Brain Dance

Posted on October 22nd, 2013 by

Here is a teaching idea for all of you. The link is to an activity called “Brain Dance”. It was developed to simulate the movement patterns of a baby’s development. As the article states, it has seen great results in the classroom. In fact, one of my dance professors suggested I do this activity with my class before standardized testing because of the positive effects seen from it. I am hoping to fully sample the activity in class for all of you sometime this semester, but this link gives you a preview to it! I tried this during kindergarten practicum and the students engaged in the activity quite well!
