Hand-Brain Exercises for Concentration and Decisions-Making Skills

Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(22)
Learn how to do brain exercises that use only the hands. These can be done during an activity when concentration is lost and there is a need to refocus. These are also helpful during the decision making process.

Class experience

Students will learn how to focus their minds on the task at hand. 
They will learn about how our brain hemispheres control our bodies and practice five different hand-brain exercise options. 
We will discuss which exercises may be used depending on the situation so they can make the best decisions for refocusing in the moment. 
For the past few years I have researched how to help my students and my own children focus on and complete the tasks assigned to them. My son has ADHD inattentive type and sees a functional neurologist who has taught us various brain exercises that help my son to focus throughout the day. In addition to what he has taught us, I have attended professional development conferences, read books on brain balance, and learned through searching articles and videos.  I am currently enrolled in a course that is further training me on the specifics of helping students with Executive Function for attention, memory, and self-regulation. 

For years I have taught my 2nd graders various brain exercises to help them with their academic and emotional successes throughout the day. They love feeling that sense of control. I can't even count the number of times my administrators and colleagues have commented on how focused and engaged my students are in class. Once you help the kids understand how the brain works, the rest can start to fall into place.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
