Kids Focus Success in ABQ Schools – Mission Avenue and Mitchell Elementary

Thank you so much to the amazing staff at Mission Avenue and Mitchell Elementary Schools in Albuquerque, NM for supporting Kids Focus, helping children focus and self-regulate using simple movements in the classroom.

Imagine your students starting the school year with enthusiasm, focus, concentration and self-regulation! Kids Focus gives teachers the competitive edge in helping children succeed with advanced brain and behavioral development and academic success. And Kids Focus helps implement the rubrics in NM TEACH and supports the Nurtured Heart Approach.

Celebrating Fantasic Children’s Brain/Body Balancing Workshops

Children’s Brain/Body Balancing – “Students have demonstrated growth!” Comment on using CBBB movements at Helen Cordero School – Pre-K – 2 grade

Thank you so much to all the parents, teachers and professionals who joined us on Saturday, September 8th in Albuquerque at the beautiful African American Performing Arts Center for the last day-long workshop in 2012 on how to use simple, controlled movements to help children focus, feel calm, concentrate and self-regulate – in under a minute. Thank you for sharing the excitement and joy that simple movement can create so quickly and easily inside you.

Children’s Brain/Body Balancing also recently inspired the dedicated EAs at East San Jose Elementary School in Albuquerque, NM, the devoted professionals at Hogares Inc. in Albuquerque, NM and the hard-working teachers at La Promesa Early Learning Center in Albuquerque, NM. Thank you all for your dedication and commitment to helping children learn and succeed using movement every day.

In spring/summer 2013 I will offer more workshops. So you too can come and learn dozens of unique and fun movements you can use with children in the classroom, at home, or on the go. You’ll also learn the Childhood Brain Science that supports movement for improving behavior and learning and hear tips on nutrition, temperament, intelligence, ADHD, and more. I look forward to meeting you next year!

Helen Cordero Primary School Hits a Home Run! Movement in the Classroom Improves Everything!

Helen Cordero Primary School in Albuquerque, NM participated in a recent Children’s Brain/Body Balancing study. The preliminary results of offering Children’s Brain/Body Balancing in half the classrooms are now in. And everyone is celebrating!

 Ellen Griffiths, the principal, and 20 teachers took the Children’s Brain/Body Balancing training in March, 2012. In less than two months, the following amazing improvements were observed in eighteen classrooms, from pre-k through 2nd grade. Imagine what the improvements could be when Children’s Brain/Body Balancing is practiced in the classrooms year round!

Improvements in the classrooms include:

Focus/Concentration – improved in 83% of the classrooms

Calmness – improved in 100% of the classrooms

Self-regulation – improved in 83% of the classrooms 

Follow directions – improved in 95% of the classrooms

Attention – improved in  95% of the classrooms

Attitude – improved in 88% of the classrooms

Effect on Learning – improved in 83% of the classrooms

Effect on Testing – improved in 100% of the classrooms           

I want to express my deepest appreciation to the principal, teachers and staff for your dedication and hard work with the children at Helen Cordero Primary School. The results of the study and the success stories are about your efforts. You make Children’s Brain/Body Balancing come alive and I am deeply grateful. Working with all of you is an honor and an inspiration!

Standing Up and Moving in the Classroom

This Minnesota classroom, and classrooms in eighteen states, are experimenting with having students stand up and move around during class. Taller desks give students a workspace they can use while standing. The freedom to move gives the students an opportunity to successfully switch on their brains and study more effectively. Children’s Brain/Body Balancing provides similar benefits without special desks. Simple movements in the classroom help children focus, self-regulate, and concentrate in under a minute!
