How can you help a child develop their vision and/or hearing? What do you do with the wiggle worm? How about the klutzy one? During this workshop, we will explore intentional movements that build the physical skills for learning. These 26 Brain Gym activities, variations and extensions are appropriate before, during or after presentations and they assist with transitions. Presenter Cindy Goldade will share individual, small, and whole group activities that work in a prepared classroom environment.
Cindy Goldade has her Montessori credential in early childhood, and is a licensed instructor for Brain Gym, Optimal Brain Organization, Visioncircles and a member of the International Faculty for the Educational Kinesiology Foundation. Cindy is coming back by popular demand. She presented for us in December 2013.

The Graduate Montessori Teacher Education program was created to meet the need for Montessori-certified teachers in Wisconsin and Minnesota, as identified by a study of K-12 superintendents and public and private Montessori principals and coordinators. Students can chose to earn Montessori certification for age levels 3-6, 6-9 or 9-12 and a master of science in education degree.
