Movement is nature’s DAP! Child development and movement authority Gill Connell and her co-author Cheryl McCarthy explain the inseparable, learning relationship between the body and the brain while revealing the natural, common sense truths behind why kids do what they do and how kids learn how to learn. In this comprehensive workshop, Connell and McCarthy will outline the principles of the Kinetic Scale — an at a glance guide to preparing a well-balanced diet of movement for young children’s optimal development and classroom readiness. In addition, the authors will discuss the practicalities of integrating movement into early learning and early grade school environments with practical examples from their new book, Move, Play, and Learn with Smart Steps by Free Spirit Publishing.
Movement is at the core of how the body builds the brain for learning, beginning before birth and extending well into the early school years. The natural process of early childhood development begins with the body. In fact, movement primes the brain for learning, fostering the neural circuitry that forms the foundations for all learning. That’s why all young children need a carefully crafted diet of movement activities to promote optimal physical AND neurological development that invest in the body for health, the brain for learning, and the emotional confidence needed to conquer challenges head on in and out of the classroom.
