietly ask Johnny to go to the back of the room and do a series of Cross Crawl
or say to him: "Johnny, I've notices that you are having difficulty sitting still so I though that you may like to have a run to stretch your legs."  Johnny nods with a big smile of relief.
"Would you please take this note to Mr Jones in room 32.  He is at the other side of the school.  I'd like you to run with large steps to his class room and then do some 'Cross Crawl' and 'Calf Pump' out side our class room if you feel you need too."  (You have an arrangement set up with Mr Jones for this purpose).

The next time that Johnny can't focus, (leading to uncontrollable wriggling), instead of 'trying harder' which always results in him becoming more uncomfortable and disruptive, he comes to you requesting if he can deliver a note to Mr Jones.  The children tend to really appreciate your support and acknowledgement of his learning difficulty, becomes self managing, happier and more confident with achieving given tasks with greater success.

IN-SERVICE TRAINING FOR TEACHER'S

CAN BRAIN GYM HELP ? YES!!!

BRAIN GYMpromotes sustainable brain integration by using specific movements to address blocks to learning, develop neural pathways and improve coordination both mentally and physically. Brain Gym has been developed especially for the class room setting, is fast, easy and effective to apply allowing each individual student to achieve at their own learning PACE as nature intended.
 

After an initial training course, many Teachers are easily and successfully using and experimenting with Brain Gym in their classrooms.  They are consistently seeing many beneficial changes in their pupils as well as their own stress levels. Their student's work more happily and more constantly. They are more relaxed even in the play ground as students begin to self moderate successfuly with 2 minutes of Brain Gym to settle arguments and agressive behaviour.
Even more beneficial is when Brain Gym is promoted as a whole school policy. Many school senior staff and teachers have been asking for advice on the best way to achieve this.
 
In response The Brain Gym Centre of WA evolved a package called "STRESS FREE LEARNING FOR SCHOOL AND HOME" as a guide to planning the systematic implementation of Brain Gym into the school. The goal is to introduce Brain Gym to the school and integrate its use into the Teaching and Learning process. This will assist in promoting measurable improvements in:
  • ETHOS of the whole school.
  • ATTAINMENT of the whole school with consistently higher academic results.
  • CHILD CENTRED INDEPENDENT LEARNING
  • IMPROVEMENT IN SOCIAL INTERACTIONS - especially with violent behaviour.
  • A CO-CREATIVE AND EASILY SUSTAINABLE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
  • HAPPIER AND MORE RELAXED STUDENTS AND STAFF
