20 Cognitive-Physical + Executive Function Activities Using Music, Movement and Pro-social Interaction to Improve Cognition & Self-Regulation in Child
We will apply current neuroscience research to enhance children’s skill sets in five distinct domains, thinking, self-regulation, learning, behavior and social-emotional skills. We shall learn patterned music, movement and Executive Function coaching activities to help children become empowered learners with better attention, memory and self-control. Research shows that children with better organization, planning, attention, inhibition and social-interactive skills learn academic content and build lifelong adaptive skills with greater ease. Direct executive function skill coaching with an emphasis on building thinking skills can help students function now and in the future with greater success.
Teachers attending will receive Dr. Lynne Kenney's book: 70 Play Activities For Better Thinking, Self-Regulation, Learning & Behavior.
