N. Belsito, Grade 1 Teacher (Bellingham, MA)
Joan visited three times with my 1st grade class this school year to teach us (Students, Teacher, Paraprofessional) how to incorporate Brain Gym into our daily schedule. We immediately noticed how much the students were focused in class and how their academics slowly shifted while becoming more successful. We now use Brain Gym in our class on a daily basis to settle into the day and after transitions, ie, lunch, recess, specials. We also have “Brain Gym Leaders” each day to facilitate PACE. These exercises have helped students to focus and make transition times easier.
