I LOVE Brain Gym because I have seen what it can do for my students. I have had high school Juniors track me down (outside of class) and ask me for Brain Gym help. However many of my posts have science support of the importance of cross crawl, etc. I hope some of my articles will help answer some of the questions posted in this article. I am not a scientist. I am teacher. I see what BG does in my classroom and thats why I love it.
This article is called "Brain Gym Makes me Sad". It seems like a rant but the comments make for good thoughts and discussion. Pinning to read more on later...
La méthode Brain Gym est basée sur un ensemble de mouvements simples et ludiques. Ils peuvent être pratiqués par tous et ont pour objectif d'optimiser les apprentisages, comme l'écriture.

Free signs to help with b & d confusion - Thanks to Young and Lively Kindergarten

This is a great idea for elementary students to learn because most students do not notice that the lowercase b is hidden within the capital B. However, students may mistakenly associate the uppercase P as lowercase b.

I looked in my kitchen for what we had a lot of. Washing up liquid, [or dish soap] is what we had, so in it went into a bowl of cornflour! I stirred it up and mushed it together and a wonderous sensory dough appeared in front of my eyes. ;)

Tot Treasures: SLIME Make Rainbow Slime with just 2 ingredients Clear glue and liquid starch
Rainbow slime recipe- Only two ingredients and an endless day of play! There are a few ways to make slime, however I found this recipe works best. 1 1/2 cups of CLEAR glue and 1 1/2 cups of liquid starch. The liquid starch we used was the brand STA-FLO, you can find it at your local grocery store with the laundry detergent or you can purchase on amazon. You mix it all together, separate the slime into a few small bowls and add food coloring to each bowl. You only need a few drops for each.

Matching shapes activity. The set up gave me an idea for plane trip activities -- make a felt board on cardboard that will fold up. Add a felt pocket or two, and I have a place to keep all the play pieces. If I'm really going to do this, I probably ought to get started now so that I actually get it done in time...

Pom Poms glued onto dry erase marker caps = instant erasers. V - I like it, but I am going to use loose pompoms (some big some small) to encourage grasp.... also I wonder how long the pompoms would stay on the markers (I think they might come off easily - oh well, then the kids have to use pinch anyway!)
