If the timing is right, the learning that occurs in the first five years can be a gold mine, promoting valuable cognitive and physical development that lasts a lifetime. Boosting Brain Power provides 52 strategies - one for every week of the year - to help teachers stimulate healthy brain growth in young children. In addition to well-researched strategies, each snippet of information offers teachers evidence-based instructions for how to bring the concepts to life in the classroom.
In this book, teachers will:
- Be armed with the basics of how young brains grow and how children connect with the world
- See how important attention, bonding, and communication are in these critical years
- Explore new ways to boost children's existing growth and prime them for future learning.
