ACTIVE SEATING:


Why is motion important?

Active seating and movement in the classroom promote better circulation, improved attention and concentration (and often teacher’s patience!). The students love the opportunity to stay moving more than anyone.

WittFitt- Learning in Motion

“The more closely we consider the elaborate interplay of brain and body, the more clearly one compelling theme emerges; movement is essential to learning. Movement awakens and activates many of our mental capacities. Movement integrates and anchors new information and experience into our neural networks.”

Excerpt from: “Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head”
~By Carla Hannaford, Ph.D. Neurophysiologist and Educator
