As a teacher, I have attended a few workshops on power brain activities for children. With similar activities as S’cool Moves, Power Brain Kids: 12 Easy Lessons to Ignite Your Child’s Potential by Ilchi Lee highlights 12 activities founded in neuroscience that help children learn and focus.
According to author Ilchi Lee, every child possesses a marvelously capable brain. Using its full capacity is simply a matter of accessing and supporting the rich potential that lies beneath the surface. In Power Brain Kids, you will find a child-appropriate and parent-friendly guide to Lee’s world-renowned Brain Education (BE) method. Each lesson focuses on a particular aspect of mental ability, including concentration, creativity, memory, and emotional control. Through the book, straight-A and struggling students alike will be challenged to apply full brain capacity toward the creation of a genuinely happy and successful life. Power Brain Kids features colorful design and full-color photography to help keep your child interested and involved with the lessons. Let our charming group of Power Brain youngsters demonstrate correct posture while your kids build flexibility and strength. In addition, the brain-building exercises and games will provide hours of constructive fun for you and your child. Power Brain Kids is perfect for any teacher or parent of children ages 6-12. In twelve simple lessons, help your child:
- Develop better concentration.
- Improve memory skills.
- Gain tools for emotional self-control.
- Activate creativity and imagination.
- Establish connection between mind and body.
- Cultivate confidence and self-discipline.
The layout of this book is very user-friendly with great photographs and explanations. Many of these moves are reminiscent of yoga, which I think is also important for children to practice. Dance is also an integral part of brain activities with the brain-body connection being fostered through movement. This book also includes meditation, and a super cute “breathing buddy exercise”, where children lie in savasana with a stuffed animal on their abdomens. Breathing gently, they notice their buddy rise and fall with breath.
Would I buy this book? Yes. I think it has great ideas! Unfortunately, the book itself has no eco-friendly properties (recycled paper content, etc.), but the exercises are all natural and can help children avoid medication for attention and sensory issues.
